Video: Celtics’ Kyrie Irving channels his inner Michael Jackson

In a video posted on Twitter, Boston Celtics All-Star guard Kyrie Irving is shown imitating a familiar move popularized by Michael Jackson.

It is the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson’s “Anti-gravity lean” which he used in concerts and music videos. Irving used this exercise to improve his balance and it is a fun fact that he is capable of doing this move.

It is nice to see this side of the Celtics point guard who proved that he can truly bust some moves not just on the court, but also on any dance floor.

Michael Jackson, who passed away in June 2009, has remained extremely popular even after his death. Known as an all-around entertainer, his songs and dance steps will forever be remembered for their uniqueness and energy.

Kyrie Irving himself also brings superb energy to the crowd with his dribbling prowess that’s considered as one of the deadliest in NBA history.

The Celtics are currently on a three-game losing streak and Irving needs to defy gravity if he wants to make things right for his team.

After 17 games, Kyrie Irving has averaged 26.6 points, 7.0 assists, and 5.0 rebounds per game this November. Still, that isn’t enough to lead the Celtics who hold a 4-7 record for the month entering their matchup against the Atlanta Hawks.

Recently Irving stated that he can’t wait to get things right for the Celtics. A home loss against a lowly New York Knicks team from Wednesday didn’t help as it lowered their morale.
