In all of the multiverse that exists, there is not a single universe within in it in which Kyrie could be a 31+ PER, .300 WS48 player like Curry was in the 2015-16 regular season.
Kyrie isn't capable of that, and probably never will be. No matter what system you put him in, who the coach is, who his teamates are, anything.
Kyrie is great at what he does. And he is slowly starting to expand his game. But he can only do what he does. That's the only way he can play, at least at this point in his career.
Great way to put it. I would venture to say that very few players ever will be able to do what Curry did in 2016. And that PER was at 32+ until the last 5-6 games brought him down and that ws/48 was near .330 which is downright absurd.
If Kyrie is ever a ws/48 of say .220 or better and LeBron can play at 90% of what he is now, they can compete for titles I tot the future. I don't see Irving even being a ws/48 of .220 guy, though.
It doesn't matter. Like I said in my statement. Curry couldn't have a season like that again. Kyrie is very capable of having or surpassing the 2 other Curry and Kerr seasons. Can I make a case that Kyrie could have the greatest offensive season of all time by some. That would be crazy to go to that degree. I can say Kyrie could be as good as Curry his first MVP year and this last year. Much better than Curry in last years playoffs.
