When former Blue Devil Kyrie Irving left LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, he said he wanted to be The Guy.

Presumably he meant The Guy hitting the winning shot as he did for Cleveland against Golden State and not The Guy who gets all the questions after falling short as Boston did against Milwaukee.

Well he’s that guy now and the questions are cranking and some of them are pretty intense. Dealing with failure is an important part of leadership too.
