Kyrie’s Defense

November 13th, 2012 by John Krolik

From the Truehoop guru himself, Henry Abbott, a Skype interview with Kyrie Irving.  They discuss Kyrie’s defense, and John Hollinger’s criticism of it. Kyrie freely admits  how awful it was last year, but claims his  issues on that side of the ball last year were  mostly conditioning-related, and that he  has already shown significant improvement. Anyways, some good stuff, and food for thought as the Cavs look to shut down a Brooklyn Nets team with one of the best point guards in the league, Deron Williams. Early on, Byron Scott has chosen a few times to stick Alonzo Gee on the star point guards, rather than watch Kyrie struggle. That may be tougher to do this game, however, as one would assume Gee will have to defend Joe Johnson. Here’s the link.
