Watch Kyrie Irving Dance Around Wildly With South African School Children

Kyrie Irving is one of the best young players in the NBA. In fact, he was the first overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2011 NBA Draft and has been everything the organization has hoped he would be and probably even more. He recently traveled to South Africa with UNICEF to boost the morale of South African school children with his special gift.

That special gift, while you might think I’m talking about basketball, is dancing. While Irving is one of the best basketball players in the world, he is also a pretty solid dancer — even if he was trying to be goofy.

Watch Irving dance with South African school children in a recent visit to an elementary school:

As you can see, the kids loved the whole routine and you could tell that Irving loved it, too. There’s nothing he would rather be doing in the offseason than helping young children around the world, putting smiles on their faces.

Besides being one of the best citizens of the world after giving back to the global community, Irving is pretty good on the hardwood with a basketball in his hands. The third-year player averages 20.6 points and 5.7 assists per game in his first two seasons while making an NBA All-Star Game as well.

It seems like Irving is making the most of his offseason by putting a smile on his face and a pep in his step in order to make other people smile and forget about all the troubles of the world.

Well done, Kyrie.
