    You have to pick Paul because of potential. No offense to Kyrie but he already is almost as good has he will ever be. Paul has so much room to grow still and he's already averaging almost 18 8 and 4 and is a defensive stopper. That's scary. Kyrie is a 6'3 pg with a lightning quick handle and a deadeye shooter. Paul George is a 6'9 sg with a limited handle who is a streaky shooter and still struggles but has superstar athleticism. If I didn't think Paul could tap into his potential then I'd say Kyrie in a second but from what I've seen this year PG is a man who is finally realizing what he can do on the court. With even limited growth next year PG can be averaging 22 9 and 5. That's crazy
    Again, Kyrie is two years younger than Paul. I don't understand how you can be so sure he's tapped all of his potential.

    Not sure if this has been posted anywhere but there was some high praise thrown Paul's way from ESPN chats yesterday. One from Wilbon and the other Michael Wallace. Just a couple interesting perspectives from a couple national guys who watch, talk, and write a lot of basketball.
    Wow. How can Tony Parker continue to be so criminally underrated? He's top 5 in the league.

    Sorry Pacer fans (and I am a lifelong fan), but there isn't one GM in the league that would take Paul George over Kyrie Irving. Yes, PG is a great young player on both sides of the court, but Kyrie is budding superstar. They just don't come along very often. Every other argument doesn't matter next to that one, IMHO.

    Mike Wilbon suggested in his chat that Paul George would be on his All NBA 1st team ballot.

    I get what you are saying, but there is a whole lot of evidence to suggest that Paul George is also a budding superstar.

    I think if you put this poll on a board outside the central division like let's say a Rockets board, a lot of them would pick PG, JMO. Paul's all star performance blew away a lot of people and he has been killing it in our nationally televised games this year. Embrace it.

    I think a lot of that is the positions they play. Great point guards are highly sought after. Wing players are easy to find. I think they are both great young players but I voted for Irving because he plays the point.....

    This whole great wing players are easy to find and point guards are so hard to find is ridiculous.

    Is there a deeper position in the league right now than point guard?

    I don't agree with that at all.

    I can think of one GM who would take PG over Kyrie....probably the bloody Pacers. I just don't blieve for a second that if Kyrie was offered straight up for Paul we would take the deal.

    I also don't believe for a second that the Cavs would trade Kyrie for PG. There is a very good chance these guys could be taking over a couple of the superstar mantles that get passed around in the next couple years.

    As Wade falls off (and as much as he is runnning from father time, he is), and as Melo and New York continue to not hang banner, Paul and Kyrie will take those spots.

    Hopefully, starting this weekend, Paul will make this debatable once again.

    Yeah he's dropped it for the past month or so, hasn't he? Bizarre. Hopefully just young legs needing a few days off to recharge. Still need to remember what he did from basically mid Jan to mid March. I think he'll get back there and probably higher, but I just hope it won't take til next fall.

    Well if he doesn't get back to at least "maybe ASG" level this will be a short playoff run. As TJoe and I have discussed, Paul doesn't seem to blend well with Roy having it going in the low post.

    It doesn't help that he's been pretty cold from 3, even while getting pretty good looks.

    To be fair to both sides here, Kyrie is taking a lot of heat in Cleveland right now. "Attitude issues". Like not participating in fan appreciation night.

    Right now Kyrie is better, but PG has more potential

    Funny how they were talking about adding some veteran talent to win now, and one of the main players discussed was Danny Granger.

    I think he can, even while he's been "bad" he's still tossed in some decent games during the stretch. I think a lot of it is legs getting a week off will help him I think, his body has to adjust over the summer to the work load he got this season. I expect to continue to see an upward trend, but there definitely could be a speed bump here that we just have to live throuhg. I think when we look back on it 10 years from now it will be worth it though.

    John Wall who I have never been impressed with was extremely impressive the last time the pacers played the Wizards. He's extremely fast - I would probably put him as fast as Iverson in his prime - 2001 - maybe faster.
