When he lights it up at times in the fourth its fun as hell to watch and people get excited. So what, big deal. But when people get on here and complain about him suddenly being highly overrated its just more knee jerk, moronic, reactionary posting. Heat are great not just because of their big three. They have a great team chemistry right now and loads of confidence. Heat have been hanging in there and winning most games with major players sitting. They were right in it with NYK until final minutes last week with both James and Wade out. It's nothing to be ashamed of losing to the shorthanded heat when you are already a sub-par, non-play off team. Irving didn't have his greatest game last night, but he is a great player and will be one of the faces of the league.
When you say he is a Top 5 PG, that's why he is overrated. And that's a disrespect to other Point Guards playing the game.
Rose, Parker, Westbrook, Rondo, Deron, are all names that came to my mind who are in another tier ahead of him.
