ESPN’s Chris Palmer sure thinks so. Kyrie Irving > Derrick Rose.

Though Minnesota’s Ricky Rubio wasn’t a part of the 2011 NBA Draft, the individual who presently stands at the top is. Per Thorpe:
Oof. Cleveland fans, this was not a good showing by the Cavaliers. Kyrie Irving got the Cavs started early with 11 quick points. It was all downhill from there as the Cavaliers shot 30% while allowing the Bulls to have their way in the paint. Chicago finished shooting 55.4%. Oh, and Derrick Rose didn’t play.
The Cleveland Cavaliers (6-7) officially kick off the most brutal part of their schedule Friday night when they host the Eastern Conference leading Chicago Bulls (13-3) to the Q. This game is naturally being billed as the first showdown between Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving, a pair of young PGs who will be playing a
[Derrick Rose] is a great point guard, the best probably in the game, [but] it’s just another game. I’m not really facing Derrick Rose. I’m facing the Chicago Bulls. It’s the Cleveland Cavaliers versus the Chicago Bulls. That’s what I’m looking forward to. – Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving on Friday’s opponent Derrick Rose and
It all comes down to this. Win or go home. Who wants it more? These cliches and many others like them, while annoying, are to be expected frequently today from television pundits everywhere.

In typical Cavaliers fashion, a powerful first half performance against the streaking Chicago Bulls fell apart with a disastrous third quarter. And just like that, a 23-point turnaround in 12 minutes led to yet another loss for Cleveland by a 100-91 final score. Anderson Varejao, Mo Williams, Daniel Gibson and Joey Graham all missed the
I am sure if anyone outside of Cleveland even reads this they will brush it off like some stupid “homer” piece. That’s fine. In a way it is a homer piece. That is, in essence, an integral part of the story that nobody else seems to want to talk about. I know this might also
