Los Angeles Lakers legend and ESPN NBA analyst Ervin Magic Johnson believes Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving is becoming a superstar in this league.

Johnson and fellow ESPN analyst Jalen Rose broke down Irving's game to the details and said he's impressed with the Cavs guard's ability to penetrate through defense with ease and his knack of draining treys in succession.

Considered one of the greatest players in NBA history, Johnson called Irving an upcoming superstar with a potential to be a gold standard at the point guard position for a very long time.

Rose also labeled Irving a top-5 point guard along with the likes of Russell Westbrook, Rajon Rondo, Tony Parker and Deron Williams.

Irving, averaging 23.7 points and 5.6 assists in his second year with the Cavs, took the All-Star weekend by storm after a sensational play in the Rising Star challenge and bagging the Three-point shootout crown.

Irving capped his exploits with a solid performance in his first All-Star Game in Houston.

Irving then dropped 20 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter to spark the Cavs to a 105-100 win over the New Orleans Hornets Wednesday.
