Kyrie Irving hit a familiar-looking clutch 3 last night, “Too soon” for Draymond

In what was billed as Love of Country vs Love of Coffee Lover, by me, just now, the US Men’s Basketball team went toe to toe with Matthew Dellavedova and Australia last night in Rio. The stars and stripes actually trailed at halftime, 54-49, and had their hands full all the way up until the fourth quarter. Up 90-86 with 1:35 left in the game, Kyrie did this:

If you’re wondering where you’ve seen that before (you’re not, because you just re-watched the 4th quarter of Game 7 for the 300th time last night), it looked an awful lot like his dagger at the end of Game 7 of the NBA Finals:

To make the W even sweeter, Draymond had a rare moment of self-awareness after the game and said that it was “too soon” for Irving to pull another move like that:

Get your hand off his head, dude. Don’t touch him. Don’t f***ing touch him.

PPS When do we start talking about the Cleveland Coffee Company in the same breath as Mr. Hero? Delly released a coffee with them, out of Cleveland a couple months later. Yan Gomes released his own blend in June, after which he hit both .159 and the Disabled List. Don’t even think about it, intern who is contemplating pitching Coleman Cappuccino to his boss. Don’t you dare.

Cavs v Warriors NBA Finals Game 5 Highlight Reel (Baauer Mix)

 

Very late getting this up. Apologies. These things take forever and my brain has turned into mush during this Finals run. Got a late start on it, couldn’t pick a good song, then uploaded the wrong one. Hopefully this isn’t the last one of the season.

Song: Baauer- Day Ones

 

After Dropping 41 Points In An NBA Finals Game, Kyrie Is Joyriding Around Town In A Dune Buggy

How would you celebrate after dropping 41 points and putting on one of the most dazzling offensive performances in NBA Finals history? OF COURSE you’d go joyriding around in a dune buggy. Of course. Maybe hit up some trails in the woods or go mudding.

So LeBron dropped 41 and probably got into his Kia Optima. Kyrie drops 41 and gets into his… dune buggy? I don’t understand it, man, but I like it. Our superstars don’t need Lambos or Ferrari. They rock off road vehicles and affordable mid size sedans.

2 more wins in this series and my vote is that Kyrie drives this thing up and down East 9th during the parade.
