Kyrie Irving played magnificent in the East’s 163-155 win over the West in the 2014 NBA All Star Game. Irving was named MVP after proving he is one of the greatest point guards to ever step on the floor. At 21 years old and already playing in his second career all star game, Irving scored 31 points, grabbed five rebounds and had an incredible 14 assists.
Irving was selected first overall out of Duke in 2011 and has averaged 20.9 points per game this season. This is Irving’s third year taking home an award over all star weekend. In 2012 he was named Rising Stars MVP, and in 2013 he won the three point shootout. In 2012, he also won Rookie of the Year. I think Irving will be the starter for the 2016, 2020, and 2024 Dream Teams. He will be only 32 when the 2024 games start.
He has the potential to not only be the greatest point guard, but also the greatest player of all time.
