As more and more information about Kyrie Irving's stance with the Cleveland Cavaliers leaks, the messier it gets. Kyrie has the offensive ability to get anywhere he wants on the court and get a clean look. We just don't know if he'll be displaying these talents with the Cavs in the future. Well, at least Kyrie's excited about something else as he personally unveiled the Kobe Bryant-inspired Nike Kyrie III 'Bruce Lee'. 

Over the past few years, Kyrie Irving and Kobe Bryant have developed quite the relationship as he's publicly stated he's reached out to the two guard and brand new father for advice and even stated he had the 'Mamba Mentality' after draining his championship winning three-pointer against the Warriors in 2016. So, this particular sneaker is definitely something special to the young guard. 

The kicks take on the color scheme of the yellow jumpsuit worn by Bruce Lee in the 1972 film, Game of Death, a classic that we might revisit in the near future to watch Lee take on Kareem Abdul Jabbar and many more. The kicks feature a yellow mesh upper complete with similar texturized graphics as the 'Samurai' colorway, a gradient 'Black/Yellow' midsole, the claw slash graphic sits at the lateral forefoot of the kicks while black Nike branding, sock linings, forefoot paneling, and tongues featuring both Kyrie and Kobe Bryant branding and a black outsole close out the sneaker. 

There's no word on whether if the kicks will be released or not but, you gotta admit these joints are hard. Check out Kyrie's inspiration behind the sneaker and let us know your thoughts on the kicks in the comments.
