08:08 AM ET 09.24 | Step right up, Kyrie Irving. [Cleveland] thought about adding another veteran for leadership purposes, but decided against it. They had Anthony Parker and Antawn Jamison in those roles last season. The Cavs believe veteran coach Byron Scott is strong enough to fill part of that role, and they also want Daniel Gibson and Anderson Varejao to add leadership. ... The Cavs know Varejao is not a vocal leader, but his play is so inspired that teammates are forced to defend and rebound with more passion. ... The Cavs believe Kyrie Irving can soon become the team leader, despite being only 20. His personality and talent at point guard makes it easy for other players to follow him.

To be determined.....He certainly seems to be able to score late- which is hugeBut he doesn't seem to want to pass much...Not many big time scoring pgs have an rings since isiah

True. He still needs other guys around him. They have some ok young talent on the team but they are going to need some OKC draft luck in growing the team and talent because free agents (big time ones) won't be going to Cleveland.
