As we near the start of the NBA preseason, most of the eyes around the NBA world will be trained in Cleveland, Ohio as LeBron James and the Cavaliers will have numerous interesting story lines this upcoming season.
One of those story lines revolves around star point guard Kyrie Irving as he looks to lead the newly-formed super team in the Eastern Conference.
Recently, Sports Illustrated’s Ben Golliver sat down with Kyrie’s teammate LeBron James at his LeBron 12’s release and asked about the Cavaliers newest additions.
Below is what LeBron had to say about his new teammates, Kyrie and Kevin Love:
“I believe Kyrie can be the best point guard in the league very soon, and Kevin Love is already in the discussion as far as being the best power forward in the league,” James said.
If you happen to ask most NBA fans, I’m pretty sure that most would put Kyrie on the top-level of point guards in the game today but that’s some high praise from LBJ.
