Kyrie Irving Makes NBA History, Joins 50-40-90 Club

Brooklyn Nets superstar guard Kyrie Irving became the 9th player in NBA history to join the exclusive 50-40-90 club as he helped lead his team to a 123-109 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The former #1 overall draft pick out of Duke University joins the famous club after shooting 50.6% from the field, 40.2% from three, and 90.2% from the free-throw line. The only downfall here is the fact he appeared in only 54 games this season, but let's not try and take anything away from Irving's accomplishments.

His teammate and close friend Kevin Durant witnessed the work day in and day out and had this to say about Irving's record season:

Phenomenal season from Ky. He's a guy who can get it from anywhere on the floor at any time at that size is remarkable. Point guards that get 50-40-90 is just so much more impressive to me. I'm very happy for Kyrie, and I'm sure this won't be his last time.

Irving's current head coach Steve Nash is one of the other players in NBA history to pull off the feat, Nash actually hit the mark four times in his career which is an NBA record. On Sunday Irving finished with 17 points, six rebounds, three steals, three blocks and two assists as his team closed out their regular season.

Congrats to Kyrie on an amazing season!
