Kyrie Irving wins 2013 3-Point Contest

The Kyrie Irving All-Star extravaganza continued on Satruday night as the Cavs’ point guard was crowned the 2013 3-point contest champion.

Irving scored 18 in the first round and 23 in the finals to defeat the Spurs’ Matt Bonner who finished with 20. In the last year and a half Irving has been crowned MVP of the Rising Stars Challenge, Rookie of the Year, and is now the 2013 3-Point Champion.

The last Cavalier to win the 3-Point contest was Mark Price, who won back to back titles in 1993 and 1994.

    I’m waiting for the “Kyrie wasn’t wearing a Cavs jersey” to get blown out of proportion by Cleveland fans. But maybe they will talk about Lebron cheering for him? Maybe he IS coming back to Cleveland in 2014? He did get 23 points to win the finals….or maybe Kyrie is headed to Miami?

    I just hope he saved something for tomorrow. The guy is an amazing talent that the country doesn’t really get to see because the Cavs are never on national TV. If he can put on a show in the big boy All Star game, he (and the Cavs) could really earn some credibility.

  • Wow

    you know what they say, play with what you practice in. I’m sure he was wearing his gold jersey underneath

    He was wearing an ‘East’ t-shirt. He was wearing his Cavs jersey underneath it though, I don’t know why it’s a big deal.

    It’s funny but when I saw him step to his first rack I wondered why he didn’t take off the warmup only because I thought shooting in it would be more restrictive than a sleeveless jersey.
