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.

Chris Paul, Rondo, And Brandon Ingram Brawl In Lakers Home Opener

Published

on

The Houston Rockets downed the Los Angeles Lakers 125-115 in Lebron James first home game at the Staples Center. James Harden led all scorers with 35 points, all of that is overshadowed by the 4th quarter brawl.

With four minutes left in the game, Rockets guard James Harden drew a foul while driving to the hoop, making a layup over Lakers forward Brandon Ingram to put the Rockets up by 109-108. Ingram, though, didn’t like the call. The 21-year-old quickly shoved Harden in the back, drawing a technical foul.

Ingram, Paul and Rondo were all ejected from the game after officials reviewed the incident. The three will likely face suspensions and fines from the league as soon as Sunday — since the Rockets play again on Sunday night.

“That’s unacceptable,” Carmelo Anthony said of the alleged spitting by Rondo. “You don’t do that to nobody — in sports, on the street. That’s blatant disrespect. You don’t do that. That’s unacceptable. … You don’t even see that in the streets, man. I don’t know what else to say about that.”

Harden defended Paul’s reaction.

“I mean Chris had to stand up for himself,” Harden said. “It is what it is. I don’t care what man, anywhere, anytime, NBA game or in the streets.”

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Lakers officials are backing Rondo’s “contention that he didn’t spit” on Paul, while the Rockets are insisting that he did.

James who is best friends with Chris Paul weighed in on what happened after the game. “I just tried to calm things down, that’s all,” James said. “Play basketball.”

NBA Players also weighed on their thoughts about the fight.
