Many believe Kyrie Irving and Julius Erving are somewhat related because of their resemblance, but that is untrue. Kyrie Irving and Julius Erving are not related to each other, so the two being father-son is never an option.

Kyrie Irving is a rising name in the NBA, having won titles like Rookie of the Year and MVP of the All-Star Game in 2014. He currently plays for the Dallas Mavericks after being traded by the Nets on February 6, 2023.

On the other hand, Julius Erving is a legendary retired American basketball player currently involved in philanthropy and community activity.

So, Kyrie and Julius might share an idolizing role instead of a fatherly relationship. Julius mentioned in an interview that Kyrie is one of the current NBA players he loves to watch play.

Also, the surnames of both players do not match. However, some spell Julius’ surname as ‘Irving’ and build a relationship between Kyrie Irving and Julius ‘Irving,’ which is baseless and incorrect.

Kyrie Irving and Julius Erving have distinct family trees and, thus, are not related to one another!

Julius Erving is a father of nine children, but Kyrie’s name is nowhere in the known name of Julius’ children.

He married Turquoise Erving in 1972 and stayed together until 2003. During their relationship, they had four kids: Jazmin, Julius III, Cory, and Cheo.

Among the four, Cory passed away at the age of 19 in 2000 after he went missing for weeks, and another family adopted Cheo.

Still married, Julius had an affair with Samantha Stevenson and had a daughter, Alexandra Stevenson, in 1980. He kept her hidden from the public until she went to the semifinals at Wimbledon in 1999.

The father-daughter did not meet until October 2008, when Stevenson contacted Julius to develop their relationship.

Julius’ affair history does not end here, as he again had a child out of wedlock in 2003 with Dorys Madden. That was when his first marriage ended, and Julius and Turquoise Erving divorced.

Meanwhile, he continued his relationship with Madden, married her in 2008, and had four children: Justin Kangas, Jules, Julieta, and one who remains unknown.

On the other hand, Kyrie Irving is the son of Drederick Irving, a former basketball player, and American expatriate, Elizabeth Irving. He recently converted to Islam and fasted for Ramadan, the holy month of Muslims.
