Why you keep reaching? Gilbert and Kyrie aren't even comparable. The fu*k?
Tell me in ways they aren't..
they both are combo gaurds, both who shoot on the perimeter more than drive, both have extremely wet midrange and three point games. Both have the ability to get to the rim... BOTH were compared to Kobe because what do they do? Score first, score second, pass 3rd. It wouldn't even matter if Kyrie played perminant 2 gaurd, because he barely facilitate AS IS, he's already acting like SG in the PG role. And honestly the best player in the front court usually dominates the ball regardless..
Notice the Lakers didn't move forward until Kobe started cracking 10+ a.ssist and not Nash.. Why? because Kobe NEEDS the rock and he was going to have to be the one to do the passing to get anything going, it didn't matter if Nash was next to him. Kobe is the primary ball handler, so in order for the D'Antoni offense to work the primary ball handler damn well better pretend to be the best passer as well.
Kyrie isn't better than Rose Westbrook nor CP3. Neither was Gilbert.
Only Rose and CP3 has shown the ability to be able to balance out a high a.ssist total while maintaing a high scoring out put.. Until Kyrie cracks 25ppg and 8+ a.ssist, what he's doing now on 24ppg with 5 a.ssist will never be better, kid hasn't even learned how to balance out his game yet. THATS, why he plays like Arenas. When arenas tried to pass more his scoring suffered tremendously, as well as Kyrie until he learns how to do both.
