For all the accomplishments and amazing games Kyrie Irving has given the Cleveland fan base, he’s never recorded a triple-double. That changed Friday night with the Jazz in town. Irving had 21 points 12 assists and 10 rebounds in the easy 99-79 win. Maybe it was Irving’s night that drove a fan to run out onto the court just for a chance to say whassup before police tackled him. Unlike the triple-double this has unfortunately happened before with Kyrie. Read More »

Kyrie Irving Kicks It With “Long-Time” Pal Pete Holmes

Pete Holmes, Kyrie Irving

Comedian Pete Holmes has a late night TBS show for those unfamiliar with his nonsequitur schtick. But he’s also got a penchant for getting the goofy from NBA players during glorious interviews. He interviewed James Harden back before the season started, and recently he sat down with his buddy Kyrie Irving. The pair are long-time friends, supposedly, so it might get even more off-the-cuff than usual with Holmes. Read More »

Why Having A Scoring Point Guard Is Super Overrated

The point guard position is commonly referred to as the player who initiates the team’s offense, the floor general. In recent history, the NBA’s infrastructure has undergone a makeover. Now, it’s all about a lightning quick pace and guards that can score the ball at will. While this has produced some exciting and flashy play, there is one critical argument that needs to be discussed with these point guards. Read More »

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has become the fulcrum by which the Cavaliers swing. When he’s feeling it, they can look pretty good — as witnessed by last night’s 114-104 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder (their third loss in a row). But he’s also at the center of the storm surrounding his future in the summer of 2015, more than a year off. Cleveland’s urgency to sign him to an extension becomes more pronounced every time he shows fans a crossover like the one he pulled on Thabo Sefolosha on Wednesday night. Read More »

Kyrie Irving was showing off his handle again Tuesday night. The Raptors were in town, holding down the No. 3 seed in the East, with Cleveland at the No. 10 spot, barely ahead of the woeful Knicks in the Eastern Conference. So Cleveland’s 99-93 loss was a big blow so late in the season against a Conference rival. With all the disappointment in Cleveland this season, at least we get to watch Kyrie slice and dice defenses like he did during one play after the jump. Read More »

With the release of a new series with Powerade entitled “Streetball Court,” LeBron James is part of a cast of elite basketball players that have appeared in commercials under a different alias. In the series, James stars as Judge James, enforcing the rules of basketball to ballers that simply do not get the ethics of streetball; “Thou shall drink their own drink” or call “the ticky-tacky foul”.

Kyrie Irving’s 20 Best Crossovers

When one sees Kyrie Irving play, it’s not your typical NBA point guard. That wasn’t more evident that on Sunday night when Kyrie Irving went Uncle Drew on everyone and treated the All-Star Game like his playground. When Kyrie took Dwight Howard out on his island, we all knew what was about to go down as we grabbed our popcorn and watched the show. Kyrie even showed Steph Curry that he isn’t on his level, just as Reggie Miller was trying to decipher who had the better handles between the two. Read More »

Everyone talks about his handles–and they’re not wrong to, considering he might have the league’s most devastating moves off the dribble–but it’s really his patented ball spins that set him apart.

Kyrie Irving Wins MVP Of 2014 NBA All-Star Game

Even Kyrie Irving needs help sometimes. After the East stole a 163-155 win over the West in this year’s NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans, the 21-year-old with two All-Star Games selections, one Rookie of the Year, one Three-Point Shootout win, one Rising Stars Challenge MVP and now one All-Star Game MVP wasn’t acting like he’d been here before. (Even though he could’ve.) He wasn’t campaigning for better Cleveland teammates. (Even though he should’ve.) He just needed a little help with the proper All-Star MVP pose. Read More »
