15 Sons Who Outshined Their Athlete Dads

Kyrie Irving

Father: Drederick Irving
Son's Stats: 944 PTS 18.5 PPG 3.7 RPG 5.4 APG 1.1 SPG, 2012 Rookie of the Year
Father's Stats: N/A (played overseas)

Kyrie's dad, Drederick, played in Australia for the Bulleen Boomers for a couple years. Dre was also Boston U's all-time leading scorer (1,931 career points), once upon a time. Kyrie went to basketball powerhouse St. Patrick's High School and starred at Duke for a season that was mostly lost to injury. He still felt like he was good enough for the NBA and with a weak draft class, he was all but guaranteed to be the first pick. Kyrie won Rookie of the Year honors with the Cleveland Cavs, helping the fanbase to get over LeBron. He's a shoot-first point guard, but isn't selfish. He just likes to take matters into his own hands. All signs poing to Kyrie having a lengthy and memorable NBA career.
