A former MaxPreps National Freshman of the Year, Kyree Walker had been changing the game since eighth grade. Walker first drew national attention for his slam dunks in highlight videos in middle school and went on to forego college basketball. Signing up instead for Chameleon BX, a 12-month intense personalized training program ahead of the 2021 NBA draft.
In May, Walker signed with the Washington Wizards to play in their Summer League this August. Kyree has had a difficult journey after losing his grandfather in 2018 and dealing with his mother’s breast cancer diagnosis in the same year. Having taken a break from basketball since last playing at Hillcrest Prep two years ago, there were doubts as to whether Kyree would even get drafted this season.
To celebrate Kyree’s success and his perseverance in his NBA career, we teamed up with him at Private Label. Being able to travel with style and ease is half the battle, which is why Private Label, like Kyree, have changed the game.
Our basketball duffle bags keep the kit organized with specialized compartments for basketballs, sneakers and clothes. Storage pockets inside and outside save room for smaller accessories - like headphones, sunglasses and wallets! Kyree himself loves the flexibility these bags give him - on and off-court. Check out his Instagram post about it here, and give him a follow!
A sneaker case keeps the player’s shoes protected whilst on the move and as with all Private Label bags, our backpacks are TSA compliant & Carry-On approved as a “personal item”. Players can travel light and board planes with both their backpack and duffle bag.
When Kyree was asked about his new signing, he said he was “excited to go out there and do what I love.” We agree there is nothing more exciting than doing what you love. We can’t wait to see what you can do Kyree! On behalf of all of us at Private Label, good luck!
