just like Allen Iverson and some cats I know, I was pulling for Kevin Durant
to get that first Chip and since he was out balling everybody on the court including
Lebron james in route to Golden State winning the Chip in 5 games and Durant
was the FInals MVP I was hyped. however when he was asked about who was better
out of Kyrie Irving and Allen Iverson his answer threw me for a loop.
now as far as a finisher at the rim and a pure shooter I’ll give Kyrie that however after that
and i will subscribe to the fact that Kevin Durant was too young to catch Iverson in his prime, because AI was 3 times the player of Kyrie. he lead the first wackest team that I saw to the finals then Lebron duplicated that feat with the Cavs back in 07 after Iverson did it first back in 01.
Allen Iverson lead the Sixers to the finals against Shaq and Kobe and the Lakers back in 01. Kyrie ain’t done much of nothing without Lebron James on his team, except being a yearly Lottery team. remember the Cavs drafted Anthony benneitt whose NBA career is about as memorable as Tony Benneitt. Kyrie ain’t never showed me the kind of leadership
and the depth that Iverson did as a player. Kyrie got handles, wheels and can score, however he ain’t no Allen Iverson.
much respect to Kevin Durant but he ain’t in the same court.Iverson is a game changer, Kyrie the jury is still out on.
