Here's How Much Kyrie Irving Is Really Worth

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving is a professional athlete who regularly speaks out about racial injustice and environmental issues on his social media accounts and in public appearances. In February 2021, he made headlines when he began advocating for the NBA to make a statement by changing its logo. Yahoo! Sports reported that he began advocating for the league to design the silhouette in its logo on a photo of legendary Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant, who died in January 2020 when a helicopter he was riding in with his daughter and seven other people crashed near L.A. in extremely foggy conditions. "Kobe Bryant. Logo. Yes. It needs to happen," Irving said. "I don't care what anyone says. Black kings built the league. It's exactly what I meant. Exactly what I said."

With so much attention on Irving as support for changing the logo grows — one online petition has over 3.5 million signatures — people have their eyes on him, curious about who he really is. To answer one question: Let's take a look into Kyrie Irving's net worth and see just how much the guy pulls in for shooting hoops.

Kyrie Irving is worth a whole lot of money

Kyrie Irving is making bank off basketball these days, and he's definitely worth the money. He won an NBA championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, and is a six-time NBA All-Star. According to Yahoo! Finance, he's worth a whopping $90 million, and there's much more where that came from. He signed a four-year, $136-million contract with the Brooklyn Nets in 2019. In the 2020-2021 season alone, he pulled in a smooth $31.7 million. Not too shabby during the pandemic. On top of what he earns from the Nets, Irving also has a pretty sweet deal with Nike. That contract brings in $11 million.

But he's not keeping all that dough to himself. Republic World reported in July 2020 Irving used $1.5 million of it to start a fund to support players in the WNBA who were opting out of that league's 2020 season due to health and safety concerns due to the coronavirus pandemic, social justice issues, or other personal reasons.
