Editor’s Notes: For Kyrie Irving’s latest Kyrie 3 colorway, Nike has chosen to pay respect to Kobe Bryant and Bruce Lee. While Kyrie’s connection to Kobe is well documented, the one-time NBA champion also has a profound appreciation for Lee, notably these famous words: “Always be yourself. Express yourself. Have faith in yourself.”
Furthermore, while playing in the Nike Extravaganza in California at age 17, Irving wore a special Kobe 5 inspired by the late actor/martial arts specialist. Now, the Swoosh and Kyrie are remembering that moment, while additionally celebrating Kobe as Irving’s mentor and friend.
You can look forward to the thematic Kyrie 3 “Mamba Mentality” arriving in a matter of weeks.
