    He's definitely better than Wade and will be better than Rondo in a year or two

    damn! Kyrie-diculous! the masked wonder was a phenom!

    Knicks really missed Melo tonite, JR and Felton seemed to take up the slack, as usual,
    taking too many shots, but Feltip was clutch when it counted... as usual.

    Great game for the Man Handler, tipping balls out, clutch free throws at the end.
    keeping Varajao from O-bounds.

    Copeland, key. Prigger, key steals. but WHY OH WHY did Wood Son not play Copeland and Prig together?
    they had such a great P&R combo going down pre-season, yet they were not on the court together... strange!

    Novakaine, nice game, not only with first half 3's, but rebounding and playing some D.
    kinda went Novacold in the 2nd half and missed free throw, but he's a keeper who deserves his minutes.

    but, man, ya gotta hand it to Batman, the kid put on a display I haven't seen since Kobe burned
    Knicks for 60+.

    i'll take the win, granted it came at expense of a missed free throw, but hey, Knicks missed a couple
    at the end too. so be it.

    10-0.

    At the end of that game Kyrie was so clutch I couldn't believe it... Every time one of his tough shots went down I was like wtf just happened... Knicks can count themselves lucky it wasn't Kyrie at the line to tie.

    Good win for us without our star man, Cavs are a big sleeper team this year, they might have a crappy record but they are going places.

    I rather have Kyrie over Rondo because of what Kyrie will BECOME in 2-3 years.

    Rondo in his 2nd year was a crappy player, his skills obviously evolved; but no one projected him to be that good. He's overrated because his assist numbers look sexy, I've said before Rondo was an athletic Brevin Knight.

    Kyrie's arsenal of tools are deep. His defense and passing will improve.

    One weakness for Irving though is that he's injury prone. He has to perserve his body if he wants to have a long career.

    It's sad because guards like Irving and Rose are some of the most talented guards in this era of basketball but will be faced with the challenges of injuries.

    I would like to investigate the athletic training stuff of these teams. Portland Trailblazers have done a horrible job at perserving their players and keeping them healthy...where as the Phoenix Suns are always affective with maintaining their players and keeping them durable.

    As long as Rondo is a poor jumpshooter and free throw shooter he will always be very limited as will the Celtics. Let's face it, the Celtics have as much if not more talent and experience as the Spurs, they also have a good coach, yet they are nowhere near as much of a threat.

    Kyrie is an incredible PG. His assist numbers might be low but look at what he's surrounded with in Cleveland... Can anyone hit a jumper on that team? Not really.

    Lillard also impresses me a lot. Him and Kyrie have pure ice in their veins. Both of these dudes remind me of Felton, but are likely to become much better versions of him. Though I doubt either of them will ever be as fast or strong.

    I think Lilliard is a phenomenon just based on the fact he's a rookie getting 38 minutes a game. Imagine how much respect and responsibility you earned from a franchise to be that good.

    Good clip on Lilliard right here:

    Great video. I loved having the dude on my fantasy team, the first few games of the season he blew my mind... But then I realised the Blazers are a disgusting horrible team to watch so I traded him

    On the coverage, Walt was saying Kidd should have played Irving closer, and I'm wondering how exactly he's supposed to do that, on that corner 3, Kidd is basically raping him and he still gets it to go. He's an amazing talent.

    The cavs record is so decieving, they're so much better than their record. I think by the end of the season they will be in the hunt for the 8th seed.

    Hmmmmm.. It's possible but I think they might be a little too young/raw.

    Irving second year player best player on the team.
    Varejao veteran presence and very hard working player on both ends.
    Tristan Thompson not developing much. The talent is there but I'd expect him to be putting up closer to 12/8/2 by this point.
    Alonzo Gee great defender, but not much range.
    Dion Waiters haven't seen enough of him, he's supposed to be pretty good though.
    CJ Miles decent sixth man.

    The rest of their team is very mediocre, they really don't have any depth.

    Knicks
    Heat
    Hawks
    Nets
    Bulls
    Bucks
    Pacers
    Celtics
    Sixers

    All these teams have considerably more talent and experience. Another top 5 pick and a year or two of development and Cavs can definitely be a playoff team again however.

    Really fun team to watch too, they play hard and are well coached.

    Kyrie is playing just like John Wall in inproper teams Cavs looks like is goin to next draft pick

    i am dissapointed again with number minutes Copeland he almost didnt play


    Kidd threes if those 50% were hit that game will be diffrent @ the end

    and such game proofs we need STAT or scorer like that

    and Cavs allways mine hated team allways remember that this team doesnt matter which roster from Mark Price to Carlos Boozer from Ilgauskas to Terrel Brandon from Wesley person to Andre Miller......

    allways Cavs stopping Knicks win records deosnt matter away or home.

    Games such as last night show the importance of Shump. No doubt Kyrie can ball but Shump is bar none one the elite perimeter defenders in the league. Kyrie dose not go off MJ style if Shump's on the floor.
