Posted June 09, 2018 12:37:52With his own music academy already under threat, Kyrie and the rest of the Cavs organization have now been handed a new challenge: how do they make a go of it with a fledgling, new school?
“I don’t want to say this is a nightmare,” Kyrie told me on the phone this week, his voice breaking with emotion.
I can’t even imagine what it’s going to look like. “
This is going to be a very difficult time.
I can’t even imagine what it’s going to look like.
I’ve never been more focused on basketball, and basketball is the last thing I’m thinking about.”
Kyrie has no intention of leaving his home in Kentucky after he graduates from his first two years of music education at the Kanata Music Academy in Kanata, Kan., which was set up with the help of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It’s an academy where he has been mentored by some of the best and brightest in the country, including Kyrie’s dad, Nate, who taught Kyrie for a year and a half at the school before he started playing for the Cavs.
It’s also a place where Kyrie can learn from a group of talented musicians who have all taken their talents to the NBA, including former Kyrie colleagues like Isaiah Thomas and Kyrie West, a fellow high school teammate and Kyriestan grad who also recently made it to the league.
The school has been a lifeline for Kyrie since his rookie season, and it’s where he began learning from a range of different artists.
In January, the Cavs acquired former NBA point guard and Kyrio mentor Nate Brittin, a talented scorer who can play off the ball, and he helped the Cavs with their transition to the more modern basketball style of basketball they are trying to develop.
Kyrie, who was initially hesitant to take the position, has now embraced it and has begun to take pride in the lessons that he’s learned.
He’s learning to read his opponents’ shots, anticipate where they’ll attack, and to recognize the best ways to play in the pick-and-roll.
And he’s learning the nuances of how to read opponents’ rotations.
All of that has been very valuable to Kyrie.
He has played in every single Cavs game since his freshman season and has averaged 8.5 points, 5.6 assists and 1.6 rebounds per game.
Kyri was a consensus All-American and a semifinalist for the Heisman Trophy last season.
Kyrie is also learning how to manage the pressure of the NBA game, and is working hard to make it work for him.
He’s learned to avoid looking too much like an outsider in front of his teammates, and when he does, he has to be smart about how he presents himself.
With the Cavaliers’ upcoming NBA Finals matchup against the Golden State Warriors looming, Kyri has been learning a new skill set.
This year, Kyra is learning how and when to shoot, what the most important thing is to a shooter is being able to make the right shot at the right time, and what he should be doing if a shooter gets close.
As a young rookie, Kyryri had trouble making the right decisions with the ball.
When Kyrie took to the floor, he needed to look and feel for the ball and make sure he was in position to shoot it.
But this year, he’s making better decisions with it, and his shooting has been more consistent.
Kyries efficiency on the court has increased, as well, and now he can hit open shots.
Even with all of these newfound skills, Kyrio has also had to adapt to the pace of the game.
He’ll get his first taste of the new pace of basketball on Friday night, when the Warriors host the Cleveland Cavs in the Finals for the second time in as many years.
When Kyrie was still a rookie, he was one of the league’s most efficient scorers, but he’s not as efficient when it comes to creating shots off the dribble.
Last season, Kyrey averaged 5.3 points per game off the bounce, but in the playoffs, he only scored 1.3 more points per 36 minutes than he did in the regular season.
That’s because he’s trying to shoot more than the ball on the move, which is the same as going off the pick and roll.
Kyry is also taking more chances, which has been the main challenge.
Kyra was a great scorer, but there were times where he would take more shots than needed, which resulted in the Cavaliers losing games.
Kyrian has now adjusted to the new speed of the ball with ease, and the Cavs have gone 6-0 in games in which he has had a positive field
