Scott Won’t Make Rose/Irving Comparison
Cavaliers coach Byron Scott refused to compare Cavs rookie point guard Kyrie Irving to Chicago point guard and reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose at the same stage of his career.
“I didn’t get a chance to see Derrick Rose on an everyday basis,” Scott said of Rose, who has missed the Bulls’ past two games with a toe injury. “I can’t make the comparison.
Scott pointed out that Rose played a full season at the University of Memphis, whereas Irving played just 11 games at Duke. But Scott loves where his point guard is right now.
