Kyrie Irving says Cavs ‘won’t back down’ when it comes to defending their title

CLEVELAND, Ohio– In less than two weeks, the Cleveland Cavaliers begin a new season, after the season no one will ever forget.

The NBA champions know it won’t be easy, but they will do whatever it takes to defend their title.

In a new NBA spot, called “29,” Kyrie Irving says there are 29 teams in the way again. “Winning was a challenge, but repeating will be, too,” Irving says. “They’ve all come back stronger, more determined, more experienced and ready.”

But, make no mistake about it: “They won’t back down, but neither will we.”

The Cavaliers begin their season on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at Quicken Loans Arena.
