Who's a better sidekick for LeBron James: Derrick Rose or Kyrie Irving?

The Cleveland Cavaliers added former NBA MVP Derrick Rose, pairing him with fellow NBA MVP LeBron James. Derrick Rose came cheap and will provide the extra playmaker James was left wanting for most of last season—if he still can conjure his old explosive playmaking ways. However, Kyrie Irving’s scoring game and ability to break down the defense has been a perfect fit with James. He's already helped LeBron reach three consecutive NBA Finals. What do you think? 🏀

Derrick Rose is not Kyrie Irving. For LeBron James, that's good news. 

Derrick Rose is coming off his best season since a litany of injuries derailed his potential Hall of Fame career. When Rose showed last season he could still be explosive with the ball, crossing over defenders on his way to easy finishes in the paint. Not only can he make plays, Rose is a better slasher than Irving. He also comes at a fraction of the price, allowing a little more flexibility in the front office. 

Playing with James will only make Rose better.

LeBron James can make anyone better, but there aren't many players that fit perfectly with him. Kyrie Irving is that man. 

James carries the load a lot, but Kyrie's ability to dribble, drive, score and pass takes a lot of pressure off James. When James has a bad game, Irving has the killer mentality to takeover and succeed. Not only is he a better shooter than Derrick Rose, he finishes better around the rim as well. Derrick Rose finished 55.7 percent of his field goals from 0-3 feet last season, while Irving converted 60.3 percent. Irving and James won a championship together. Derrick Rose is a nice third option at best. 

Kyrie Irving will always be the perfect fit for James.
