Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

Give me Irving. Younger and is already way more polished as a scorer and a passer than Wall.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

Irving and it's not really close. I'd say best case scenario for Wall is that he turns into a Rondo clone while Irving wil probably be at Chris Paul's level very soon.

I agree, Wall's knee and poor jump shooting curb my enthusiasm

Irving. It's a shame about the situation Wall got drafted into because that probably stunted his progress right from the start, but Irving is a better player now and in the future. Probably the future best PG in the league.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

I want to see a full season of John Wall healthy and playing with veterans, it's tough to take anything away from the last two years.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

I do think Wall is flying under the radar right now due to the injury - but no, he isn't Kyrie Irving

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

If Wall was 100% healthy and didn't miss this time, it would be a lot more interesting.

The comparisons to Paul, and then talking down on Wall are a little ridiculous. Its not like either is leading their team anywhere at the moment. I like Kyrie, but saying he'll be Chris Paul in a few years is pretty high hopes.

And Wall is nothing like Rondo in my books. I can't see any year where John Wall is dominating the league in assists.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

I think Wall could be Derrick Rose with better passing in a perfect situation, but after a few years he hasn't given anybody any reason to think he can reach that level.

Irving is the better player, and I think he'll have the better career when it's all said and done as well.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

Honestly Kyrie needs to work on his game a bit. There are some holes he needs to be addressing. However when you look at the roster he's playing with, it's easy to make excuses for the lack of wins. That team seems to be content to lose for the immediate future and they are going to with their current roster. Irving is probably a top five or top ten point guard right now, but it's hard to say how much the roster impacts him.

Wall has yet to prove that he can address any of his weaknesses as a player. Probably came into the league with legitimate superstar potential, but he has really done nothing to make us think that he'll get to that level. Up to this point he's shown more of the flaws than he's shown actual ability as a player. I would say that the current Wizards roster is pretty decent if healthy. Nothing you'd want to challenge the Dynasty Bulls with, but they should win some games in the East and Wall needs to start showing us that he can be a part of that.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

Can you extrapolate on the weaknesses of both players?

I don't know them very well. I curious.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

Wall reminds me of Marbury, but I admittedly don't see him play much.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

Irving's obviously had the more successful NBA career so far and has improved more than Wall has. I really believe that being on the Wizards, along with injuries, has set Wall back significantly. If he gets with some vets who know how to play, stays injury-free, and really works on that jump shot, I still think he could be the best PG in the league in a few years. But those are all huge ifs and at present it's likely that Irving has a better career.

Re: Kyrie Irving Vs John Wall

Even if Wall was healthy, it would still be Irving. The scoring ability of Irving this early into his career has been amazing so far. Those who are saying he might be the next Chris Paul are a little over their heads, because don't forget Paul is great at getting his teammates involved, something I'm not fully convinced Irving is great at doing yet, but Irving's scoring ability is outstanding and he will only improve.
