Uncle Drew Born in Melbourne? Yes Kyrie Irving of the Boston Celtics (Uncle Drew) was born in Melbourne in 1992.

Irving’s father played for the Boomers and as a young boy he lived in Kew until at 2 years old he returned to the US. His mother was a half Sioux Indian who very unfortunately died when Kyrie was only 4 years old. Kyrie holds dual citizenship – both US and Australian.

Basketball has long held a premium spot in Australian sport. During the 1980s and 1990s many American professional NBA players were recruited for the local competitions. People like Bob Ansett of the then Budget Rent-a-Car company put millions into the sport.

After a fairly dormant period Basketball in Australia is experiencing a strong renaissance. In Victoria, in particular the State Government has funded dual school/community courts through its Public Private Partnership program. This initiative is drawing thousands more children, adolescents and their parents into the game.
