I'm a Kyrie Irving hater... I'll admit it. I think it's ridiculous for people to compare him to Chris Paul after he played like 12 NCAA games. I'm guessing he's going to be an average NBA PG and will be surprised if he turns out to be an all-star. It's obviously too early to speculate all of this but the hype is unreal... Kyrie hasn't proved anything.

Since he's playing for the Cavs I'm sure he'll get "good" stats but what does it mean if the team wins 20-something games? Haters gonna hate.
