Jason, all terrific points about Kyrie. Really hit the nail on the head with the make or miss league.

But then, who do we compare Kyrie to? He totally outclassed Steph in the Finals; Russ makes Kyrie look like Steve Nash; CP3 is an elite defender but nowhere near Kyrie offensively.

Maybe the problem is we compare Kyrie to LeBron? Every shot Kyrie takes is judged by whether or not LeBron should’ve taken it.

Here’s the question: Kyrie or Westbrook?

Before you say Russ, ask yourself if he would go 17–24 for 41 in Game 5. Russ would be more like 17 of 44. Would Russ have hit the Game 7 three?
