Things intensify for Kyrie Irving in just a few weeks.
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Kyrie Irving should be glowing.
He's not long removed from being named the Most Valuable Player of the FIBA World Cup, leading the United States to a gold medal. In what started as a crowded group of stud point guards for the American side, Irving grabbed the starting job and flourished.
"This is by far the biggest accomplishment of my life," Irving said. "This feels amazing. It's one of the greatest feelings that I've ever felt. All the emotions haven't come to me yet but I did it with a bunch of guys that I can call my brothers for the rest of my life."
Irving's experience in Spain may have been wonderful, but things intensify for him in just a few weeks.
