The Fresh Prince stay styling on fools. Vasquez is a lengthy defender, and so is Aminu, and neither stood a chance. Dude is too raw.

No, his game has much more impact than the likes of Love and Ellis (the person that first comes up whenever "empty stats" is mentioned, does nothing to make his teammates better) and is a top 10 player this year. It's hard to win when the team's second best player has a limited offensive game and is out half the year on average, and the third best player is a rookie volume scorer. His biggest flaw is his defense so far.

Empty stats like leading the league in clutch scoring and game winning shots as a 20 year old, oh yeah he lead the league in that same category as a 19 year old last year as well

He continues to impress. I'd love to see him play with a legit P&R/P&P power-forward.

Kyrie is 6-1.75 w/o shoes and closer to 190-200 - so your right Kyrie is a bit bigger - has average height, and he isn't skinny he's got an "NBA body" that can absorb some contact
I shook his hand and he's taller and bigger than me, and you just described me.

Kyrie actually has very nice size for a PG. His "in shoes" height at the combine was 6-foot-3.5, which is the stat I always looked at, considering you play basketball in shoes... and it is also generally the number the NBA uses for their official player heights.

To put it in perspective, Deron Williams was 6-foot-2.75 in shoes at the combine and size was never considered an issue with him.

As a matter of fact, I'm not willing to go through each starting PG in the league, but I'm betting 6'3.5" is pretty high in the league for that position.

For some reason, Kyrie has a reputation for being a smallish point guard. In fact, it is exactly the opposite. And, he uses those extra inches, too. He is good in the post and gets great elevation on his jumpshot.
