Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry sported sneakers honoring President Barack Obama during Monday’s 126-91 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The red, white and blue shoes featured the Presidential Seal on the tongue, Obama’s signature on the soles and the phrase Back 2 Back, reffering to Curry’s back-to-back NBA MVP honors and Obama’s two terms in office.
Curry shared an image of the sneakers on Instagram, along with the caption: Honoring our President Barack Obama today on court! He embodies the inspiration, faith and hope Dr. King stood for! We R forever grateful!

Irving will use this move in the pick-and-roll, too, by dribbling into his defender and using it as a springboard to create space. With his quick release, there aren’t many defenders who have the physical tools to block his pull-up.

We can’t talk about Irving and not mention his crossover. The funny thing is it’s hard to find Irving doing the exact same crossover more than once. The reason why? He’s comfortable using different types of crossovers in succession to break down a defender.
The next two videos are from the same game, and Irving is faced with the same matchup in both situations: Ersan Ilyasova switches onto him following a pick-and-roll, which Irving responds to by clearing the floor and going one-on-one. On the first possession, Irving slowly crosses the ball over from his left hand to his right hand and then crosses it back over to his left hand for a quick pull-up in rhythm.
