Kyrie Irving in Atlanta ... for AEBL playoffs

Kyrie Irving was in Atlanta on Sunday.

It’s not what you think.

The Cavaliers’ All-Star point guard, who recently requested a trade, was part of the championship winning team in the Atlanta Entertainment Basketball League on Sunday.

Irving was joined by fellow NBA players Lou Williams and Iman Shumpert in a 104-102 overtime victory over The Skill Factory in the pro-am summer league.

Williams, the South Gwinnett High product and current Clipper, has been an AEBL regular over the past several years.

A clean-shaven Irving can be seen in the above photo, back center, raising his index finger in the No. 1 sign.

The Skill Factory featured NBA players and former Hawks Shelvin Mack and Mike Scott.
