With the recent injuries to Steph Curry and Chris Paul, healthy elite point guards are an even more prized commodity during this first round of the NBA playoffs. Kyrie Irving, who endured his own knee injury during last year's finals, is no doubt knocking wood as the Cavaliers finally seem to be clicking at an optimal moment. Having swept the Pistons, the Cavs are currently savoring the sweet taste of victory. If Kyrie has his way, that sweetness comes with cream cheese frosting, reflecting his preference for red velvet cake. That's the inspiration for this upcoming Kyrie 2 model, which launches at Nike.com beginning April 28th.
