Maggie Gray welcome Sports Illustrated senior writer Michael Rosenberg to the Gray Area Podcast to discuss his SI cover story on Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving.

In this episode, they discuss Irving as a teammate since LeBron James returned to the Cavaliers, how the coaching change has affected Irving, accepting a secondary role to James, if Irving and the Cavaliers could relapse in the Finals against the Golden State Warriors like they did against the Toronto Raptors in their two losses, who they think will win the 2016 NBA Finals, Irving eventually surpassing James and becoming the best player on the Cavaliers and much more.

Make sure to read Rosenberg's piece on Irving here or in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated, and listen below to get a behind-the-scenes look at the story.
