Will Kyrie Irving ever be the best player in the league?

Do you think that he can eventually be the best in the league?

Imo in his prime he will be a 29-8 player and lead his team to a couple finals appearances. Hes proved hes clutch and has the work ethic to be the best in the league so do you think he will pull it all together

As long as either prime LeBron or Durant are in the league (= around 10 more years), he won't be the best.

Generally, I don't think he'll ever be the best. He'll be a superstar but not THE best. No.

Let's not overrate Irving. I'm one of those who expect Irving to be great but let's not overriacte.

He won't be better than Rose either IMO.

I think he'll be injury prone all throughout his career. Already he's broken a jaw, a hand, a finger and sprained his shoulder.

Without the injury issues I think he'll be "second" to Durant for the rest of his career unless he either leaves Cleveland or gets some help. He probably won't even be the best point guard as long as Rondo & Westbrook are around.

As long as Kevin Durant is in the league (which will probably be through Kyrie's prime), I doubt it.

No he won't be the best player in the league any time soon... maybe best PG EVENTUALLY. But there's a lot of young PGs with a lot of talent so even that will be a challenge for him. I don't think he will average 8 assists at any point of his career, also.

Not as long as LeBron is still breathing. But he is going to be ELITE in his prime. He's so skilled and is like a Derrick Rose but with an even better shot.

The next step is to see whether he can put the Cavaliers on the map just like that one Guy a couple of years back.

No. Durant is only like 24, so he will always be better. Lebron is about 30 so he has like 8 years left too.

the only way he can put the Cavs on the map is if they continue to suck and get into the lottery and gather a young but efficient line up strong enough to compete . They already got a good young core just a few more pieces

I don't see him becoming the best player in the league, but I do see him becoming the best point guard down the road. The guy has all the skills a point guard needs. Defensively, he's pretty set. He has the quickness to keep up with anybody in the league although he is not the fastest point guard in the league (guys like Wall, Hill, and Teague surpass him in that category). He has a natural ability to score not only easily, but whenever he wants. He has the rare ability to know exactly when to score and give his team the best chance of winning. His passing is great. The kid has all of the great assests and fundamentals to be the best point guard in the game. However, I think that Kevin Durant will always have a step up on him just because he is an amazing scorer and will be the best player in the league come the time that LeBron slows down, if that ever even happens.

Well unless he gets injured I dont see whats stopping him. I think Chris Paul had that potential until his knee injury and Irving reminds of CP just without the court vision but a better scorer. So unless he has a serious injury I think he has the potential too.

He's a good passer, not great. Still needs to work on it, but he can get the job done passing the ball.

Doesn't need to be the best.

Just win.

I'm very high on Kyrie Irving. Wouldn't be surprised if he's a top 3 player in the league some day.

No becuz Durant is still young and once lebron is outta his prime, KD will be the best, and once KD gets older, Kylie will be outta his prime

Definitely not IMO. Barring injuries, Durant and Lebron will still dominate as the best players in the league throughout Irving's career. Do I think he can become eventually the best PG in the league? Maybe. Maybe even a top 3 player at max, but to Durant's prime stretching over Irving's prime, I don't think Irving will ever be the best player in the league. The kid is a good scorer and a solid rebounder and play amer but doesn't look like best player in the league material.

Nah, maybe best PG in the league at some point. Even saying that would be a stretch. Realistically, he will probably be in the top 5 active players in the league, years from now.

No matter who's in the league I think he will be somewhere in the top 5 margin but never the best player . Don't get me wrong he's a hell of a player .
