Kyrie Irving's Suburban Cleveland Home (Photos)
Without question, the dominant storyline of the very early NBA season involves LeBron James' return to Cleveland and the Cavaliers subsequent slow start. One of the key figures on the Cavs' suddenly stacked roster is fourth year guard Kyrie Irving. Entering Friday's game at Denver, the 2011 first overall pick is averaging 22.0 points, 3.8 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game.
Away from the hardwood, the 22-year-old has set up a nice life for himself, based largely on his recently signed 5-year/$90 million contract.
The Duke alum is now the owner of a 5,808-square-foot home, in the western Cleveland suburb of Westlake. Built in 2007, the 5-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom mansion features a home theater, fitness room, trophy room, wet bar and music studio.
The $800,000 abode sits 15 miles west of Quicken Loans Arena (Cavs downtown Cleveland home venue) and 16 miles northwest of the team's Independence (OH) practice facility.
Amazingly, Irving is the third professional athlete to own this property. Irving purchased the home from former Cavs guard Daniel Gibson, with former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. also once calling the place home.
