Kyrie’s rating hinges on his efficiency. If Kyrie shoots a low percentage and turns the ball over a ton, then his weaknesses on the defensive end stand out. However, on most nights when if he’s finishing in the lane, getting to the free throw line, making his 3’s, then he’s one of the great offensive weapons in basketball, a borderline superstar with “heat check” capabilities.

With Lebron the main playmaker, Kyrie gets to thrive in the Allen Iverson mold (a 2-guard in a PG body) vs. when Kyrie had to carry the Cavs on his own and he was Stephon Marbury 2.0, a dazzling individual talent who struggled to translate his game into team success.
