Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are having an indirect competition this season. So far Irving’s team has a better record, but LeBron is having the better individual season. On Monday night both players showed off another side of the game – not getting called for a blatant travel. First, we have LeBron’s hop, skip and a jump travel against the Philadelphia 76ers.
That’s a pretty egregious no-call. He might actually still be moving.
Later in the evening Kyrie treated fans in Detroit to a stumbling drunken fullback travel. This wasn’t as much of a travel as LeBron’s, but the fact that Kyrie drew a foul after diving headfirst into Avery Bradley’s armpit is worth bonus points.
LeBron had more steps and jumps, but Kyrie somehow looked more awkward. It’s a tough [no] call. What do you think?
