Kyrie Andrew Irving is an American professional basketball player who plays for the NBA team Cleveland Cavaliers. As a young boy, Irving was inspired by his father who was a professional basketball player himself. Having received both help and inspiration from his father, Irving was very active in sports during his high school days. He studied in Montclair Kimberley Academy and later, St. Patrick High School, being a brilliant player in both schools. His proficiency in basketball got him selected with the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA drafts. Over the course of his career, he has won an NBA championship and has also played for the United States national team, helping the team win the gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics. From 2017 to 2019, he played with the Boston Celtics. He then went on to play for the Dallas Mavericks and Brooklyn Nets. Other than sports, Irving has also made a few television appearances. He made a guest appearance in an episode of ‘Kickin’ It’, a martial arts inspired comedy TV series that aired on Disney XD from 2011 to 2015. Irving kindled controversy in February 2017, after he stated that the Earth is flat, contrary to what most people believe and what modern science claims. Later in an interview, he was less aggressive, and encouraged people to do more research into the topic themselves.
