Preseason basketball is relatively boring, even for the most hardcore NBA fan. But thankfully, during those sleep inducing games, we have moments like these.
During the Cleveland Cavaliers most recent game against the Philadelphia 76ers, guard Kyrie Irving decided he’d show off a bit in front of the Ohio crowd as he busted out not one, but two slick crossover dribbles, breaking the ankles of both Philadelphia 76ers players who attempted to cover the talented Irving.
First up was Michael Carter-Williams, who ended up being on the wrong end of an Irving crossover, but the former Duke product wasn’t done. Just moments later, the Cavaliers got the ball back off a turnover and Irving decided he’d run the guantlant on another Sixer, this time the unfortunate party being Evan Turner.
Thankfully, there was no need to stop the game to clean up all the broken ankle bones.
Lost completely in the shuffle was Irving’s sick lay-in after the first juke while Kyrie dropped off a nice dish after the second crossover.
