On Monday afternoon, there was some uproar when ESPN released its 6-10 of their ESPN #NBArank — mostly because people don’t believe Kyrie Irving is better than Derrick Rose. At least, not yet.
Though, when the Cavaliers played the Philadelphia 76ers that night, his sick crossover said otherwise:
Amazingly, Rose wouldn’t be outdone. On the same night, maybe at a round the same time, Rose pulled out this sick, vintage move against the Milwaukee Bucks:
With Rose recovering from his torn ACL last season, Irving kind of took the league by storm in his absence. This season, he should be even better. But so should Rose. I can’t wait until these two young stars play against each other. Still, I think I would lean towards Rose but I think Irving is a lot closer to being a super star in this league than most of us realize, or maybe than most of us want to admit.
Rose or Irving, who would you take to start an NBA franchise right now? Heck, who would you take on your favorite team right now?
I’ve been high on Irving for quite some time. I’ll continue to ride with him. Give me Kyrie.
