Kyrie Irving's Heart-Warming Act To Help George Floyd's Family

Kyrie Irving's Heart-Warming Act To Help George Floyd's Family

Kyrie Irving often gets a bad wrap, but his latest acts proves he's one of sport's good guys.

The Brooklyn Nets star has reportedly bought a house for the family of George Floyd following his death almost 12 months ago.

Floyd was killed by local police officers during an arrest in Minneapolis last year, sparking global protests in the fight against police brutality and racism.

It also saw the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement - something that the NBA and other sporting organisations have continued to support.

But while Floyd's family are still mourning his tragic passing, NBA megastar Irving decided he'd try and lend a helping hand in whichever way he could.

"[Floyd's daughter Gianna is] getting so much love from not just us, but from people all around the world who are showing support," ex-NBA player and family friend Stephen Jackson said on "The Rematch" podcast.

"I'm just continuing to do what I said I was going to do; I said I was going to be my brother's keeper and take care of his daughter and make sure that her next days are her best days. I had a lot of my friends - Kyrie Irving bought them a house. Lil Wayne's manager bought them a Mercedes-Benz. Barbra Streisand gave them stock in Disney.

As for Irving himself, he's still yet to return to the basketball court this season.

The former NBA champion and six-time All Star missed the Nets' opening six games of the campaign, citing personal reasons for his absence.

And according to CBS, Brooklyn fans will have to wait even longer to see the team's newly-formed trio in action with Irving set to miss even more games after he violated the league's health and safety protocols by attending a family birthday event without wearing a mask.

James Harden's arrival from Houston means he'll now team up with Kevin Durant and Irving in Brooklyn.

On paper, it's one of the deadliest triumvirates the NBA has ever seen.

Let's just hope we actually get to see them on the court together at some point in the near future.
