Watch Kyrie Irving drop 40 on the Celtics (VIDEO)

Jan 23, 2013, 8:06 AM EDT

I know he missed a chunk of the season, but watch this game and tell me Kyrie Irving doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star.

Irving was the best player on the court when the Cavaliers took on the Celtics and he won Cleveland that game with a variety of shots — driving layups, pull-up midrange jumpers and long-range threes. He has it all and showed them all to Rajon Rondo and the Celtics. And he saved his best shots for the final minute of the game.

Because that’s the kind of thing All-Stars do.

Here are the people from Boston and CSNNE.com being impressed with Irving.
