This cant be true[edit]

The article says:

"Irving was born in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia where his father, Drederick Irving, played professional basketball for the Bulleen Boomers."

This cant be true, can it? the Bulleen Boomers are a woman's team. Is his father a transvestite? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.242.167.154 (talk) 05:40, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

It is true. In Australia, the majority of the organizations have both mens/womens or boys/girls teams with matching names. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 153.48.247.250 (talk) 19:48, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Minor Edit[edit]

Kyrie Irving was on the losing team, Team Shaq, in the Rising Stars Challenge. [1] Also, in the previous note on Irving's page, it reads as if Bonner scored 23 points. Perhaps the sentence could use some clarification.

I made a few fixes. In addition, the Rising Stars game is no longer a rookies vs. sophomores game; each team has a mix of both rookies and sophomores. Zagalejo^^^ 01:41, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Kyrie Irving's personal life reads like a date profile[edit]

Who really cares that kyrie irving likes reading? And even if he is, he's probably reading harry potter or hunger games.

What is more important is that he posed with two black strippers on Christmas, now that is worth putting under personal life.

Kyrie Irving has been named the USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year (2014), but the achievement has not been placed under his "Career highlights and awards section." While it is mentioned on Irving's wiki under "International career, it should be under his achievements, as it appears for previous winners such as LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
