The admiration for Irving's offensive prowess extends beyond Udoka, with former NBA coach Mike D’Antoni also expressing awe at Irving's offensive repertoire. 

Reflecting on Irving's left-handed floater that secured a win against the Denver Nuggets, Udoka reiterated his sentiment, emphasizing Irving's unmatched offensive brilliance.

Following his stellar performance against the Rockets, Irving expressed gratitude for the compliments but steered the conversation toward his desire to be remembered as a great winner, rather than solely for his individual skills.

Irving's humility shone through as he redirected attention to honoring past NBA legends and underscored the importance of acknowledging their contributions before placing him in discussions about the most skilled players in history.

While Irving appreciates the accolades, he hopes to be remembered for his impact on and off the court, guiding future generations with his example and respecting the legacy of those who paved the way before him.
