I disagree. Strongly.

What? He most definitely has superstar potential. He is tall, really fast, has a crazy wing-span, has great ball handling skills for his position, he already has more of an offensive game than Blake, and he is already one of the best defenders in the league at his position, whereas Blake and Love are two of the worst. If I got to pick one of those three to have on my team I would pick Davis a million times out of a million. Actually I can't think of anyone outside of Lebron and Durant that I would for sure pick over him to start a franchise with. I do agree with you on the last part though, he is definitely not the best looking guy.

Yeah, he may be an idiot, but what does zero feedback have to do with anything?

There are plenty of idiots here with a ton of feedback

Anthony Davis is good, but too boring. No flash. He didnt even want to dunk in rookie game, lol, think you are going to see alot of frustrated people watching anthony davis ball like a all star and cards staying still in value. Just my opinion

don't forget more kyrie high ends coming out with immaculate. unlike a westbrook exquisite for 800 bucks three color 225 total or a rose exquisite 99, you have about 5 -10 times that amount, thanks to panini and to add to that, kyries are at 1500 plus for his high ends. at that pricing, he needs to be already be in the playoffs and an two time mvp winner. But wait, to add to that, what team is he on? Cavs will be in the talks to take down Heat over Nets, Bulls and Pacers?

Anthony Davis is Garnett in the making and will be a superstar. Kyrie Irving is already a superstar, the way his cards are valued.

That's my perspective too. Kyrie's on court production + card production < his card values, and that is not a surprise considering how pricey his stuff is (arguably one of the top 3 or 4 expensive players in the league to collect).

If CP3 isn't a top 10 player cost-wise to collect, and Kyrie will be lucky to match his level of productivity (best PG in the league, arguably), what odds are there that Kryie production validates those values in the long run?

People treat Kyrie like he's 30 years old and he's never won anything.

He hasn't even been able to buy a beer for an entire year yet. Lets give him a few games before we worry about his lack of MVP's.

The best season Tyreke Evans has ever had - in his entire career - wasn't as good as Kyrie was last year as 20 year old. Hell it wasn't as good as Kyrie when he was a 19 year old rookie.

Good comparison though.

So Kyrie and Tyreke Evans games are comparable?

Are you sure you're not just throwing things at the wall and hoping they stick?

hahaha you guys really love kyrie. I think he'll be like a george hill or somethin.....i guess he starts...im sorry i wont post on this thread anymore. I just don't think he's the next good PG, i think everyone was bored with that rookie class and the quality of PG's

it's a bizarre hobby, and world, when Kyrie cards costs hundreds and thousands.... yet you can pick up legends for $20-$50 a pop.

if Kyrie ends up with an average, non-championship career... the values on his cards will go down.

but if he has a solid, championship career... is there even much room for them to go up?

at this point there must be thousands of Kyrie rookie autos out there. it's not like they are rare.

people should collect him if you like him. but investing in him doesn't seem to have much upside.

I think that's gonna be the case with all 'hot rookies' in all sports with the amount of cards produced these days.

5.7 turns per game ... yikes.


The end of that game vs the T-Wolves was rough. 9 Turnovers.


Kyrie just ballhogged it up or turned the ball over on what seemed like every play he made in the 4th quarter.

Let's hope he understands it's OK to not be the star as long as your team wins...
