Duke Basketball: Duke Posts Cool Video Tribute To Kyrie Irving On Instagram

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been without the services of star point guard Kyrie Irving for the last four games of the 2015 NBA Finals after Irving broke his kneecap in Game 1 of the series against the Golden State Warriors. His absence has been felt by the undermanned Cavs, who trail the Warriors three games to two heading into tonight's Game 6.

Injuries have plagued Irving dating back to his lone season at Duke in 2010-11, when a toe injury knocked him out of action for much of the season. This afternoon, the Duke basketball Instagram account released a neat tribute video for Irving as he recovers from yet another setback.

The video features highlight clips of Irving from his Blue Devil days mixed with similar highlights from this year in Cleveland. Kanye West's "Diamonds From Sierra Leone" serves as the background track.
