Is the point guard, kyrie erving, julius erving's son?
No. Cleveland Cavaliers guard, Kyrie Irving, is not the son of former NBA great Julius Erving. Kyrie Irving's father is former Australian professional basketball player Drederick Irving.
Kyrie's mother, Elizabeth (who was a standout athlete herself), died when Kyrie was just four. Since then, dad Drederick raised him as a single parent and served as Kyrie’s first basketball coach.
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 8 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.
