Is the point guard, kyrie erving, julius erving's son?

No. Point Guard Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers is not the son of former basketball great Julius Erving. Kyrie Irving's father is former Australian professional basketball player Drederick Irving.

He raised Kyrie as a single parent after his wife Elizabeth died when Kyrie was just four (Elizabeth Irving was also a standout athlete and competitive volleyball player in college). Dad served as Kyrie’s first basketball coach and the two are exceptionally close.

Kyrie Irving was born on March 23, 1992 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, but moved to New Jersey at the age of 2 and grew up there.

Julius Erving fathered eight children, four of them with his ex-wife of 30 years Turqoise Erving. He doesn't have a son who plays professional basketball, but his daughter Alexandra Stevenson became a professional tennis player.

Kyrie Irving was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers as the number one overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft. 2012's achievements included the All-Rookie First Team, Rookie of the Year, and the Rising Stars Challenge MVP. In 2013 he won the NBA Three-Point Shootout.
