Kyrie Irving is one of the NBA’s brightest young stars, most marketable entities, and reigning NBA Rookie Of The Year. Coming out of the prestigious DUKE University Basketball program coached by the iconic Coach K, expectations were immense for the young man, but so far he has met and possibly exceeded them all by becoming one of the sport’s brightest stars. With all of his success on the court, Kyrie has turned into a marketing machine off of it doing viral videos with Bill Russell for Pepsi Max, and last night we even were able to watch the preview of his new commercial with Foot Locker called “In The Air” (It was so awesome!). The future is extremely bright for Kyrie Irving, and it will be exciting to watch his rise to MVP and championship contender.
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with reigning Rookie Of The Year Kyrie Irving at a private event in NYC to unveil his new commercial, to talk about his incredible first year in the NBA, what the transition was like from college to the Pros, his alter ego “Uncle Drew”, playing Kobe Bryant 1 on 1, and soo much more! Kyrie is one of the most humble and gracious athletes I have ever met, and is a wonderful role model for children everywhere trying to make it to the NBA.
