The Kyrie Irving basketball journey is still in its infancy.
Only 25, the Australian-born world champion, Olympic gold medalist and crossover king has proven he has no fear – whether it’s taking the dagger shot, taking charge, or rising to the challenge.
During his first official Nike world tour as a signature athlete, Irving will immerse himself in Asian basketball culture, while strengthening his understanding and appreciation for the worldwide basketball community.
His travel includes stops in Tokyo, Japan; Taipei, Taiwan and Beijing, China. News of Irving’s intercontinental tour of Asia will update daily on the official Nike website: http://news.nike.com/news/kyrie-irving-tours-asia-with-nike-basketball
Irving has been in the news lately for asking for a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. He is reportedly eyeing a move to the Big Apple to join the New York Knicks. Barring that, Irving has also given the Cavs a laundry list of teams that he rather suit up for next season, including the San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves.
