Ok, so let's try to keep this about Kyrie Irving rather than getting off-topic to the point of Max closing down the thread. With that said . . . Kyrie looked great tonight. He definitely made some rookie mistakes tonight. He had three of his shots blocked, and it's because he went into the lane with nowhere to go. That's expected. He's testing the waters to see what will work and what won't in the NBA, and he will adjust accordingly. He definitely has some sick cross-over moves and sick handles, and they will only get better. One thing I noticed is that Kyrie seems pretty out of shape right now. He needs to gain about 10 lbs of muscle and lose 10 lbs of fat this season, and that's just this season. He also doesn't seem as strong or athletic as he has been. I'll be excited when he's more in shape as the season progresses. I loved that he had the ball in his hands a ton and that he's not afraid to take the game-winning shot. He definitely showed that he can score as well and get to the line. Again, this is another reason why he needs to get stronger--so he can draw more fouls because teams will be forced to foul him. I really hope that he and Tristan get a lot more playing time as the season progresses. I wouldn't mind seeing he and Tristan work themselves up to 36 minutes a game. It would be good experience, and it would demand that they be in shape in order to handle the minutes. Also, the more minutes they get, the more of a chance both of them have at getting rookie of the year. The offense looked horrible tonight in terms of working together as a team. No one was setting screens or anything. It was offense on the fly and practically every man for himself. I hope that this doesn't last.
