    Look around the league and tell me how many starting PG's aren't "injury prone"?

    You say that like it makes it ok. He also still struggles to actually play proper team basketball, and you know, actually run the point.

    He's never played a full season, this season at 64 games being his highest. He also doesn't get his injuries doing explosive things, which is a big reason guys get injured. Kyrie just seems soft. I wonder about his strength and conditioning, and if he is actually injury prone and those are question marks, it could mean a guy you can never really count on long-term.

    I'm no Kyrie fan either, and yeah, Irving has had more injuries than most but you're answer reeks of bs. How many PG's can you count on long term not to have mulitple injuries? PG and injury prone are almost synonymous. Wasn't that the tag a lot of us put on Lowry? Look at the abuse he takes and it's almost a miracle Kyle hasn't missed more time than he has.

    Same things were said about John Wall, and now look at him; he's back in the conversation as one of the best PGs.
    I think Kyrie will be juuust fine.

    Difference being that Wall always played defense and always got his teammates involved.

    Kyrie's injury and Cavs gelling process early in the season, D Rose's rust early in the season and now Bradley Beal broken wrist missing 8 weeks, Raps should establish a strong start to the season and secure a top seed. its all working in our favor.

    You can say the same about Lowry for that matter. He had an attitude problem coming into the league but his injuries didn't help.

    That being said, I'm not a big Irving guy. His defense is atrocious.

    Started out as a thread about trading for him. Now it's an injury tracker apparently.
