Just one day removed from his historic 55 point performance against the Portland Trail-Blazers, Kyrie Irving has been named to the 2015 Eastern Conference All-Star team. Irving’s season has been nothing short of spectacular to this point, as he is averaging 22.1 PPG, 5.2 APG, and 1.6 SPG in 44 games. Cavs fans would’ve been devastated if Irving wasn’t selected for this year’s competition, especially after his monster performance last night. Luckily, Irving made the cut, and he will join teammate LeBron James in the 2015 All-Star Game, something we hope will become old news in a few years’ time.
Irving won the All-Star Game MVP in last year’s contest, so it was only fitting to see him selected again. In last year’s game, Irving scored 31 points to go along with 14 assists, giving the East a 163-155 victory over the West. We also were able to see Irving and James play together for the first time, something Cavs fans were dreaming of witnessing for a long time. It will be great to see those two playing in the All-Star Game again, but this time they will both be representing the Cavaliers. We all knew James was going to make it, but it wouldn’t have been the same without his running mate, Kyrie Irving. Those two are going to put on a show for all to see, and Cleveland fans all around will be ready to watch.
