Nets’ Kyrie Irving reportedly donates $22k to college student’s education

Dec 16, 2022

Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving has been in the news over the past several months for all the wrong reasons.

The NBA suspended Irving in early November after failing to adequately apologize for sharing a film on social media containing antisemitic material.

The seven-time All-Star has since returned to the basketball court, and his generosity off the floor is now making waves.

Destiny Thompson, a sophomore civil engineering major at Howard University, created a GoFundMe in order to raise funds to remain a student at the university.

Thompson, who was looking to raise $6,000, has $23,470 as of this writing after Irving reportedly donated $22,000 to her education.

Thompson took to Facebook while at work to thank Irving for his generosity.
