Kyrie Irving turns 25 today. Does that make you feel old? It makes me feel old. I want him to stay young forever. I want to remain surprised by his deceptive speed and agility. I want to doubt every slightly off-balance three he takes off the dribble in crunch-time until the moment the ball rattles in. The fact of the matter is that it is Kyrie’s 25th birthday, and he has more highlights than most will put together in an entire career. I don’t have to list them for you, but the man has been collecting clutch buckets since he came into the league.
Luckily, the NBA wanted to help Irving celebrate his day. It’s a compilation of Irving’s most important buckets. It’s 14 minutes long. Think about that. Think about that as you watch each one. He’s under contract with the Cavs for the foreseeable future, and he is either in the middle of his prime, or just getting ready to start it. Not bad.
