I watched a lot of Cavs games this season and it appears to me that when Cleveland is on the offensive end of the floor Kyrie is more of a threat to me than Lebron James. I mean Kyrie has it all offensively since he has a crazy handle, a nice jumper, and creative moves when driving to the basket. Lebron on the other hand is not that much of a threat to me when he is on the offensive end of the floor since his jumper is not the strongest part of his game. Plus he thrives off of getting his points on the fast break and down in the post. Kyrie can hurt you in so many different ways with his speed, passing, and jump shooting which is why he should be the player an opposing coach should game plan for on the defensive end.

Agree or Disagree?

I agree. I would focus more on Kyrie. I would play Lebron one on one not letting him get other players involved or getting them easy shots.

I agree. Kyrie is more of a threat...and he knows it too.

Irving is more of a threat because Lebron is one of the few guys they have that can defend well so he has to expend more energy at the defensive end.

Plus, Lebron is more efficient and will get his points.

If you make life hard on Irving he's more likely to finish with a 6 of 20 night than Lebron is and that would be an almost automatic win seeing as how Cleveland has to outscore good teams to win.

Plus, you pressure the guy with 2 rings or the guy who has yet to play a playoff game.
