The recency bias is insane. Russ makes Kyrie look like Steve Nash? WHAT? You realize Westbrook averaged over 10 assists a game last year right? Kyrie averaged 4, while also scoring under 20 a game. And saying CP3 is nowhere near Kyrie offensively is an absolute joke. I can only conclude you’re a huge homer, or that you haven’t watched those guys play.
CP3, Westbrook, and Curry are in a PG tier by themselves. Kyrie is competing alongside Wall and Lillard, and you could definitely make an argument that he’s the 3rd best in that group as well(personally I’d have him 2nd).
Ask yourself, if you put Irving on the Blazers to start this year do they even make the playoffs?
