Kyrie vs. Byron (but in a good way)


I'm rooting for Byron, personally.

Sometimes it seems like all that Cavs fans want to talk about is weighty, depressing stuff: Kyrie’s horrendous defense on the pick-‘n-roll, Dion’s off-balance 22-footers, or Tyler Zeller’s general awfulness. Which makes sense, of course. The Cavs are a pretty terrible basketball team. But with a young team like the Cavs, with a young star like Kyrie Irving, sometimes stories come out about the Cavs that just make you smile, stories that don’t require general hysterics about Greg Oden’s knees.

For example, this one. Apparently Byron Scott has issued a three-point shooting challenge to Kyrie Irving, in preparation for Kyrie’s performance in the NBA All Star Three-Point Shootout. From Uncle Drew himself: “I just read something today where coach Scott unofficially challenged me…that’s something a third-place winner would do, go behind my back and challenge me.” Byron Scott finished third in the Three-Point Shootout himself in 1988, after finishing dead last in 1987. Is there anyway the Cavs can get this televised?

P.S.

Watch this Kyrie highlight reel. Immediately.

Probably my favorite highlight reel of his. He’s smooth like butter.

Got chills watching that Kyrie highlight reel. Amazing what he’s already done. Once the commitment to defense starts to materialize, he will go down as one of the best to play the game at that position.

The real question…which is more blown out of proportion:

A. The Cavs’ deficiencies.

B. Cavfan’s angst over the Cavs’ deficiencies.

Complaining about complainers, SMH.
