    This nonsense again? Do you really not realize that these numbers are pretty much the best numbers a PG ever had?

    he will be pretty close to those numbers. You do realize he's having one of the best rookie seasons ever by a PG.

    22/8/5 on 50/40/90 shooting is certainly reasonable for him next year - he should come pretty close to those numbers these next 27 games.

    He is shooting 43.5% in his last 15 games, 50% is way far from where he is now with 47.5% that includes a month with extremely hot shooting where he also played the least minutes. 90% free throws are also extremely rare. 40% on threes is certainly reasonable. 52/43/92 is just a wet dream though.

    My bad, I am not sure but you might be right. I just saw Toronto on the schedule.

    Oh well, that's what I get for not following Toronto basketball... phhttt

    Kyrie Irving is pretty good at basketball. You guys agree?

    This is NOT EAYOR. If you attack other posters personally, there are consequences. Keep the topic on basketball.

    All I have to say is I am so happy that Harrison Barnes stayed in school another year, because it really seemed like the rumors going around (and yes maybe it was all smokescreen) was that Barnes is who the Cavs wanted, and would've seriously considered him with the 1st pick if he wasn't already their favorite. So glad things turned out how they did, and that we didn't blow the pick on D Will either

    25/8/5/1.5/.7 is certainly not unreasonable for Kyrie. Here are his per 36 minutes numbers this season. Also, for the first half of the season, Kyrie's FG% and 3P%

    Season Age Tm Lg G GS MP FG FGA FG% 3P 3PA 3P% FT FTA FT% ORB DRB TRB AST STL BLK TOV PF PTS
    2011-12 19 CLE NBA 35 35 1084 8.0 16.8 .475 1.4 3.5 .406 4.0 4.6 .864 1.1 3.1 4.2 6.3 1.1 0.5 3.4 2.7 21.4
    Career NBA 35 35 1084 8.0 16.8 .475 1.4 3.5 .406 4.0 4.6 .864 1.1 3.1 4.2 6.3 1.1 0.5 3.4 2.7 21.4

    Kyrie will be playing close to 36 minutes per game next season if not more. Not only that, but his numbers will likely be higher than these per 36 numbers. He's going to improve a lot over the off-season because of his lack of conditioning and an NBA-ready body. His skills will improve immensely as well. From these per 36 numbers, Kyrie would only have to get 3.6 more points, 1.7 more assists, .8 more rebounds, .4 more steals, and .2 more blocks per game to reach the 25/8/5/1.5/.7 I think he can do next season. LeBron was able to improve all of his numbers the season after his rookie season by amounts far greater than I just listed in all statistics except blocks. Kyrie's per 36 scoring is 21.4 compared to LeBron's 19.1 from his rookie season. Kyrie's efficiency is also off the wall comared to James' rookie season numbers. You have too little faith in Kyrie if you don't think that Kyrie can't improve to the numbers I listed especially with the evidence showing that he can do it.

    Also, through the first 20 games of the season, here are Kyrie's shooting efficiency numbers:

    .511 .411 .821

    Other than ft%, his fg% and 3p% are telling of how he could do 52/43 next season no problem. Also, these last 15 games, here's his ft%: .92. He's a rookie, and he's only going to get better. We've already seen him in long streaks of what he can do. Right there's your 52/43/92.

    It's no coincidence that Kyrie and Ricky Rubio both slumped around the same time. Ricky of course is injured now but Kyrie is missing shots and lay ups that were gimme's before.

    I feel like Kyrie is deferring a lot during the first 3 quarters to conserve for the fourth. A sure sign he knows he's tired. I wouldn't mind seeing Kyrie come off the bench for a few games with even more limited minutes than Byron is giving him so he can come out stronger than before.

    This schedule is harsh and pretty much unprecedented so it's no shocker.

    He's averaging 17pts 7ast 5rebs over his last five games...Yes he had two poor shooting nights but I wouldn't call it a slump.

    I would rather Byron lower his minutes than bring him off the bench.

    The lack of surrounding talent, shorten schedule, and being 19 all contribute to Kyrie's lack of consistency
