Kyrie Irving Blew Everyone's Minds At The Olympic Basketball Practice
The Cavs star is on the US Select team, which means he's there to give the Olympic team some competition. He was able to do that and then some.
My name is Jack Moore, and I'm crazy in love with Kyrie Irving. Uncle Drew took what was left of my heart after LeBron James did the dougie all over it, and with every crossover, slowly stitched it back together. And now, thanks to his time with the Team USA Select Team and his aforementioned hit commercial, the media and NBA fans nationwide are coming around to what Cavs fans saw all year. This guy is really fucking good.
Take, for example, exhibit A from this weekend's US National Team training session. Remember Irving isn't on the Olympic team, he's on the team that's there to scrimmage the Olympic team.
Step One: Cross Up Kobe
Step Two: Cross Up Kevin Durant
Step Three: Spin Past James Harden
Step Four: WHAAAAAAAAA?
If that wasn't enough, he also made Russ Westbrook look dumb. And got his shot in the post with no problem against Melo.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the NBA's next superstar: Kyrie "Uncle Drew" Irving.
