With little surprise Kyrie Irving took home 81% of the 786 votes in the poll to defeat Andre Miller and Mo Williams in Fear the Sword's fan voting to determine who has been the best point guard for the Cavs since 2000.

While Irving just suffered a broken hand he will be healed up in time as he is expected to take the Cavaliers back into the hunt for playoff positioning in the 2012-2013 season.

Irving made waves this summer, as Conrad wrote about earlier, for blowing up while dominating for the USA Select Team.

Irving is truly a humble superstar and the Cavaliers were quite fortunate to secure his rights last summer as he's surely one of the highest valued assets currently in the NBA. It is expected that many great playoff moments will happen in Quicken Loans Arena during Kyrie's days in Cleveland.

Kyrie Irving, 2011-present: The reigning NBA Rookie of the Year has gained large acclaim for his Uncle Drew video, USA basketball heroics this summer and for his stellar first NBA season despite such a limited college career. He played 51 games last winter and averaged 18.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 5.4 assists in about 31 minutes per game. His shooting slash was .469/.399/.872 which is one of the best in the league for a guard. While he's still working on becoming an elite defender he is widely viewed as one of the next future superstars in the NBA. It is expected that Irving will be heard from quite a bit in the future. His rookie PER was 21.4.
