Kyrie Irving may be criticized by people who don't know him, but multiple times the All-Star has showed his human side, and proved everyone wrong.
The Brooklyn Nets star ended up 2020 the right way. Not only is he playing great basketball, but also doing work off the court.
Irving paid off the college tuition of nine students from an HBCU (Lincoln University) on December 10 as part of his foundation’s 11 days of giving in December.

During the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown, the Nets guard also donated $523,000 to combat food insecurity and to the NYC Food Bank.
Sources have stated that he is also producing a special for Breonna Taylor titled 'Say Her Name', in honor of the girl who was fatally shot by the Louisville Metro Police Department.
