Irving has had a tremendous postseason, averaging 24.3 points, 5.1 assists and 2.5 rebounds a game.
The biggest question for Irving over the next couple of weeks will be this: can he defend at a high enough level to stay on the floor against the Warriors?
The Finals are set to start Thursday night at 9 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
