My Houzz: NBA Player Kyrie Irving Thanks His Dad With a Home Reno

Kyrie Irving has accomplished a lot in the past five years. He was the No. 1 NBA draft pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011 at the age of 19. His first-season performance as point guard for the US basketball team earned him the NBA Rookie of the Year award in 2012. This season Kyrie and his teammates, which include LeBron James, once again battled their way to the NBA championships, this time to defend their 2016 title. The Cavs lost to the Golden State Warriors in Game 5.

In light of all this, there’s one person
to whom he attributes much of his success: his father, Drederick. When Kyrie was 4, his father gave up his own career as a professional basketball player to raise Kyrie and his sister, Asia. He moved the family from Melbourne, Victoria to West Orange, New Jersey in the US, bought a house and, when he wasn’t working, taught his son everything he knew about basketball. “He sacrificed a lot,” Kyrie says. “He really was Superdad.”

An amazing tribute to a father, a real man, solid human being. This (not so much the beautiful home) but when a child's dream is accomplished, the parents dream is accomplished.

Perfect tribute for upcoming Father's Day as well. Juries and Family--a class act. The Designer is top notch.

What a lovely family and beautiful renovation! I felt emotional all through it - maybe it's my Jersey roots. Just even seeing that house and neighborhood reminds me of where I grew up in the 60's. It was a wonderful neighborhood that I left when I was 7 and always missed it and our friends. I've lived in assorted Jersey towns and other states since and still, but when someone asks me where I'm from I say "Jersey, the real world!". I miss it, and especially miss what it was when it was more affordable and less crowded. Congratulations on a job well done, and a beautiful loving act toward your wonderful father!

As you have witnessed, Kyrie and Asia were raised the correct way. His dad taught him the lesson of being hungry as well as humble. This Man shows what being a father is about. Kyrie makes millions of dollars and can buy his dad any house he wanted but his dad brought that house with his own money and in a way it provides pride for dad to say yes I am humble.

This video was not so much about renovations as it was about being able to share decision making. Dad's house was a simple house before the renovation and symbolically, it represented the "hungry" part of Dad's teaching. After the renovation, the house remained simple but it better represents the "humble" part of Dad's teaching. The renovations were not ostentatious in any way. It is apparent that this house was filled with love and direction while the children were growing up and now it will continue to be filled with love and the creation of new memories.

One of the best parts of the video was seeing how both children knew their Dad well and gave a lot of consideration to having him feel at home after the renovations. Every decision made by Kyrie and Asia was honest, kind, thoughtful and meaningful, but especially, familial.

I'm from Ontario, Canada. I have not watched much basketball but I think this Houzz video is by far the best I have seen on Houzz. Thank you for sharing your family story.

This shows that a house does not have to be super large to be a home. Everyone tends to believe that larger means happier. The house is still the same house but the love and humility from this family is priceless that makes it a wonderful home. I have added Dad's mantra to my list of mantras but I will admit that this mantra, Hungry & Humble, comes in at the top of the list. It is so simple, powerful, yet says everything you need for life wrapped in two words.

I know a lot of us only clicked on this video just wanting to see the renovation in itself however, we ALL clearly are walking away with so much more. By far, my overall favorite video because of the message it sent though they probably don't realize they were sending. Hats off to Dad, as he definitely did an AWESOME job raising his kids. What an example he himself is, to want to remain in his home that he raised his kids in. It would have been so easy, to accept an ostentatious new home from his son, but again we were schooled on where they get their HUMBLENESS from. SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!!

You had done an amazing job listening to the family and portraits the "hungry & humble" through every major and minor details in this transformation. I am sure this is a well worth of the 2 months waiting to the completion of this renovation.

Loved watching this transformation and the exchange of love within that sweet family....Heartwarming and a great reminder of the importance of the character trait: Humility! May we all grow stronger in humility.

It was wonderful see the personal side of Irvine. I loved what he did for his superdad. I'm from New Jersey, and lived in West Orange, NJ for 5 years. Loved the transformation, and kudos to the designer.

This was so touching, to not only see how much this Father gave up for his children but that his children are aware of his sacrifices. What a beautiful thing to do for your Dad, Kyrie & Asia!!

Beautiful job, Kyrie! Even though I am a huge Warriors fan, much respect to you for the way you respect your Dad's wishes and doing something really great. Would have loved to do something like this for my parents when they were alive. Managed to afford to buy them a new car, so I got part way there. Good luck on your new team, (but not too much luck :) ). All the best!

I never knew about Kyrie Irving until I saw this video. What a beautiful relationship he has with his Dad. He obviously respects and loves his Dad. I am very glad that I viewed this video. Kudos Irving family. You are all role models. Thank you. P.S. The remodel was beautiful. Only thing I would change is the stairs up and down between the kitchen and living room; otherwise great!

I grew up with my dad as a single parent and I think my dad is a superman too! What an incredible way to say thank you. I would love to do something as wonderful for my dad too. Well done, Kyrie!

Of all the Reno/makeover, this is one is my favorite! The only thing I didn't like, was the navy print rug in living room. :)

I'm forced to change my home due to the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we had 41+ inches of standing water in our home for at least 9 days; in looking outside the usual resources for fresh ideas I found houzz to be a wonderful source. I just viewed what Kyrie and Asia did for their day and I'm even more inspired to knock down some walls and introduce a new floor plan.

What a wonderful story. The re-design was beautiful but what was even more beautiful to see was the love the Irving family has for one another.

That was such a wonderful thing that you and your sister did for your father. The house was nice before you did the renovations and then after the renovations the house was fantastic looking and a lot bigger in size you all did an awesome job. And then to see the emotions from each one of you was such an awesome thing you could really see the love between the three of you I hope your father enjoys every moment of his new home and that he will have even more family gatherings and parties. God bless you all
