CLEVELAND (AP) -- The last teenage sensation to play for the Cavaliers took them to brink of a championship and then broke a city's heart. Kyrie Irving may be the one to heal it.
Less than a month into his NBA career, Irving is not only proving to be worthy of the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, but the point guard has exuded a fearlessness and confidence rarely seen in such a young player. Irving has averaged 21.8 points and 5.2 assists in his last six games and has the Cavs off to a surprising 6-7 start.
And at 19 years old, he's only going to get better.
Cavs coach Byron Scott, who played with Magic Johnson and coached Chris Paul and Jason Kidd, believes Irving is "a special" player.
