Irving Chipping In


Kyrie Irving Committed $1.5 million to Supplement WNBA Player Income

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving has seen his name in the news a plethora of times over the past little bit and he’s in the news once again.

The superstar point guard has committed $1.5 million to supplement the salaries of the WNBA players who opted out of the season. The funds will come from the KAI Empowerment Initiative that Irving launched on Monday. Additionally, he will provide players with a financial literacy program created by UBS.

“Whether a person decided to fight for social justice, play basketball, focus on physical or mental health, or simply connect with their families, this initiative can hopefully support their priorities and decisions,” Irving said in a statement.

A powerful and honourable decision, Irving connected with several WNBA players during the process to make the initiative come to life. The top annual salary in the league is a little bit over $200,000, meaning that Irving’s decision will go a long way in helping a number of WNBA players.

Hats off to Kyrie!
