Kyrie Irving Surprises His Father with Home Renovation

Kyrie Irving went above and beyond giving his dad just a tie for Father's Day. 

The Cleveland Cavaliers star appeared on the online series My Houzz with his sister, Asia, to redecorate his father's home. Drederick Irving still lives in their childhood house in West Orange, New Jersey, so his 25-year-old son decided he deserved some upgrades.

"He sacrificed a lot," Irving said about his father. "Ultimately gave up his dream to play basketball professionally [to support the family]."

With help from a professional, the Irving siblings modernized their dad's home. It's a blast for those who enjoy watching people do work they put off because they don't have the time, energy and/or resources. 

While showing off the renovations, Irving was also surprised by a new trophy room Asia designed. He teared up when realizing his father kept every trophy they earned.

They're not just childhood mementos either, as the NBA guard gave Drederick his 2011-12 Rookie of the Year and 2013-14 All-Star Game MVP trophies as well as his 2015-16 championship ring as tokens of appreciation.

The gift seemed to be a major success.

"I'm just so grateful for Asia and Kyrie," Drederick said. "Just a good feeling as a parent to know your kids have your back and they think about you. It's just a nice gesture on their part."
