I'm going to warn you before you go any deeper into this post: This will be one of the dumbest things you've ever seen.
However, watching Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving carve up the Oklahoma City Thunder in the fourth quarter of a 115-110 victory Saturday night inspired me. Whenever Irving gets his defender alone on an island, it's often bad news for the man stuck defending one of the best fourth-quarter players in the NBA.
Whether he's isolating against Russell Westbrook, or running a pick-and-roll to get picked up by Serge Ibaka or Kendrick Perkins, Irving just knows how to put his defenders on their heels. They're deserted on an island without anybody sending help in time to prevent their demise.
Irving had 13 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter Saturday night with all 13 coming in the final 2:51. The top four scorers in the fourth quarter this season are Kevin Durant (8.8 points in 9.7 minutes), Kobe Bryant (8.0 points in 8.7 minutes), Carmelo Anthony (7.3 points in 9.3 minutes) and Irving (6.8 points in 7.3 minutes). He's quickly becoming the most dangerous player in the NBA in fourth quarters because he's always the one bringing the ball up the court for his team.
And with that, I present to you, "Kyrie Irving puts you on an island ... "
