Seriously. He's already a top 5 point guard without question.

Absolutely. Anyone who disagrees just doesn't know basketball.

I'm only taking CP3 and Westbrook over him right now. People will point to his assists but the Cavs can't shoot for **** and their bigs are awful finishers. He can dish out dimes.

I wouldn't mind trying to pry the just traded Josh Selby away from the Cavs, have Kidd, Felton and Priggs mentor him a little.

he may have just had a bad day, but this goes to show you about the talents of the rest of the league. if scalabrine can dominate anyone. he may have picked 4 guys that can't see their penis if they look down, but still.

Carmelo wanted him over Shump lol. It really sucks that the Knicks are not looking to move on the roster, I wanted Delonte and Kmart but its not happening. I trust Glenwald he's only picked up one dud in Gadz so we'll seen.

I'd love Selby I think he'd be great off the bench. What do you think we'd have to give up for him?

No winning team would ever have Selby in their rotation

I feel like Kyrie is the best scoring PG since AI. I know AI was a SG most of his career, but early in his career, he played PG, only to be put at SG because he was too awesome at scoring not to be put there.

Feel like Cavs will have no choice but to put Kyrie at SG soon, the way he doesn't really distribute the ball to his teammates, because he's just too awesome and too unstoppable not to score. They've tried to use Walton to give Kyrie the ball. They need an Eric Snow for Kyrie.

Kyrie is a pg plain and simple, he just is also an elite scorer, and he has to score because he is the best scorer on that team, and his turnovers have everything to do with youth and quality of teammates.

he's going through exactly what LeBron had to go through out there, having to score the most points and run the offense, but no one would dare say take the ball out of leBrons hands and put him off it.

Kyrie passing, vision on the court is comparable with the good pg's in the league.

Cleveland had better get him some talent around, he's not gonna be happy with trying to outscore opponents.

He has zero comparable skill to A.I., Kyrie can shoot and score.

I hope we can pick him up in 2015.

LA is gonna make a big push for him too when they start their youth movement in a couple years.

gonna be interesting to see what he decides to do. Cleveland isnt exactly a bustling metropolis or an ideal place to spend your prime years at.

JR and Crawford always had NBA talent.

Selby does not.

Ignore all the draft day hype. What is one thing Selby does well on a basketball court?

Fit has nothing to do with him not being able to shoot, make FT's, protect the ball, dish the ball, or finish at the rim.

Can he develop into a decent player down the road? Maybe. But like I said, no team interested in winning games now would ever have him in the rotation.
