The Cleveland Cavaliers have a pretty unfortunate win-loss record. They aren't going to the playoffs. But there are plenty of bright spots on this team. The brightest of said bright spots is, of course, Kyrie Irving. The second year point guard made his first All-Star team, competed in the Rising Stars Challenge, and dominated the Foot Locker Three Point Contest.
Barring the unspeakable, this was just the first of many many many All-Star appearances for the 20-year old superstar. But it was a damn nice debut. Kyrie made it clear that he was there to represent the Cavaliers and the city of Cleveland.
Commentators fawned over his every move and he gained the respect of some of the world's best players. Virtually every media outlet published a "holycrapkyrieirvingissogood" article. And I'm here to share some of those with you.
SBNation's very own, Paul Flannery, wrote a fantastic piece about Kyrie and how the future of the league is in his hands. I've had this in the cover of Fear The Sword for the past day or so and you guys apparently don't understand that it's from dotcom and not from me, so you just start making the comment section full of Cavs fans and use memes that nobody else gets. But that's okay, it just shows how big our community has gotten, haha.
