Kyrie Irving and Nike Release new “Takedown” Sneaker

Published

on

Kyrie Irving and Nike have an $80 shoe called the Kyrie 3 ‘Takedown’ set to release. Irving’s signature sneaker line is one of the most popular lines and with his play on the court combined with hot sneakers Irving is trending up in the ranks of the NBA.

You can take a look at the shoe here.

Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James have all had takedown models and this move was to make the Kyrie’s more affordable.

Irving has been wearing different versions of the shoe during this season. The first game of the year against his old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, he wore the Kyrie 3 ‘Celtics.’ These shoes were going to bring in Irving’s Boston Celtics tenure.

He ended up having 22 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals in a 99-102 loss in Cleveland.

Another notable Kyrie 3 version were the “Luck” version. The shoes were gold with green clovers placed all over the shoe.

Irving wore the shoes on a November 16th game against the Warriors. The shoes were a player-exclusive shoe which means that Irving wore them on the court. They were sold the next day in limited quantities at the House of Hoops in Harlem and in Boston.

Irving had 16 points, five rebounds and six assists in that game in which they won 92-88.

Nike releasing the ‘Takedown’ shoe is a good look for the young basketball community. The younger generation does not have the money and they rely on their parents to buy the shoes for them. This will ease the parent’s pockets and let kids wear their favorite basketball players shoe.

The Kyrie 3 has received great feedback from sneaker heads and I think these are Kyrie’s best sneakers because the people behind the shoe are thinking about all parties.

Lebron James simply wasn’t ready to home.  Facing elimination, James poured on 46 points to force Game 7.

The Cavs won on Friday night, 109-99 despite losing Kevin Love to head injury. James was determined not to let the series end.

James was close to a triple-double but had to settle for a double-double.  James ended the night with 46 points in 46 minutes. He also added 11 rebs and 9 assist.

“Greatness,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “Championship pedigree. Giving it his all. We needed that, especially when Kevin went down. We had to play `Bron as many minutes as he had to. He delivered. He was up for the challenge. He carried us home as usual.”

“It’s a Game 7,” James said. “It’s something that you wish you had when you’re done playing, but more than that, it’s just basketball for me. I know what I’m capable of doing, and I’m going to trust everything I put into it.”

Boston stayed in the game thanks to Terry Rozier’s 28 points and Jaylen Brown adding 27 points.

Boston guard Marcus Smart gave his thoughts on Game 7.

“It’s not going to be pretty,” Celtics guard Marcus Smart said. “We’ve got to come out ready to get our nose bloody and our mouth bloody. We’ve got to come out ready to fight. You’ve got to find a way, whatever it takes.”

Jalen Rose Walks Off Set Over Jordan Vs Lebron

Published

on

The debate over Jordan versus Lebron will be one talked about forever. No matter where you go. For some, there is no debate, Jordan all day. For others, Lebron hands down.

Jay Williams joined Get Up! to make the point that in 1 on 1, he would give Lebron the advantage.

“You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike. In a one-on-one game, LeBron James, 6-9, 260 pounds — if the game was to seven, I think LeBron would win 7-3. You can talk about his mentality, but we’re not talking about five-on-five basketball, J-Rose. We’re not talking about the passive LeBron, making the right play … LeBron James is 6-9, 260, he moves like a guard! He moves like a guard. He defends like a guard.”

Jalen responded with the classic Jordan comeback.

“Michael Jordan was all-defensive first team nine times. LeBron James was five times. Michael Jordan led the league in scoring ten times. Ten! LeBron James led the league in scoring once. I’m talking about a guy whose been the best offensive player AND the best defensive player.”
