Kyrie Irving Drew League highlights: Mavericks star shows out with triple-double at Los Angeles Pro-Am

“Uncle Drew” pulled up to the Drew League on Saturday.

Mavericks star guard Kyrie Irving had a surprise in store for Los Angeles natives checking out the city’s legendary Pro-Am league.

Irving suited up for the Nationwide Souljas in a battle against Cal Supreme, and his presence helped the Souljas pull off a blowout win to snap a two-game losing streak.

As you would imagine, Irving was in his bag, putting on a show for the crowd with plenty of highlights. The superstar guard recorded a triple-double, going off for 20 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists.

Take a look at the best moments from his performance below.

Kyrie Irving Drew League highlights

After recently signing a sneaker deal with the Chinese brand ANTA, Irving made his highly anticipated Drew League debut in the ANTA Shock Wave Pro 5’s.

He got going early, finishing a lefty layup and knocking down an open 3-ball in the opening quarter.

His first highlight came in the form of a touch pass for an easy bucket.

Just because it’s a summer exhibition game doesn’t mean Irving wasn’t digging in on defense, too. When a Cal Supreme player thought he had an easy layup, Irving stepped up to swat his shot away.

One assist shy of a triple-double, Irving snagged an offensive rebound and feathered a pass to his teammate, who did all the hard work to register Irving’s 10th assist.

With the Souljas up by 19 points late in the fourth quarter, Irving tried to give the fans a signature moment on a fast break. He attempted to throw himself a lob off the glass, but he just missed the dunk, still receiving some “oohs” and “ahhs” from the crowd.

Irving put on an unselfish performance, finishing with a triple-double of 20 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists in a blowout victory for his team.

Supposedly, this isn’t the last we’ll see of the All-Star guard at the Los Angeles Pro-Am, either.

According to The Athletic’s Law Murray — who was in attendance for Irving’s Drew League debut — Kyrie is expected to play for the Nationwide Souljas next month and help them compete for a Drew League championship.
