Kyrie Irving and the Urban Culture

I didn't want to FanShot this because it seems that those never get noticed.

I found this article while just kind of surfing the web, and got really intrigued. Its a short read, but it is a really interesting perspective on how the more "suburban," young, black athletes are changing the urban basketball culture. The article is really interesting on a sort of political level, and doesn't assess Kyrie's skills so much as how he was raised.

Disclaimer: its not so much a basketball article as it is a cultural article about basketball. Some people here might enjoy it, so here ya go.
