LeBron James was back and getting all the hype — he knocked down his first shot and looked good. Although he only played the first half.
Kyrie Irving looked awesome in that game.
Take that with a handful of salt, it was a preseason game against Maccabi Tel Aviv. You don’t want to read too much into it.
But there have been guys who have gained confidence and gotten a real bounce out of the World Cup, and Irving was just the MVP of the USA’s gold medal effort there. He could have a monster year.
At least he got it off to a good start.
