That .60 makes all the difference, I guess? I like Jrue Holiday and he has had a great season. Saying Kyrie Irving has no argument over him in the starting lineup is dumb.

Kyrie Irving
35.6 minutes
24.0 points on 47% FG, 41% 3PT, 85% FT
5.4 assists
3.5 rebounds
1.8 steals
3.5 turnovers
Team Record: 14-34

Jrue Holiday
38.4 minutes
19.4 points on 46% FG, 35% 3PT, 78% FT
8.9 assists
4.2 rebounds
1.5 steals
4.1 turnovers
Team Record: 21-26


The Sixers aren't exactly tearing it up, guys.
It's worth noting that for the sake of comparison, Kyrie's team record is actually 12-25 in the games he played - 1.3 wins every 4 games, with a difference of .46.

The East has all these small name all stars compared to the West.

And the post that I'm responding to...did you actually read it?

"He's absolutely had the best season of the 3." and "I said Irving is having the better season."

That's what he quoted. Show me the contradiction.

That's not the timeline of your posts, don't omit the first one.

You said he's[Holiday] easily better than both[the aforementioned Bosh and Irving], the reaction was a shrugging smiley with a bolded "easily". Your response was

He's absolutely had the best season of the 3. He brings something every night. If easily is not a good word, I could change it to definitely. But he's been better.

No mention of Irving here. No change in the subject[Holiday] from your first post to this post, so "he" refers to Holiday obviously. This not like an argument with a bitch where you can backpedal, saying something was understood wrong. The posts are still here. Instead of calling everyone stupid you could admit a mistake.

Either Jrue Holiday is being underrated or Kyrie Irving is being underrated. Haven't figured out which is which yet.

Irving and underrated shouldn't be put in the same sentence. Everyone
rates him and it's well deserved.

Holiday is definitely underrated.

I've already explained it tho. I already cleared up what I thought. I think it should have been clear, given the context, but I went back and explained. Yet people are still going on about it. Even if people misunderstood, it makes sense, given the context.

Kyrie is more deserving, but he should go with Bosh, unless he wants to piss him off the rest of the season.

Fair point.

I said the first couple months of the season that the Cavs' record was much lower than it should be because the NBA absolutely crushed them with the early season schedule. At one point, they had played something like 11 away games to 5 home and that included a long West Coast trip to start the year.

I'm not saying this is a playoff team, but I also don't think it is the amongst the very worst in the league. What has happened since their schedule has begun to even out shows I may have been right. Finally, for the first time all season, they've actually had a grouping of games at home (4-of-6) and the Cavs are 5-2 in the last seven. That isn't just a coincidence.

And, the Cavs play the Bobcats at home tomorrow night, so it could very well be 6-2 in their last eight.

I know schedules are rarely talked about in the NBA, because they should all end up evening out, but they don't start the season anywhere close to even. Some teams play their toughest stretches to start the year, some have their easiest.

The Cavs have played 28 road games and 21 at home, which is the most road games in the NBA. The Sixers have played just 21 on the road and 26 at home, which is the least amount of road games in the NBA.
