Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott believes that Kyrie Irving has a chance to become the NBA’s best floor general. However, the prequisiste is for him to pick up the phone according to Bryon Scott. Scott is pushing Irving to connect with CP3 next summer, figuring it could only help push Kyrie’s game to the next level if he worked out with Paul.
Chris Paul is held as the gold standard in this league when it comes to the point guard position. His work ethic, skill, the way he’s so proficient at everything. But even then, I really believe Kyrie has a chance to be the best point guard in the league in the next, really, four to five years. Do you agree?
Byron Scott, head coach, Cleveland Cavaliers: “I think it is. I think one thing that he needs to do this summer is call Chris Paul and work out with him.”
Scott: “Because then he would learn from the best. I know he’s friends with LeBron James. I know Kevin Durant. He needs to work out with some of these guys, some of the biggest stars in this league, and see how they work. I think he’d have a different perspective on what this is all about. I think it would help him tremendously. But I do think in the next 3-4 years … He and I have talked about this. He has the possibility of being the best point guard in this league.”
