Slamadaday: Kyrie Irving at the Donofrio Classic

Despite the birth of AAU, sneaker camps and all-star tournaments, the best players still arrive at the Donofrio Classic, including Duke-bound Kyrie Irving.

Kyrie brought matters into his own hands last night, completing one of the most impressive and-one dunks to ever rattle the Fellowship House’s rims over the Donofrie’s 50-year history (one that includes the likes of Kobe Bryant, Earl Monroe, Hank Gathers and Rasheed Wallace, among others). Irving’s 32 points earned his team a 94-80 win and a spot in tonight’s championship game (7:30 p.m. ET).

  • Zarfan

    Didn’t even say a word after the play. Actions speak louder than words.

  • T-Money

  • Nothuman

    he looked a little pissed that the dude fouled him.

  • SMK

    the most vicious blast at a Donofrio since Private Pyle ate his rifle.

  • james

    LMAO he so nonchalant about it.

  • http://slamonline.com marcus

    hey i was there…it was sick

  • 6marjons

    us white dudes jump because in the 1 out of 50 times that we actually get the block it feels so damn good, its a shame it feels so bad when we get dunked on the other 49 though


    DUKE REPEAT BABY!!!! Think about it, Nolan, Singler, Dawkins, Curry, Irving ! WOW is all I can say about that.

  • FunkDoktor Spokk

    He was pissed that dude went into his body while in the air which is dangerous.

  • PlanetAsia14


  • t.oville aka youngmoney

    White man can’t jump

  • nastierthanu2

    stupid foul he was trailing the play and there was no chance of the block I would’ve been pissed too. The temperament is what makes him a duke guy. I hate that and will boo this cat for the remainder of his life. Nice finish though

  • Tim

    his head was behind the backboard when he dunked it

  • DukeBro

    Future Dukie baby!!! I can see him dunking all over that tarhole Barnes now!!! lol, sending them back to lose again in the NIT, lamo.

    GO DUKE!!

  • http://cash4alltoday.com Ryan

    He had a dunk against Elizabeth high school which made this one look like a lay-up. The kid just goes about dominating the game with ease. Best all around guard ever in NJ. Offense, defense, leadership and effort. Sorry Juanny.

  • Rob

    funny thing is… same white kid blocked his ass when he tried it again
