Kyrie Irving Is Determined to Get Back in the Game
“My escape will always be — and always has been — the basketball court”
Following a kneecap fracture earlier this year that prevented him from competing in the NBA Finals, Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving shows us his grueling training routine to get back into shape. The motivational clip above with Nike Training depicts his discipline, waking up at 6 a.m. and working out for two hours every day before starting practice at 10 a.m. He compares the process after the injury to climbing Mount Everest with the pinnacle of planting the flag compared to reuniting with his team again on the court. Shot in black and white, the first-person narrative provides an impassioned glance at Irving’s dedication to his craft and desire to achieve greatness as a basketball player through hard work and determination.
