There are a lot of definitons of SS as the OP wrote.I'll try to make mine;If noone can stop you from scoring efficiently when the game is on the line, you are a superstar.
When you start up NBA live 18 for the first time, it's an allstar type game featuring LeBron, kahwi, Durant, curry, Davis, harden, George, Westbrook, Greek freak and kyrie. That's their top 10 and I agree. So to me, he's a superstar because he's a top 10 player.

SBNation clearly says NOPE but has Lillard as Next so take it with a grain of salt.The other joke is that Draymond is considered a superstar and listed as "outlier" (hinting he's Top-10 to Top-15 in entire league). I remember even this year ESPN and SI both listed Draymond Green at #10 in their NBA player rankings.
Kyrie is absolutely a Superstar in my view. He has put up Superstar performances on the biggest stage many times throughout his career. He is also demonstrating an ability to adapt to a difficult system at a quick rate. His chemistry with Horford is amazing to see at such an early stage. Kyrie is making his teammates better, contributing on both ends of the floor, and comino up with big shots when we need it most.
Kyrie is a star not a superstar. A superstar is top 5 in MVP voting year after year.

For Kyrie to be a superstar, like 30 other players would be considered superstars. At that point, what's the point of using the term? It's then synonymous with "star". But whatever, I'm fine calling IT, D. Lillard, etc. superstars. I'm biased, though, as I like how they present themselves as people, too.
