Kyrie wasn't on the same level as LBJ or Wiggins but he was a very highly touted prospect. If not for injuries his one and done year he may very well have had that hype. He was still the number one...

Great post. ESPN loves to sell cherry picked stats.

I think Dwight teamed up with him but I do agree. Dwight was always an underachiever. He got by on sheer athleticism and never developed a top rate post game. Shame too because he has every tool and...

People make this huge fuss about LBJ getting to 5 Finals, Magic got to 9 Finals in a 12 years. Only 1981 and 1986 (Houston) and 1990 (Blazers) did he fail to reach the Finals and he took home 5...

Also true but I wouldn't count 1 game against Demarr. He is needed, especially with Thabo out already. The Hawks defense is taking a huge hit.
