Good assessment of Irving. His defense and shaky outside shot will keep him just outside the MVP circle (nobody suddenly gets great at either skill) even after he escapes Lebron’s shadow but there are plenty of HoFers without an MVP award.

But you (and most of the b-ball world) make one point that is inacccurate and perhaps unfair: Irving as PG.

Irving is only a “ score-first point guard” because he’s short. If he was 4" taller, he’d be Clyde Drexler or George Gervin and nobody would be complaining about his 5 ast/game and questionable decision-making.

To paraphrase Allen Iverson :”(Irving) is not a PG, (he’s) a killer!”
