Kyrie Irving: Why Irving Will Have Growing Pains in His Rookie Season
Kyrie Irving Will Not Have It Easy His First Season In Cleveland
I traveled, with my dad, to New Jersey to watch the NBA draft. As we were driving, we listened to the radio fans pour out their hearts about how they wanted Kyrie Irving. If only Cleveland would take Irving, they would be satisfied.
Satisfied indeed. I wanted Irving as well. It is a point guards league after all. So, Irving was the pick and Cavs fans everywhere are happy. We have our next superstar, maybe. Irving is definitely a cornerstone to building a franchise. But, as you sit down and think about it Kyrie will not have it easy.
Irving comes to a Cavs team that has absolutely no scorers. This is very bad because one of his strengths is court vision. While I do expect Irving to make the all rookie team and be on highlights, he will have troubles. His jump from Duke to the NBA will be a rough one. He is not as athletic as Derrick Rose or John Wall, but One thing that Irving has is a jump shot and a high IQ. He will instantly insert himself as a leader on this team,
Irving might have some troubles when he is guarded by quicker defenders, but there is talk that Kyrie has another gear? I sure hope so, but if he shoots 50% from the field, 40% from three, and 90% from the line, fans wont complain that he isn't dunking over people. He instantly makes this team better. With Byron Scott as his coach and Baron Davis as a mentor he will grow faster than a normal point guard might,
Kyrie gives the fans in Cleveland something to be excited about. He makes Cleveland a 25-30 win team next year, and will be a stable for the franchise for years to come.
