Why Kyrie Irving’s signature sneaker line with Nike is reportedly in danger of ending soon

To be a Nike signature shoe athlete is some pretty rarified air. There just generally aren’t that many names to choose from in the history of NBA basketball.

In the early 2000s and early in the 2010s, there were only 3 names on Nike’s signature basketball roster: LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant.

Kyrie Irving was the first to join those three when he got his initial signature model in 2014 and he’s been a Nike athlete ever since. That all might be coming to an end after this season, according to the latest from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne.

Irving’s signature line with Nike might be done.
