Kyrie Irving Buys George Floyd's Family a Home

Irving, 27, has purchased a home for the family of George Floyd, according to Stephen Jackson, a former National Basketball Association player and one of Floyd's best friends who shared the news on social media.

This is but one of a recent succession of philanthropic acts by Irving that have managed to attract only a fraction of the media attention his unexplained absence from the Brooklyn Nets has produced.

When he's not paying for college students' tuition or purchasing houses for the families of victims of police brutality, he's offering financial assistance to WNBA players or partnering with Feed America to "to help families who are struggling to put meals on the table amid the COVID-19 pandemic".

"She's getting so much love, from not just us, but from people all around the world who are showing support", Jackson said. A lot of my friends [have helped]. Lil Wayne's manager bought them a Mercedes Benz. "I think God has definitely blessed her and she's doing the best she's ever done". "Barbra Streisand gave them stock in Disney", Jackson said.

This is just the latest in a number of activist things Irving has done over the past couple of months.

Irving was spotted during a game against the Denver Nuggets in a Zoom meeting for Democratic Manhattan district attorney candidate Tahanie Aboushi. His death launched numerous riots across the nation and has been a focal point for social justice activism by the Black Lives Matter movement and others.
