Kyrie Irving

Two numbers for ya: 55, 57. Kyrie Irving is the only player in the NBA to have two games in which he scored 50 points or more. He is a field mouse. He is a dolphin. He is a wildebeest out there. Though he’s been overshadowed by the dominant play of LeBron James for much of the season, he remains the most electric finisher at the basket and best ball handler in the league. Players, coaches, and announcers all adore him. So too, does Cleveland. This one’s a no-brainer for the Scene staff too. (LeBron’s probably technically the best, but Kyrie’s performances this year have been truly one of a kind).
