    That spin move in the first clip is downright nasty, and exactly the reason why he can be effective in the post. Granted it was Brandon Jennings guarding him, but honestly how many guards in the NBA can cover moves like that in the post?

    so it takes Kyrie, a point guard, one season to want to learn post moves and work in the post where it took LePoop, a small forward in a power forwards body, 8 seasons to want to learn to go into the post a lot. Hmm.

    I really like how Kyrie is taking the ball to the hoop when the game is one the line, instead of settling for a low efficient jump shot.

    I see Kyrie doing things with the ball I have never seen before. If he takes everything he knows and one day makes It all work he has the potential to become the next true Jordan... What makes Kyrie great Is what makes LeBron average. Kyrie has that humble yet killer attitude that makes me think Of players like Barry Sanders, Micheal Jordan, and Ken Griffy Jr. Hopefully we can put Kyrie in this group.

    I love this kid. Every game I see him post up the pg and score and I think damn that was nice, probably won't be seeing anything like that again. And then he posts up the pg the next game and does a nasty spin move that makes me want to go practice it at the gym. And then comes the last few seconds of a close game and somehow, like always, he gets a layup in the closing seconds. You would think teams would gameplan for it, do anything to stop it, but boom one pick one crossover and one slick left handed layup and they're left like deer in headlights.

    Jordan was a super-elite athlete with great size for his position. He also didn't have much in the way of a reliable outside shot until he got older and was never a humble guy outside of TV comercials. Jordan and Lebron have a lot in common.

    A 19 year old rookie Kyrie Irving looked a lot like a 26 year old Steve Nash. Kyrie's already put the offensive skills part of just about everything and made it look easy. It's pretty hard to figure out where his game will be in 5 years.

    I just couldn't believe he was able to drive and get that layup to tie the game. I would think that teams would try and stop him, but I guess he's so good that he can get whatever he wants if he really wants it.

    Anyone else notice the veteran foul shooting technique. Instead of toeing the line he steps back half a step. Now if only he'd make a few more

    Veteran foul shooting technique? More like a kids foul shooting technique. It's actually the ONLY thing I don't like that he does...

    Lol funniest post I've ever read.

    Kyrie is going to become the next Jordan, and LeBron is average. Yep, I've seen it all. I can go die now.

    LeBron and Jordan may have a lot in common now, but until last year LeBron was nothing like Jordan. Jordan was a fiery competitor who wanted to destroy everyone he played against and didn't care about anything but winning and being better than everyone. Does any of that sound like LeBron from years one through eight?

    You could potentially make that argument about LeBron now that he's finally realized his potential and found that killer instinct, but even then, I just don't see LeBron as the fiery competitor that Jordan was. LeBron wants to be liked too much. Jordan didn't care how many people hated him and he burned just about every bridge he ever crossed on the way to the top.

    I highly doubt we'll ever see another Jordan in terms of athleticism, motivation, skill, and competitiveness. Kobe is probably the closest anyone has come, but I think we can all agree that even in his prime he was never quite Jordan.

    I do laugh whenever I see anyone call Jordan humble, though. It just shows they've never read anything about the guy and are going solely by his brilliant PR machine.
