LeBron James Thinks Kyrie Irving Could be the Best Point Guard in the NBA

After unveiling his new Nike shoe last Tuesday, LeBron James spoke Slam Magazine.  They asked him about Kyrie Irving and he responded, "It's part of the reason I came back... I think he can be the best point guard in our league." LeBron is right. Kyrie Irving can easily be the best guard in the NBA this season. Playing alongside the best player in the NBA is going to help Kyrie out of course. He practically had to carry the Cavs last season. Now he has one of the best big men in the league with Kevin Love and the best player in the league in LeBron James. Irving is going to have ample opportunity to run the pick and roll with Love and will create two man highlight shows with LeBron James on the break. Both Love and James will take weight off Irving's shoulders and allow him to do his job and relax. Irving is going to show a new side to his game this year for sure. Over the summer Irving showed part of his new side by earning MVP honors for Team USA at the FIBA World Cup. He averaged 12.1 PPG and 3.6 APG. Better yet he looked like the best player on the court. Irving has improved over the summer and is ready to show the league what he's made of. It won't be hard for Kyrie Irving to look like the best guard in the league this season while playing with LeBron James and Kevin Love.
