“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.
