Kyrie Irving Lighting It Up, Breaking Ankles At Team USA Workouts

Kyrie Irving spent the weekend out in Las Vegas as Team USA and the Select team came together for the first time for tryouts in advance of the 2012 London Olympics. Reporting witnesses indicated that Irving was fantastic, making a name for himself against the top players in the game -- going up against Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, and even checking Kevin Durant on defense at one point. Yesterday afternoon, video of the workouts surfaced in the form of a highlight mixtape on YouTube and Irving, along with Blake Griffin, was prominently featured throughout the clip. Video wizard CJ Fogler put some of his best moves into gifs, which you can find after the jump:
