It's gotta be him.
He's better than all the East PGs for sure. And everyone else is more or less building their resume.
If anything this shows the talent gulf from LeBron to the next best.
As time passes I am seeing just how much of an outlier LeBron is. The Cavs couldn't tank with early LeBron. They went to barely missing the playoffs in Season 2, to back-to-back 50 win seasons, to NBA Finals in Season 4. That's absurd, especially when you consider Benedict Boozer running off to ruin his career on hamster-wheel teams and putting on Lego hair pieces.
Cavs couldn't hit on any Fagents either.
So I can't hold Kyrie to that standard. Only LeBron can do it like that.
On the matter of being an elite NBA talent? It's easy to see where he is in THE EAST.
