Since he came into the league, Kyrie Irving has shared elite company on the court. Now he will be sharing elite company off of it too.
It’s here. Tune in now to be a part of a very special Nike moment: http://t.co/lX7MlAkohX— Nike Basketball (@nikebasketball) December 4, 2014
Tonight, Nike partnered with Facebook to announce Irving as their newest signature athlete, joining the likes of Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, and teammate LeBron James.
Previously, Kyrie has worn the Hyperdunk shoe, with his own logo. Prior to this season the logo was redesigned which signaled that a new shoe was probably on the way. He is the 20th athlete, and the first player in the last decade to have a signature line, Durant being the last.
We will update as the event goes on, and new images are released.
