Except heís averaging a single double.  Last year was a fluke because that team wasnít set up to win games, it was set up to be the Westbrook show.  Curry is much better than Westbrook in my opinion.

Sorry but the fact, that only him and the Big O have done is still impressive.

It is, but clearly other players could do it if they weren't on contenders.  I mean, I think you could reasonably argue at least 3 other active players could average a triple double and it might be more, if their team situation was different.

Kyrie wasnít particularly impressive, either.  The two were a combined 7/30. Thatís why rational people donít judge players based upon one game.

Didn't triboy start a thread last year claiming he would take Damon Lillard over Curry because Lillard was a much better player? Now its Irving. Me thinks triboy doesn't like Curry.

Cmon Roy..the mask was clearly affecting his game

What was Currys excuse last night?

Eh, I think Kyrie shot 2-for-7 with the mask off, going 2-for-3 on layups and 0-for-4 on jumpers.  Itís hard to blame the mask.

The Dubs bothered Kyrie and the Celts bothered Steph. Both will be better next time.

I don't think there's any doubt that Curry is the better player right now. With that being said, he's older, on a historically great team, and has not proven he can play in any system other than one with 3 other hall of famers. The gap isn't too large for me, and as someone said earlier, if it's for a long term point guard I am probably taking Kyrie.

Kyrie is younger, has shown his ability to play successfully in two different systems, and is stronger than Curry in a few different areas.

I guess I don't see Curry's passing and D as good as Kyrie's.

Just came off a thigh contusion.

Before that, during the entire month of October, he averaged 28 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds, shooting 48%, 39% from 3PT.

I'm buying in into Kyrie, but lets be serious here.

Why is this poll so close?

Curry is better than Irving. It is not even debatable.
