Kyrie Irving’s potential NBA championship win with the Dallas Mavericks would have a profound impact on the league, this is according to Celtics legend Kevin Garnett.

Kevin Garnett emphasized that an NBA title would put Irving in a new conversation, one that he deserves to be in. The Celtics legend also highlighted Luka Doncic’s impressive track record where he won a championship in Europe, and believes that a championship win with the Mavericks would activate Luka Doncic and take his game to new heights.

It not only gives Kyrie a new light but it takes him out of the old one… I think since he left Cleveland, he's been on this journey, and yeah it's brought him here. They [Dallas Mavericks] win this, I think if the Mavs win this, not only, it kind of seize or we kind of put Kyrie in another conversation in which he belongs. But it also activates Luka now. Luka when he was young, won in his league that he was in. He won early… The Mavs win this motherf****, boy, that's gonna shake the league.
