When it comes to winning NBA championships, they say there’s nothing more important than having a great point guard. We’re blessed in the modern era as we have a handful of superb point guards, but which is the best? They all possess different skills and weaknesses so it’s difficult to decide. One thing that is clear is that Cleveland Cavaliers‘ Kyrie Irving and Golden State Warriors‘ Stephen Curry are two of the best point guards around. Both are young and will dominate the discussion for years to come, but which guard is better?
The Cavaliers welcomed the Warriors to the Quicken Loans Arena and fans were in awe as they would see the two young superstars face one another. Both guards blew up last year, and this year was supposed to be the year in which they’d cement themselves as the elite NBA point guards. The game went to overtime and unfortunately the Cavs lost 108-104, but both Irving and Curry were phenomenal and gave the fans great displays to remember.
Kyire led the Cavaliers with 27 points, and he also hit the three-pointer which tied the game with seconds remaining. Curry led his team to victory, and he had 29 points to prove at this moment in time that he is the better of the guards. Although that’s obvious to everyone but Cavaliers’ fans, Kyrie could easily take his place if we was given a better complement of players to work with. Curry has a talented, strong roster, and that evidently helps him to perform on a consistent basis.
Regardless of what happens, both point guards are vital to their teams and their futures and both are up there with the best point guards in the NBA. Both will only improve, so expect to see plenty of playoff games from Irving and Curry. Maybe one day they will line up against one another in the NBA Finals, and then we can see who really is the best.
