Wearing that No. 23 comes with great responsibility. Word to Uncle Ben. Well, sorta. During Thursday's Team USA scrimmage, Kyrie Irving, sporting the legendary number for the white team, scored 23 points with 7 assists. But, the main thing wasn't that he was the game's leading scorer, it was how he amassed those points and dished those dimes. With his smooth handle and quick feet, Irving was able to breeze past his defenders at ease and finish when he got to the basket even with contact. It was a thing of beauty.
We're not Team USA chairman Jerry Colangelo but we definitely think Kyrie deserves a spot on the roster after Thursday's showing.
