Kyrie Irving is a basketball player who is Australian-American and has a net worth of $90 million. He won one championship and was named to the NBA All-Star Team throughout his career.
Irving also owns a gold medal from the Olympics and has a net worth of hundreds of millions of dollars from his salary and endorsements. Later in the essay, I’ll go through these earnings in more detail.
Kyrie Irving was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA draft in 2011. During his rookie season, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team for his efforts.
Irving suffered another major setback the following season when he broke his hand during practice after hitting it against a wall in frustration. Despite the fact that his hand surgery went well, he returned to the squad only to damage his finger early in the season.
He returned to the squad after a three-week layoff to recuperate and displayed his actual potential by scoring 41 points against the New York Knicks. For the first time, he was named to the All-Star squad. Throughout the 2013-2014 season, he continued to impress, earning him a lucrative contract deal with the Cavaliers.
Irving’s 2014-2015 season was particularly outstanding, as he proceeded to achieve exploits such as scoring 55 points versus Portland. The season, however, came to an end when he hurt his knee in Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors. Irving had to sit out for three to four months due to a significant kneecap injury. The Cavaliers also went on to lose in the finals.
Irving returned to the squad late in the 2015-2016 season, but he had an immediate impact. The Cavaliers faced the Golden State Warriors in the finals for the second year in a row after playing well throughout the season. The Cavaliers fought back from a 3-1 deficit to win the finals 4-3 after a difficult series.
Despite Irving’s outstanding performance the next season, the Cavaliers were defeated by the Golden State Warriors in the 2016-2017 season. He also assisted the United States of America Basketball Team in winning the gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Kyrie Irving’s request to be traded during the 2018-2019 season proved to be a crucial turning point in his career. His request was granted by the Cavaliers, and he was assigned to the Boston Celtics. He made an immediate effect on his new squad, helping them win for the first time since 2011 against the San Antonio Spurs.
Injury-related issues, on the other hand, would force Irving to miss the remainder of the season. He had to rest for 5 months after surgery on his left knee. Despite this, Irving was able to play in the season opening for the 2018-2019 season. Throughout the season, he extended his streak of high-scoring success and improved his assist-giving abilities.
Irving signed as a free agent with the Brooklyn Nets in 2019. He scored a career-high 50 points in his Nets debut against the Timberwolves. Unfortunately, Irving’s injury woes continued, as he was sidelined for 26 games due to a right shoulder ailment.
Irving returned to form nearly immediately upon his comeback in 2020, scoring 54 points against the Chicago Bulls. However, the season came to an end with injury difficulties once again, as his damaged shoulder necessitated surgery.
Irving appeared in a series of Pepsi Max commercials in 2012 as Uncle Drew. He wrote and directed episodes 2 and 3, in which he co-starred with Bill Russell and Kevin Love, as well as episode 3 with Nate Robinson and Maya Moore.
Irving also wrote and directed episode 4 of “Uncle Drew,” which he co-starred in alongside Baron Davis, J. B. Smoove, and Ray Allen and was released in November 2015. In 2017, the Uncle Drew commercial series was turned into a skit set inside an old school diner, with Pepsi in its current design kept in a fridge with its vintage logo.
Irving has also starred as the character in a feature film, Uncle Drew, which also features former NBA stars, and was released in June 2018.
Irving guest starred on Family Guy in the season 17 (2018) episode “Big Trouble in Little Quahog” and appeared on an episode of the Disney XD comedy Kickin’ It in 2012.
