🏀 KYRIE IRVING / UNCLE DREW fans would love this!
Both 26-year old Kyrie Irving, and 20-year old Jayson Tatum were having a 2-dribble only 1-on-1 session during their Boston Celtics practice. The two former Duke Blue Devils were able to score on each other, but Irving appeared to have the upper hand on Tatum from what was seen in this short video of Jayson Tatum vs. Kyrie Irving.
Jayson Tatum dunked on LeBron James last season, helped lead the Boston Celtics deep into the 2017-2018 NBA playoffs, and can call Kobe Bryant his own personal Yoda. But the most exciting thing about Jayson Tatum? The kid’s just 20-year old, and he is already showing early potentials to be an All-Star player.
Despite his spectacular rookie season with the Boston Celtics, forward Jayson Tatum has remained humble and focused on improving his game. To that end, he's spent the summer learning from his elders, taking pointers from the likes of Penny Hardaway and former Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant. The Boston Celtics fans in TD Garden truly love the game of both Jayson Tatum and Kyrie Irving.
● Kyrie Irving committed to Duke University on October 22, 2009, and he played for Mike Krzyzewski during the 2010-2011 NCAA college basketball season. Kyrie Irving left Duke in spring 2011 without a college degree, but he promised his father to get his degree within 5 years. Later, Kyrie declared for 2011 NBA Draft and he was selected No.1 by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Kyrie Irving requested a trade back in July 2017 during a meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers owner, Dan Gilbert. At the time, Irving said that he wanted to play in a situation in which he could be more of a focal point and that he no longer wanted to play alongside LeBron James, sources said.
Back on August 22, 2017, the Cleveland Cavaliers have decided to send Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics in exchange for point guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and Brooklyn Nets's 2018 unprotected first-round pick, the teams announced Tuesday night. This trade gives the Cleveland Cavaliers options and insurance if LeBron James does depart in the future.
Having all of these achievements, it is hard to believe Kyrie Irving is only 26 years old, and he is still improving every year. Back on November 16, 2017, there was a claim by Kyrie Irving himself, saying that the Earth is actually flat.
● Kyrie is notably known for his role as "Uncle Drew" in the Pepsi Max commercials. An Uncle Drew movie is set for June 29, 2018, which will be produced by Lionsgate. Ever since 2011, Kyrie Irving had been playing in the Quicken Loans Arena for the past 6 years, until he came to a decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Boston Celtics back in July 2017. Back on November 16, 2017, there was a claim by Kyrie Irving himself, saying that the Earth is actually flat.
Kyrie Irving has partnered up with major brands such as Nike, PepsiCo, Foot Locker, Panini, PSD Luxury Men's Boxer Briefs, ProCamps, and Skullcandy. In December 2014, Irving had launched his Nike Kyrie 3 signature shoe collection and since then the sale of his shoes is touching new heights day by day. The launch colorway was sold out in just 3 minutes. In 2016, he got equity stakes in American company Skullcandy. This deal was a part of an endorsement deal between him and Skullcandy. This move of Kyrie looks professionally good because of Skullcandy's global headphone and earbud market expected to be worth more than $17.5 billion by 2022.
He was the cover athlete on NBA 2K18, with covers published in both his Celtics and Cavs jerseys. Irving is headed to the big screen as the star of an Uncle Drew feature film. Irving is part owner of the Uncle Drew rights, which started as a Pepsi-funded web series. Irving also recorded a song for the movie's soundtrack. The movie led to an endorsement deal for Irving with General Mills. The company put Irving and Uncle Drew on its iconic Wheaties cereal boxes.
