Kyrie Irving, also known as Uncle Drew, might have the best handle in the NBA. You’ve seen him drop 17 points in the 4th quarter to win a game; carve up the Celtics in the final seconds and win the NBA rookie of the year award. Irving turned 20 in March, and already is one of the NBA’s best point guards. After CP3, Deron, Rondo, Tony Parker and Russell Westbrook, is Irving already No. 6?
Irving made an appearance at the USA Basketball practice over the weekend and destroyed ankles as well as put everybody on spin cycle. Enjoy these 12 seconds and keep this in mind – Irving should be a lock to start a point guard on the next Olympic team.
Perhaps Irving will do something LeBron couldn’t – attract free agents to Cleveland. Andrew Bynum apparently has the Cavs on his list.
