Kyrie Irving: There was a block in my life that I had, and that block was called fear. It was the fear of what other people thought. It was the fear of failing. It was the fear of going through life and not being as educated as I wanted to be. Once I got over that block, and accepting fear itself, and looking it in the face and said I’m going to kick your A-S-S, then everything else started to open up. I started being more comfortable with myself.
RN: Did you discover anything new about yourself after getting over your block of fear? KI: Yeah, that I’m powerful beyond belief. I truly believe that. I believe everyone has an inner power that they want to express, but the only way that power can be expressed is through inner peace. Then you start to develop and know that power you want to share with the world. And that’s regardless of whatever you want to do. Whether you want to do art, or being part of culture, being the best athlete you could be, being the best musician, being the best student, anything that you put your mind to or have the power to change or be better at.
Kyrie Irving is prepared to make a most memorable pass. Cleveland’s star point guard said he’s going to give his diamond NBA championship ring to his father, Drederick. Irving, whose 3-pointer in the final two minutes of Game 7 helped the Cavs complete their historic comeback over Golden State in the finals, said following Saturday’s practice that he intends to give the keepsake to his dad. “I give my dad almost everything,” he said. “So, every accomplishment, every MVP award, every trophy that I’ve had since I was probably about 13 or 12, I’ve given to my dad.”
Uncle Drew is coming back one more time. Kyrie Irving’s alter ego, a crotchety, old, playground hoops legend named “Uncle Drew” who’s been the main character of a series of Pepsi commercials, will appear in one final chapter over the coming months or years, Irving hinted Thursday. “I wouldn’t promise the next summer, but there is something big that we’re planning which I’m really excited about,” Irving said. “Hopefully the details can be released in the forthcoming future but I’m excited about it. There will be a last chapter that will happen but I don’t think it will be on YouTube.”
To tip off the NBA’s “This Is Why We Play” campaign, Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers are featured in a brand new spot titled, “29,” which addresses that question. The 30-second video, complete with highlights and chilling music, takes viewers inside the mind of Irving as he prepares to start again and face 29 hungry teams, eager to claim the league’s throne. “Winning was a challenge,” Irving narrates during the 30-second spot. “But repeating will be too because there are 29 teams in our way again and they’ve all come back stronger.”
