Kyrie pays respect to Kobe and Bruce Lee with special Kyrie 3

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

At first thought, #kobebryant and #kyrieirving have little in common with #brucelee. However, the basketball and martial arts stars do share striking personal and philosophical similarities.

Wisdom, focus and individuality bond them. Specifically, Bryant and Irving are inspired by Lee’s famous words, “Always be yourself. Express yourself. Have faith in yourself.”

Irving is intimately aware of this connection, and first expressed it when he was 17 while playing in the #nike Extravaganza in California. He channeled his inner mamba by wearing a special Kobe 5 that was inspired by the late martial artist, actor and philosopher, Lee. Now 25, Irving commemorates that moment and pays tribute to Byrant as mentor and friend with a special edition of the #kyrie3: the #kyrie3 Mamba Mentality.
