Scout: Kyrie Irving’s Game, Attitude Has Improved

Basketball Insiders

Published

“I can’t believe the difference in his game and his on-court attitude,” said one league scout. “I’m now interested to see if it will continue.”

The effort level Irving has unveiled at the defensive end is unmistakable. For the first time in his career, he is fighting through screens, and it’s had a positive ripple effect throughout the Cavs’ defense. On offense, Irving has willingly taken a step back and allowed James to become the team’s primary ball handler, while he’s become more of a ball mover and team-oriented offensive player. He now patiently waits until James goes to the bench and then steps forward and re-takes on the role as primary scorer.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
