Here’s a Pretty Awesome Mix of Kyrie Irving’s Highlights This Season

Can we all take a minute to be thankful for those who make these Youtube clips? This must have taken, like, 10 hours to put together, right? I know these clips have only existed for like eight years — max — but I really can’t imagine what my life would be like without them.

Irving is the best NBA player that you’ve heard of, but didn’t quite realize that he might actually be one of the league’s 10 best because football just ended. (Though perhaps that’s not you, just me.) He’s averaging 23.9 points and 5.4 assists per game. His 23.02 PER is 13th-best in the NBA (insider subscription required) and 30.1 usage percentage ranks him 4th, just ahead of LeBron James and Kevin Durant. As a quick reminder, Irving is 20 years old and in his second season in the league. What happens if LeBron goes back to Cleveland and Irving stays? Would there be a good reason to have a season?
