RE: Kyrie Irving and the NBA ROY
Connect the dots 903 dookie homer.- Posted by kato_karma.01
kato directly responded to snubby's request to "name a player that UNC has put in the NBA in the last 10 years that is anywhere near the level of Boozer, Irving, or Deng"...with "UNC's Ty Lawson led his playoff team in ppg and apg. His value and contributions definitely qualify as being "anywhere near" the dookies you mention (apg better than Irving, ppg better than Boozer or Deng)."
There was no attempt to disparage Irving or Boozer or Deng...just provided some comparative stats that discredited snubby's "anywhere near" blurt. Then you felt compelled to jump in and mis-direct/deflect...which is something you do quite well and quite often.
"anywhere near" is subjective. You think "anywhere near" means ppg and mpg or whatever.
I think "anywhere near" is player A made the all-star game so player B that also made the all-star game is "anywhere near" player A.
As soon as Lawson makes an all-star game, he will be near Deng and Boozer.
