Despite having acquire Luol Deng from the Chicago Bulls last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers are holding off playing with their new toy to focus not he wonder that is Kyrie Irving. Deng is lucky, as he’s going from one team with a brilliant, yet injured, superstar to a team with a brilliant non-injured superstar guard.

Irving continued to do his thing against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night as he not only tossed up a perfect alley-oop to Tristan Thompson, but he threw down a nasty reserve layup that almost became a nasty reverse dunk.


Obviously, the reverse jam always wins the argument, but this reverse layup proves that he’s a stud at what he does, and that’s ball — consistently. Deng has seen what Derrick Rose can do with the Bulls, but Irving channeled that magic on Deng’s first official night as a Cavalier and more than a few eyes lit up at the sight of the young star doing his thing.
