Kyrie Irving Reveals “Kyrie 4” Nike Signature Shoe

Published

on

The Kyrie 3 has done well for Kyrie Irving and the Nike camp. This is good but the show must go on as they say. Irving and Nike did just that when the Kyrie 4 released on Saturday.

Irving took to Instagram to post a video showing the first look at the shoe on Thursday.

In the caption Irving said:

“Closing the chapter on the Kyrie 3, and starting a new with the Kyrie 4. And I sit here and realize that although there is constant division and misunderstandings of actions and emotions going on daily(every moment), OUR world is far greater when we collectively realize that the true power and unwavering belief in ourselves is far more powerful than anyone else’s belief…..”

The caption helps us dive into Irving’s head which one could guess that this release is more than just your average sneaker release. It is a statement on the times we are in today and where Irving is as a person.

Closing the chapter on the Kyrie 3, and starting a new with the Kyrie 4. And I sit here and realize that although there is constant division and misunderstandings of actions and emotions going on daily(every moment), OUR world is far greater when we collectively realize that the true power and unwavering belief in ourselves is far more powerful than anyone else's belief. Culture that power, learn it, understand it, and teach others through your actions: creating, educating yourself, being who you are truthfully, respecting others individual intent and journeys, Whatever that individual purpose is, fulfill it soulfully without letting anything knock you down or deter you. We all need it. We all need US as ONE, filled with incredible individuality without judgement. It's about love and teaching, and ultimately showing respect without wondering whether or not it'll be given back because you always show gratitude regardless. I always give that to everything I do and I only hope we all do the same. All Love, the new chapter begins. #Kyrie4

A post shared by Kyrie Irving (@kyrieirving) on

“For me it’s always being a creator, an innovator, an inspirer of the youth and an inspirer of the individuals who are constantly on that search to fulfill that greatness…” Kyrie said in the video.

Irving left the confines of the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James to have a team of his own. This may be the search for greatness that Irving is talking about basketball wise.

So far he has led the Boston Celtics to the best record in the Eastern Conference and they are primed to do damage in the playoffs even without Gordon Hayward.

Irving worked with sneaker designer extraordinaire Ben Nethongkome. Nethongkome has designed shoes like the Kobe Mentality 2, Mamba Rage and LeBron Witness 1.

The key design of the shoe is the outsole which helps Kyrie cut and perform those ankle breaking crossovers we are so used to see him doing.

These shoes will be the ones to start Irving on his quest to achieve what he desires for himself.  These sneakers look like they are crafted from his old sneaker releases to create the ultimate sneaker.

Irving has already proved that he can handle the spotlight of his own team. This shoe continues his dominance in the sneaker world and proves that the only person that Irving is competing with is himself now.

You can get the “Confetti” colorway now at SNKRS and select retailers for $120.

NFL Halts Policy To Penalize Players For Kneeling During The Anthem

Published

on

The NFL and NFLPA have come to an agreement to not to enforce the rule change to penalize players for taking a knee.

In May, the NFL unilaterally instituted a new policy surrounding the national anthem that would punish players and teams for kneeling as away to protest police brutality against people of color.  Which was a complete change in direction from their stance in October 2017.

The league and the NFL Players Association issued a joint statement Thursday that said “no new rules relating to the anthem will be issued or enforced for the next several weeks” while both sides continue to hold discussions to figure out how to move forward.

“The NFL and NFLPA, through recent discussions, have been working on a resolution to the anthem issue,” the joint statement said. “In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA’s grievance and on the NFL’s anthem policy.

“The NFL and NFLPA reflect the great values of America, which are repeatedly demonstrated by the many players doing extraordinary work in communities across our country to promote equality, fairness and justice. Our shared focus will remain on finding a solution to the anthem issue through mutual, good faith commitments, outside of litigation.”

Players around the league were not happy with the leagues’ policy change. At least this move allows more discussions and won’t allow teams to suspend players.

Kawhi Leonard Traded To The Raptors

Published

on

The Kawhi Leonard era in San Antonio is officially over.

The San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors agreed to a deal in principle that would involve a swap of All-Stars Kawhi Leonard and DeMar DeRozan, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday.

Wojnarowski reported Leonard and Danny Green will head to Toronto in exchange for DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round draft pick. Toronto’s first-round pick to San Antonio is a protected 1-20 selection. After one year, it becomes two second-round picks.

Per Wojnarowski, the first-round pick is protected for the 20th overall selection and above, and after a year, it will turn into two second-round draft choices.

Toronto would be able to offer Leonard a five-year, $190 million contract next summer. If Leonard left the Raptors, he could sign a four-year, $141 million deal with a team with the available salary-cap space.

Kawhi has already made his intentions known to head back to Cali when he hits free agency. So this move is likely only stop gap.
