NBA All-Star 2013: Watch Kyrie Irving destroy Brandon Knight - Again and Again

In the midst of all the failed dunk attempts in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge last night, Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers provided the fans with a play they will not forget. We all know that Irving has great ball handling skills, and he made sure to put them on display.

Irving was isolated on the right wing against Brandon Knight. He went behind his back, in between his legs, dribbled to the right, then left, then right and then…yes I got dizzy too. The damage done? Bradon Knight suffered some broken ankles and Irving masterfully drained the jumper in his face. Watch the play below:

    You make it sound like Irving was destroing Knight over and over. From those who saw the game there was a back and forth between the 2 where Knight hit a few shots too. Yes its a fun play and Irving got him on that one but where is the over and over part. For someone who thinks King James is gospal I can understand worshiping the things that will leave Cleveland next.

      What I was referring to was the fact that you can watch Irving destroy Brandon Knight in that particular play over and over, which you can by looking at the constantly replaying gif image. Knight did indeed get back at Irving as well, but the short piece above is solely focusing on one spectacular play.

    Most people know how to hit replay on a youtube video or most other video available on the web. We really dont need headline to let us know we can watch more than once.

      Alright. I simply wanted to indicate that you could watch it here. I sincerely apologize for misleading you and vow to amend my ways moving forward. Thanks for the feedback.
