Not mentioning LaVar Ball by name, 76ers special assistant Jerry Colangelo said the people aroundNBA Draft prospect Lonzo Ball will make having him on the roster challenging for a team.
Colangelo, though, suggested it would be a mistake for a team not to select Ball because of that reason.
Still, saying Irving is better than one of the most prolific scorers in NBA history might be a stretch. But if you compare Iverson and Irving through the first six years of their careers, you’ll see the latter compares favorably.
Irving, 25, already has an NBA title (who could forget his go-ahead 3 in Game 7 last year?) and has been named to four All-Star teams, compared to Iverson’s three. And while Iverson has the edge in points, rebounds and assists per game, Irving has been a more efficient shooter: He has a 45.7 shooting percentage (compared to Iverson’s 44.5), has shot 38.3 percent from beyond the arc (compared to Iverson’s 31.8 percent) and has an effective shooting percentage of 51.2 (compared to Iverson’s 45.1).

Regardless of who’s actually better, Durant saw enough from Irving in the finals to warrant those comparisons.
Kyrie just makes you happy, Durant said of Irving’s play. He makes you happy when you watch him play. You just smile when you watch him play, cause it’s like, for somebody to be that skilled, you know had to work tirelessly. The stuff he has in his package is next level stuff that, like, you can teach your kids how to do it, but you’ll never be able to do it.
Authentic Kids Andre Williams Jersey I’ve never seen anybody block his layup. He’s 6-2. I’ve never seen one person pin his layup on the glass. Not one. Cause like, the spin he got on it, and he don’t even have to look at it, it’s like, I got so much respect for him because I know how much work he put in to be that good. I’ve never seen anybody like him.
