The emergence of team ball is upon us, and how that might affect Kyrie.

Looking back at the regular season we only had 10 20 point per game scorers, the lowest in decades.

Looking at the playoffs this year, team's that have relied on iso performances struggled this postseason. Namely Melo, Durant, CP3 and now potentially Lebron. If Lebron has to score 30+ ppg for the Heat to compete, then it's going to be a quick series. Even though LBJ shoots the ball better than the aforementioned, the loss last night has displayed a consistent pattern these playoffs concerning letting 1 player get their points, and to guard everyone else.

The average NBA player's height is 6'7", so I can't help but think that the added length on the court has made the game smaller to a degree. Yet it also makes those guys that scored over 20+ ppg that much more impressive.

How does this affect Kyrie Irving? A primarily iso player on a struggling team and one of those who scored over 20ppg. Is an iso offense effective in the modern NBA? Will Mike Brown run iso after iso with Kyrie much like LBJ? Thoughts?
