Report: Kyrie Irving Will Play For Mike Krzyzewski And USA Basketball In The Summer Olympics

Many of the top basketball players in the country have turned down the opportunity to play in this summer's Olympics, but one of the heroes of the NBA Finals will be there to run the point. Kyrie Irving has reportedly accepted an invitation to play for his former collegiate coach, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, for Team USA in Brazil.

Team USA was in dire need of a point guard, so this is very good news for Coach K and his staff. He was the MVP of the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup, averaging 12.1 points and 3.6 assists through the tournament.
