Carmelo and Kyrie Are Just As Good at Pickup Basketball as You Would Guess (Video)

People talk about how pickup ball is a different type of game, but I’d hazard a guess that anyone good enough to play in the NBA is good enough to ball on a street court.

Kyrie Irving and Carmelo Anthony’s recent outing during a pickup game supports that assertion.

They looked…good. Granted, they were in a gym and not outdoors, but…come on. They’re awesome. This took place at UCLA, and I’m sure the bystanders were beside themselves when these two pulled up.

Who’s that joining the fray? Why it’s Jimmy Butler in the white shirt squaring off against Kyrie and Carmelo’s team!

Should we read into this regarding possible moves this off-season?

Nope. But we probably will anyway.
