I'm not sure about that. Kyrie's value in Cleveland at times was taken for granted though, and we are seeing that now. The Celtics are a really good TEAM, with a innovative coach. The Cavs always had a great player in LeBron, and a few other players who could tolerate him and then largely a bunch of dime a dozen players.
I think the thing we are finding out is that LeBron is very difficult to play with. He's very surly, uber competitve which is good on some levels, but very difficult to build sustainable winning. LeBron has never played well with a true point guard. He wants the ball in his hand too much. DWade can live that that to a certain degree due to his age. Rose is struggling and Isiah Thomas will have the same issues. YOu play with LB, you're going to stand on the wing and watch him dribble alot. Kyrie was never completely comfortable playing with LeBron. He looks very comfortable with the Celtics, who run a more fluid offense.
