Kyrie Irving, Boston Celtics
Even though most people do acknowledge that Kyrie Irving is a star player, his true “stardom” tended to get overshadowed because of him playing alongside James for so long. That’s one of the main reasons why Irving demanded a trade from Cleveland. When healthy, Irving is a basketball savant when the ball is in his hands. His handle is as good as anyone’s in the entire NBA. He might be the most creative finisher around the hoop in the league. As evidenced in the 2016 NBA Finals, he has the proverbial “ice water” in his veins, showing no fear to hit the big shot at the most critical time. He would be absolute hell for anyone — including James — to play in a 1-on-1 situation.
