Wall is a better player than Kyrie because he's a far better defender, facilitator, rebounder and team leader. The scoring gap between wall and Kyrie isn't THAT huge. As much of a non shooter that wall is...he's been above 35% from 3 in 2 of his last 3 years....on about 4 attempts a game. Kyrie has a better jumper...is a more creative ball handler...and can break down the defense and can play off the ball better...which is beneficial on certain teams. Wall is also more durable.

I also believe Wall can play off the ball too. Kinda like Dwade Miami era a lil bit. Not that he will ever have to...or will...but he's capable of being that. The slashing instincts are there. I don't think Kyrie can play the role Wall has. And we've seen that when you ask Kyrie to be your PG and turn a franchise around....the end result is two straight back to back picks.

Wall was handed the keys to a possibly worse sht-show in DC. Playing with a starting lineup of Javale, Swaggy P, Jordan Crawdord, Andre Blatche laugh.gif. He was able to turn that eventually into two straight playoff appearances and playoff series wins.

Wall as your first option with average talent around him = 48-50 win team...and a series win...possible conference finals appearance.

Kyrie as your 1st option with average talent around him = 35-38 win team....low playoff seed....or lottery bound.

I think both of them are better as second options though. And two good young PG's...but I think Wall is better.

Funny story about Ish. When he was in college, he was not really on the NBA Radar. There was a night on ESPN where NBA Commentators did a college game and vice versa. JVG and Mark Jackson did a Wake Forest game and Ish did his thing. They went on to talk about how he will definitely be in the league in the future.

 

At the time he wasn't on the NBA Radar and Jonathan Givony of Draft Express went on Twitter talking about how JVG and Mark Jackson didn't know WHAT they hell they were talking about.

 

Now look at him.........

interesting...

You've had a fixation with me over the past few days. Can't have a conversation without you jumping in on the opposing side. Ha ha ha

You're wrong a lot.

Jahlil has been balling lately though 4real. Kinda seems like the NBA world wants him to fail....to drive home the death of a big man narrative. 18 & 8...as a rookie is nothing to sneeze at.

was killing in the 1st half then Philly started to come back with him on the bench

guess Brett Brown just stuck with the lineup that was hot

An when I'm right folks are nowhere to be found. Wizards over Raptors or Bulls. How's Howard doing in H-Town? So on and so forth. Your gonna be wrong when your not afraid to speak your mind. I put my thoughts out there. Not afraid to be wrong. Just like West vs East. People only want to call me out now that the West has come up. Before they had nothing to say. Convenient opinions are weak opinions.

Knicks win after pissing away an 18 point lead and going to double OT against the 76ers
