As you can see, that lightning-quick spin move from Kyrie Irving left Lonzo Ball in the dust, opening up a space for the Nets guard to drain a fadeaway jumper.
While Kyrie’s supreme skills make it like an easy feat, the level of difficulty on this move coupled with the easy swished jumper is truly exemplary.
While the Nets are currently struggling hard against the injury bug, especially after Tuesday’s news regarding the setback that James Harden experienced in his recovery from a hamstring strain, the team is still a truly terrifying presence for any Eastern Conference playoff team.
Irving himself is having a fairly standard terrific season for the veteran, who’s currently playing in his 10th season in the NBA and second with the Nets.
Irving is actually playing his highest minutes per game load this season (35.1) since the 2016-17 season, which was his final one in Cleveland. He is averaging 27.3 points, 6.1 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game.
He’s doing all of this on the highest true shooting percentage of his career at 61.4 percent, clearly enjoying his time playing on the Brooklyn roster alongside two other superstar-caliber players.
