I love the Nike Kyrie 2 Kyrie-Oke. Ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. I think the shoe is perfectly fine and is a great entry into the still-growing Kyrie 2 line, but I think the nickname is an amazing play on words that really hasn’t gotten enough love in the sneaker community. Maybe it’s because my love of slightly corny wordplay is right up my alley while the 8,592,483rd Crying MJ meme is breaking my will to live (just kidding, they’re both great in their own way), but I thought this commercial that features Kyrie’s “hit” R&B album was priceless.

Those titles? Genius.
So Kyrie then asked his Twitter followers to come up with their own names using the Kyrie pun. The results were beautiful and beautifully awful like the internet is wont to do. Sometimes this job just writes itself. Here are some of our favorites as we check out the Best and Worst Kyrie-Oke Puns.
