Kyrie Irving Hires His Stepmom Shetellia Riley Irving, Reportedly Making Her The Only Black Female NBA Agent

The historic news isn’t Irving’s first instance of betting on Black women in sports.

AfroTech previously shared that he teamed up with WNBA players Natasha Cloud and Jewell Loyd to discuss whether or not they’d play in the 2020 season. To support, Irving gave $1.5 million from his KAI Empowerment Initiative to WNBA players who opted out of playing.

“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 expressed in a statement.
