Default Keep in Mind: There's People that still think Wall > Kyrie...

...DESPITE the disparity in skill the two have shown thus far. The basketball knowledge of ISH is at an all-time low, and that's saying something...

Last season Wall was the better player. Kyrie looks better so far this year, although Wall is still a better playmaker than him.

SOOOOO many people were sh*tting on Kyrie for YEARS. Talking about his defensive analytics, lack of efficiency, etc. Blah, blah, blah. Dude's a straight assassin and you want him on your side when the game is on the line.

Acknowledge the people that were right about this LONG before you were if you wanna be taken seriously.

I've never said Wall was better, and I was arguing Kyrie > Lillard when Kyrie was still on the Cavs. I've always been a fan of his game.

80% of my posts are blatant trolling. This is apart of the 20%, and it's baffling that people are serious about Wall. It couldn't be anymore evident who's the better player right now.

Lol. how are you defining playmaker? Kyrie helped will his team, at the PG position, over a team with the most wins in NBA history two seasons ago.

John Wall got outplayed by Kelly Olynyk in the semi conference finals.

There's people that have been right about Kyrie for A LONG time and weren't taken seriously on ISH or REALGM.

That's all I'm saying.

You're either on the ship or not on the ship.

Furthermore, I troll as often as you do, but sometimes I'm dead ass.

Lol. Better playmaker

That's all John Wall stans are clinging to. After seeing last season playoffs, it's not hard to convince me to take Beal over Wall at this point.

Good for them, I don't care if I got a ticket on the bandwagon or not, it's just plain disrespectful at this point.

Didnít think I was worth a thread
Last year Wall was just definitely better.
This year Kyrie has clearly been better as Wall is having an off/injured start.

And before my fanboy cries about an agenda, why did the GMs say the same thing?

They're very different players. At his best, Kyrie is an unstoppable scorer. At his best, Wall is an unstoppable playmaker. Don't mistake Wall being in a bit of a slump with Kyrie being a better player. Let's see how things shake up 20 games from now. Kyrie is playing great so far, but I can't really trust him yet.

Game 7 in the finals, game comes down to 1 shot, would you trust him then?

What the hell? How else would you define playmaker in the NBA? It's when you make plays for your teammates, aka assists. Wall's easily a better playmaker than Kyrie and always has been.

MJ wouldn't **** up a first half the way Kyrie definitely can. Kyrie's problem in the past was his tendency to contribute more than any other teammate to the conditions in which the team need to be bailed out by his own heroics. I don't respect clutch play when he caused the need for it, as he did many times on Cleveland.

I'll take McConnell's grittiness and defensive intensity over both TBH.
