Whether you love him, hate him, or are just sick of hearing him yell, Skip Bayless gave Cavaliers’ rookie Kyrie Irving a huge compliment.
Through Bayless’ twitter feed he had this to say about Irving–
“For next 10 yrs better believe I’ll take Kyrie over DRose. Much better shooter, passer. Little quicker but not as strong (yet). More clutch. Kyrie: pure PG who can score. DRose is a primary scorer/2 guard masquerading as a PG. Both good kids. But Kyrie more QB who can take over.”
Bayless earned a reputation in Cleveland for being extremely hard on LeBron James during his years in Cleveland. He consistently said James lacked a killer instinct and deferred too often in big situations before the rest of the media began to say the same.
During today’s First Take show, Bayless argued that Irving is the better shooter, has better instincts and makes better decisions already at age 19.
