Personal Trainer

Irving is probably the most skilled point guard alongside Stephen Curry in the last few years. His versatility on the court is what makes everyone wonder, how someone can be so skillful with the ball. His shooting ability is so smooth, which speaks for the fact that he won the NBA three point shootout in 2013. He made the biggest improvement, when he trained with one of the best basketball skill trainers in the world, Micah Lancaster and his company I’m Possible Training.
