Kyrie Irving surprises his pops by blessing him with a brand new crib
Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving and his dad have a special relationship.
The elder Irving, Drederick, was a professional basketball player in Australia and introduced his son to the game at a young age.
Kyrie lost his mother at a young age, forcing Drederick to give up his career overseas to raise Kyrie and his two sisters.
The former Duke star often credits his father when asked about where he learned to finish at the rim with such ease, saying the hours he spent in the driveway with his dad refined those skills.
Next season, Drederick will be watching his son battle on the hardwood from the comfort of a newly-renovated home.
In an emotional online episode of ‘My Houzz‘, Kyrie surprised his dad with the remodeled home, noting that the new modern upgrades made the home more functional.
Despite his son’s success, Drederick has stayed in the same North New Jersey home that he raised his children in.
“It’s his first house,” Irving said in the video.
“I think he wants it to be his only house. This is where I grew up, and I respect him even more for wanting to keep it. But I know there’s always things he wants to improve on in the house.”
Kyrie may have come up short in The Finals, but he definitely scored big with this Father’s Day gift.
