Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving finds a new teammate on the court in Questlove for Nike's latest ad featuring Irving's new sneakers, the Kyrie 3.

The minute-long spot features The Roots instrumentalist, wearing his signature Afro pick, scoring Irving's skills on the hardwood with an intense drum solo. The point guard dribbles and nailing a series of crossovers before shooting his shot, while rocking his signature kicks.

The intricate footwear was "designed for Kyrie Irving’s awe-inspiring agility and speed," according to a release, and should help any aspiring hoop star bring their A-game.

Watch Irving break down how the shoe helps tighten up his performance and the new Nike commercial with Questlove below.
