Kyrie Irving has earned himself a reputation for being among the most skilled guards to have ever graced the game. Be it his smooth finishes at the rim with some English, or his crafty hesi moves- Irving’s game surely is a visual treat to a viewer. The 6’2 guard hit the go-ahead three-pointer on Stephen Curry in the 2016 NBA Finals and won the coveted Larry O’Brien trophy along with LeBron James for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Irving made another visit to the finals in 2017 but could not get past the Golden State Warriors, and was dealt away to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas. After spending 2 years at Boston, he signed with the Brooklyn Nets in 2019.

Irving’s tenure with the Nets was not without external noise and drama. From repeated trade requests to injuries to absurd suspensions, Irving has faced them all. Eventually, in February 2023, the point guard was traded away to the Dallas Mavericks. Irving has played a total of 662 games in his career, and has averaged 23.4 points per game at an efficiency of 47.2 % and a three-point percentage of 39.3.
