Before he was a Flat Earther, or injury prone, or even, some would say, a bit of a diva, Kyrie Irving was a rookie of the year, a world champion, and, a skater? Now, Kyrie Irving is an insane athlete, with insane handles, as seen in his Uncle Drew character, but he’s not going to blow any minds on a skateboard. But that said, the dude can ride, as witnessed in this classic clip posted on The Berrics YouTube page a couple of weeks ago.
In its First Try Fridays series, TB tries to get various celebrities and skate legends to do things, well, for the first time. Here, they convince Kyrie to drop in on a hip at the now defunct Sixth & Mill facility in Los Angeles once run by Nike. Kyrie makes it look easy.
