In the video, Irving recalled how he started his passion for basketball. “It was fourth grade, I just got done watching the finals and I knew that this is a dream that I want to fulfill. I had to manifest it. I had to go get it. I had to put in my time, I had to put in my hours. I had to relentlessly work on a craft, and do it with a passion and love that no one could take away,” he said as the song of fellow Brooklyn native Jay-Z played in the background.
