Irving was born on March 23rd March 1992 in Melbourne, Australia. When he was only two years old, he moved back to the United States along with his two sisters. His father was a talented basketball player in his time and played college basketball at Boston University. When he was four years old, his mother died of an illness. Because of this, his aunts played a major role in his upbringing. After moving back to the United States, he grew up in West Orange, New Jersey. From a very young age, he became convinced that he would one day play in the NBA. He trained often at Boston University and later on, he received a scholarship to the school.
It was clear that Irving was a promising basketball player during high school. After excelling for his high school team, he gradually earned a spot on the Junior National Select team. He won a scholarship to Boston University, & elected to attend Duke University instead.
In 2011, Irving entered the NBA draft and was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Next season, he suffered another major setback when he broke his hand after hitting it against a wall in frustration during practice. Although the surgery on his hand was successful, he returned to the team only to injure his finger at the start of the season.
After taking three weeks off he returned to the team once again and showed his true potential. He scored 41 points against the New York Knicks. This earned him a spot in the All-Star team for the first time. The 2014-2015 season was especially impressive for him as he continued to perform feats like scoring 55 points against Portland. The kneecap injury proved to be serious, and he had to stop playing for 3 to 4 months. The Cavaliers gradually lost the finals as well.
Irving rejoined the team late into the 2015-2016 season & quickly made his presence known. After playing well throughout the season, the Cavaliers met the Golden State Warriors in the finals once again. After a long series, the Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit to win the finals 4-3. Although he played extremely well during the next season, the Cavaliers eventually lost against the Golden State Warriors during the 2016-2017 season.
The 2018-2019 season proved to be a major turning point for him as he requested to be traded. His injury-related issues would again cause him to miss the end of his season. Surgery on his left knee forced him to rest for a period of 5 months. He was still able to play during the season-opener in 2018-2019. He continued his run of high-scoring achievement throughout that season and became even better at providing assists.
In 2019, he signed with the Brooklyn Nets as a free agent. He started his Nets career with 50 points on his debut against the Timberwolves. Unfortunately, injury problems struck again, as he suffered a right shoulder injury that caused him to miss 26 games. After his return in 2020, he returned to peak form almost instantly, scoring 54 points against the Chicago Bulls. The season ended with injury woes once again, as surgery was required for his injured shoulder.
