Kyrie Irving got a taste of his own medicine as James Harden caught the Nets guard slippin’.
The all-NBA hoopers were face-to-face with the Beard pounding the rock. James hypnotized Irving’s Brooklyn squad with a mixture of between-the-legs dribbles, before Kyrie went for a steal in. In the words of Uncle Drew: don’t reach, youngblood. Harden went left-to-right on the crossover, completely freezing Irving. The Barclays Center couldn’t help but ooh as James drove towards the hoop. The Beard then floated a lob to Rockets teammate Clint Capela for the easy throwdown.
The sneakers the Beard rocked for this historic game was the adidas Harden Vol. 4. This shoe features LIGHTSTRIKE cushioning that provides a balance of responsiveness and step-in comfort, while still being lightweight. A midfoot band draws eyes while also locking in James’ foot to assist with all of his stop-and-go moves.
James rocked the Scarlet Red version of the shoe, which you can find HERE.
