Default Kyrie Irving a bust?

Remember when all the threads predicting him to be a bust, saying he wasn't NBA ready? Well?

I think it's time to evaluate him so far.

Bust? Yes or no?

He can't play a lick of defense and he's a pass first point guard.

Probably because he hasn't really made anyone better at any level which is what PG do. But no one knew he was going to be this good at scoring.

He's a bust based on my expectations. I expected a fiery competitor who was going to contribute to a winning culture and benefit the Cavs franchise in the long run. I was wrong about the guy. He's definitely a bust at this point.

Number one quality seen in all draft busts. The ability to pass while scoring 24 points per game. Cavs have to be kicking themselves for not drafting Derrick Williams.

if the team that picks you number 1 still tanks 2 years in a row after the draft it shows that they dont trust you to carry the team to the playoffs let alone a championship. bust confirmed.

Is this thread for real? Nice timing btw, just after Kyrie led his Varejao-less team to a victory against OKC...

Even if we say he is a bust, I want those who support this opinion to mention 1 or 2 players from the 2011 Draft who are currently better than Irving.
