Earlier this month it was announced that NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving will be partnering with headphone and earbud company Skullcandy. The endorsement with Skullcandy will give Irving a little more input than normal endorsements by having Irving give his own personal touch on the company’s products and his own personal line of products.
Kyrie Irving is a Melbourne, Victoria, Australia native whose dream of playing in the NBA started after a fourth grade trip to Continental Airlines Arena. After a highly illustrious high school career, Irving committed to play for Duke in 2009. Through the first eight games of the season in 2011, Irving was averaging over 17 points a game, five assists, four rebounds, and 1.5 steals a game. However in the ninth game of their season Irving suffered a severe ligament injury on his big toe and didn’t play another game for Duke until the beginning of the NCAA tournament where he scored 28 points in the sweet sixteen game against Arizona. Following his only season at the University of Duke, Irving was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the first overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Irving finished his rookie season with the Cavs averaging over 18 points a game and the rookie of the year award. The following season Irving was selected to his first All-Star game and became the youngest player in NBA history to score 40 points at Madison Square Garden. After his second straight all-star appearance, Irving was joined by Lebron James and Kevin Love to form a big three who actually started the season slow with a 5-7 record but ultimately went on to the NBA Finals their first year together. Irving was subsequently injured in the first game of the Finals and with missing Irving, the Cavaliers ultimately lost the series to the Golden State Warriors. Irving ended up missing the beginning of the 2015 season due to the fractured kneecap he suffered in the Finals the previous year but since his return Irving has assisted the Cavs in finishing the year with the number one seed in the Eastern Conference as the Cavs look to rebound and take home the NBA title this season.
Earlier this month it was announced that NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving will partner with Skullcandy by helping the company start a personal line for Irving while also taking his input in their other products as well. The marriage of the two should turn out to be successful due in large part to Irving’s creativity and touch on todays in styles and trends.
