Kyrie Irving has some of the best handles ever, so it stands to reason he’d be the point guard on any team he plays for. However, James Harden has been a great facilitator for the Nets ever since he arrived in Brooklyn — all the while, Irving has continued be Brooklyn’s top or No. 2 scorer nightly.

It turns out, the two have both been thinking about this very subject: who is Brooklyn’s point guard?

Irving revealed to reporters over Zoom after Saturday’s 134-117 win over the Golden State Warriors that the two figured out what they want to do moving forward.

“I feel like he’s just been doing a great job of just managing the point guard role,” Irving said. “We established that maybe four days ago now — I just looked at him and I said, ‘You’re the point guard, and I’m going to play shooting guard.’ That was as simple as that.

“So, he’s been taking control of the responsibilities and doing an incredible job. It just makes my job to just go out and play free and just make plays. So, it’s a luxury.”

Harden spoke on the matter after Irving broke the news:

“I came to this team know they have two special scorers on this team. Obviously, I’ll score when I need to. But, as long I’m getting everybody involved and Kyrie is getting the shots that he wants, KD is getting the shots that he wants, it’s pretty efficient.”
