Kyrie Irving is a player that literally you could move from one court to the other court. He’s that far advanced in terms of his talent, it appears. He’s made a good showing here. He had a terrific rookie season in the NBA and certainly he will be one of the leading candidates going forward.
- Team USA managing director Jerry Colangelo referring to the two courts that delineate between the Olympic team and the “select” team. Irving, who had 11 points in a 14-11 select team victory on the first day of camp, has been reportedly ”excellent,” and has all but locked up a spot on the 2016 squad that will look to achieve a gold medal in Brazil. Irving averaged 18.5 points a game, shot 46.9 percent from the field and 87.2 percent from the free throw line for the Cavaliers in 2011-12.
