Damian Lillard publicly admits he believes Kyrie Irving has the most visually stunning game of any player in the history of basketball.
Kyrie Irving is one of the most recognizable names in the world of basketball right now. Whether it is down to his skill on the court, or his antics off it, the player is almost always in the news.
Recently, fellow NBA star Damian Lillard came out with a massive compliment for Irving on his Instagram. And while the comment could potentially spark a debate in the NBA community, we must say, we are inclined to agree with the Blazers’ point guard.
Damian Lillard loves watching Kyrie Irving play
Kyrie Irving’s game is undeniably a work of art – so much so, that ESPN analyst Stephen. A. Smith once said the Nets star is not a basketball player, but an artist instead.
His repertoire of handles and overall scoring abilities make him a scintillating show for the fans. Let’s just say, when it’s his night, it is very likely a player will find himself flat on the floor.
Fans of the NBA have seen the brilliance of Uncle Drew for years now. So, it didn’t surprise too many people when Damian Lillard said Kyrie Irving has the “Most beautiful game in history”.

Now, while it may not have surprised too many, this isn’t to say that there will be absolutely no debate on the topic. In fact, we are almost sure that absolutely will be the case. The names of Stephen Curry, Jamal Crawford, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan could just show up in this conversation.
But while many may want to argue otherwise, in our opinion, Kyrie Irving does indeed have the most beautiful game in the history of the NBA.
