    Kyrie Irving? Or, Jamal Murray?

    https://streamable.com/mv215



    Murray had a career high 48pts last night, plus he greedily took a shot before the final buzzer, to try to crack the historic 50pts mark.

    As you see in the vid, Kyrie did not appreciate Murray being greedy at Celtic's expense.

    ...


    Who was more selfish, in this instance??

    I say Jamal. It is a team sport, not a venue to pad your stats.

    Can I ask...have you all played 5-on-5 basketball in any organized leagues, before? If so, what level of skill, did you play at? By skill I mean like from middle school's basketball team thru NBA basketball team.

    I don't want to discuss your skill level either lol I just want to ask about the moment, last night, with an understanding for what kind of questions might be unfair of me to ask anyone.

    Kyrie could have hurt somebody chucking the ball like that. He shouldn't have let an average starter like Murray put 48 on his head in the first place, I think that's what bothered him more than him taking the last second shot.

    No doubt. Especially at that point in the event, when fans were leaving and had their backs to the court.

    I can see how this premise affected the commish decision to fine Kyrie $25,000 yesterday.

    an average starter
    You might can boast of some pretty high standards you have, in order to say that about him.

    Jamal is only 6'3" with his shoes off. Yes and not many players that size, shoot 53% from the non-3pt area of the court. And he scored nearly 1500pts in his 2nd season, plus avg nearly 20ppg so far this season on a winning team.

    Jamal can play for sure but he isn't a supper efficient scorer, is a weak passer for a point guard and isn't a great defender. He's got upside but he's an average-ish level starter right now. If Jamal had 18 and threw up a last second shot, Kyrie wouldn't have cared, he was just mad he got roasted for 48.
