I really like the Pelicans tonite. Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson are becoming a force. Jrue Holiday and Ish Smith can light up the scoreboard. Realistically too Pelicans is the better team at home or on the road.
Will have to better handle contact at the next level
Summary: Irving has been as good as advertised since arriving at Duke in a similar way to what John Wall brought to the floor at Kentucky last season. Offensively, he can do it all and shows a tremendous skill set for a young point guard. He should be a one-and-done as he will be one of the top picks in the 2011 NBA Draft.
Player Comparison: Chris Paul. Irving really has a mixture of attributes of a lot of NBA point guards but can probably closely be compared to Chris Paul. Irving is further along as a scorer at this point of his career but is not the distributor that Paul has become. Either way, this high of a comparison backs up my thought that Irving can be an elite NBA point guard like CP3.
