Kyrie Irving Nominated For Kia Player of the Month, But Should He Win?

David Richard- USA TODAY Sports

It’s clear to the entire NBA┬ájust how important Kyrie Irving is to the Cleveland Cavaliers and their franchise. The young, fan favorite point guard is adored and arguably one of the best point guards in the league. He has a lot of improving to do, but when he is playing his best, other teams find it impossible to stop him. Although he has had a season of mixed performances, his play in December was outstanding and that has led to him being nominated for the Kia Player of the Month award.

Irving led all point guards in scoring in December and was a key reason the Cavaliers were finally able to show some promise in some of their games, taking a few to overtime. Although they have lost a lot still, Kyrie has improved his team and put them on his back when tough times have occurred. That’s often the sign of the elite players, and Kyrie deserves this recognition for his recent form, although more consistency would help the Cavaliers turn their season around.

Kyrie Irving is currently averaging 22.2 points, 6.1 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game. These statistics increased through his impressive games in December, and the Cavaliers are hoping this Kyrie is here to stay, once he is back from his sore knee that had the Cavaliers worried for a few days.

Irving is healthy, in form and gaining experience, and once he finds the consistency of the NBA’s elite players, the Cavaliers will be on the rise. He should win the Kia Player of the Month award, and it’ll likely be the first of many.
