Kyrie Irving on the cover of EA Sports' NBA Live 14
“I'm so proud to be the face of this franchise as it makes its much-anticipated return. I've been on the court with the development team and I've seen first-hand some of the amazing things EA Sports is doing with NBA Live 14. The fans are going to love it!”
In a league full of talented, young point guards, Irving is probably one of the most deadly players when it comes to dribbling skills. Despite playing in just 11 games at Duke due to foot injury, he was selected 1st overall by the Cavaliers in the NBA Draft 11, and immediately lead the franchise into its next era.
Two years later and his resume is growing: NBA Rookie of the Year, NBA All-Star, USA Basketball selection, and Three-Point Contest champion. What will Kyrie Irving do in his 3rd year? We asked him a couple of questions to find out.
