“I definitely start off with KD (Kevin Durant). Definitely put Paul George in there,” Irving said. “Hopefully Kobe (Bryant) would want to do it if he has some time in his schedule. And then I would have to go with a big like DeAndre Jordan or DeMarcus Cousins.”
What immediately stands out is the fact that Irving left ex-teammate and Cavs superstar forward LeBron James off his 2K eLeague team, even though James was recently ranked by ESPN as the NBA’s top player for the seventh consecutive season and is widely regarded as the greatest player in the game today.
