Who is her father Kyrie?

American-Australian professional basketball player and actor Kyrie Andrew Irving was born under the zodiac sign Aries on 23 March 1992, in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. He was only 19 when he was chosen by the Cleveland Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 National Basketball Association (NBA) Draft, and Kyrie’s since been a three-time member of the ALL-NBA Team and an eight-time All-Star; since 2023, he’s been playing for the Dallas Mavericks of the NBA.

For the first two years of his life, Kyrie was raised in Melbourne alongside his younger sister London and older sister Asia, by their American parents Elizabeth (nee Larson) and Drederick Irving; Drederick was also a professional basketball player, and moved his family to Australia from Boston, Massachusetts after he was hired to play in the South East Australian Basketball League (SEABL). Kyrie was four when his African-American mother died of an illness, and his father went on to marry his second wife Shetellia Riley, who’s today Kyrie’s agent.

Kyrie was then raised in West Orange, New Jersey and studied at Montclair Kimberley Academy; he was one of the best basketball players at the school, which led him to transfer to St. Patrick High School in search of a bigger challenge. He was selected to the Junior National Select Team on 19 January 2010, and then also to the Jordan Brand Classic and McDonald’s All-American Game teams; Kyrie was also a member of the team which won gold at the 2010 FIBA Americas Under-18 Championship.

His college career was rather brief. Kyrie played for the Duke Blue Devils under legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski during the 2010-2011 season and despite appearing in only 11 games due to a toe injury, he left an indelible mark on college basketball. In his debut game against Princeton, Kyrie scored 17 points and displayed his exceptional ball-handling and court vision; his ability to control the game and make plays immediately caught the attention of fans and analysts alike. His standout performance against Michigan State further solidified his status as one of the best talents in college basketball; Kyrie led Duke to victory by scoring 31 points.

Despite his short college stint, his talent was undeniable; Kyrie averaged 17.5 points, 4.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game while shooting an impressive 53.2% from the field and 46.2% from three-point range. His impact on the college court earned him numerous accolades, including ACC Rookie of the Year honors and a spot on the All-ACC First Team.

Mostly because of his early success, Kyrie chose not to continue his college basketball career but to drop out and make himself eligible for the 2011 NBA Draft, selected by the Cavaliers; he quickly went on to earn NBA Rookie of the Year honors for the 2011-2012 season.

One of the defining moments of Kyrie’s early NBA career came in the 2016 NBA Finals; despite facing the formidable Golden State Warriors, he delivered a series of spectacular performances, including a crucial game-winning three-pointer in Game 7 to help lead the Cavaliers to their first NBA championship in franchise history.

Following his success with the Cavaliers, Kyrie continued to excel after joining the Boston Celtics in 2017; he embraced the leadership role and played a pivotal role in guiding the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals in the 2017-2018 season.

In 2019, he signed with the Brooklyn Nets, teaming up with fellow superstar Kevin Durant to form a formidable duo; despite facing setbacks due to injuries, Kyrie remained a dominant force on the court, consistently delivering stellar performances when healthy.

Beyond his on-court achievements, Kyrie’s also been involved in various philanthropic endeavors and social causes; he’s used his popularity to advocate for social justice issues, including racial equality and police reform. He’s also donated money to charitable organizations and initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life of underprivileged children.

Irving has also pursued interests outside of basketball, including acting and music. He has nine acting credits, and is perhaps known best for starring in the title role of the 2018 sports comedy film “Uncle Drew”, directed by Charles Stone III, and which also starred Shaquille O’Neal and Lil Rel Howery. The film follows a man who’s dreaming about winning the Rucker Classic street ball tournament; it won three of its four award nominations.

Some of Kyrie’s most recent roles have been in the 2014 short comedy film “Uncle Drew: Chapter 4”, the 2016 episode “Charlie Ball” of the animated short adventure series “We Bare Bears” (voice role), and the 2018 episode “Big Trouble in Little Quahog” of the animated comedy series “Family Guy” (voice role).
