Default Who's better - Damian Lillard or Kyrie Irving

I think Lillard is better than Irving. They are both amazing shot makers but I consider Lillard a better playmaker and a better defender. Do you all agree?

Lillard led a team that was supposed to be a bottom feeder to the playoffs...I'll go with him. As I've said before...Kyrie isn't even a top 5 pg in the league.

Millard just took a team, that had no business of even being in the PO's, to the 2nd round in the WC.

Lets not forget that series winning buzzer beater against the Rockets in '14 as well. In his 2nd season.

Lillard for now. If the Finals are any indication though, Kyrie might make huge strides next season. TBF, playing with LeBron makes things infinitely easier for him.

Right now, Lillard.

Lillard is better as the man.
Kyrie is better as a sidekick.

Kyrie by a decent margin for me, although I do love Dame.

This. Lillard took a s.hit team to the second round. I would rather have him as the #1 guy. But Irving as a 2nd option with LeBron is a problem for the league.

Always thought Lillard was overrated. Strikes me much like a Bosh or Aldridge type in that he is the man on an average team, but anywhere else he'd be a 2nd or 3rd option.

Kyrie is the far more dynamic and natural basketball talent for me.

Lilliard played with better offensive impact against Warriors and Kyrie played better defence against them .
