Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving headlines the newest group of athletes to enroll in "Crossover Into Business," a Harvard Business School course created to help stars from the world of sports maximize their earning potential during and after their playing careers.

On Tuesday, Nicole Yang of Boston.com reported Irving is joined in the class by Denver Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap and former NFL tight end Martellus Bennett, among others. Longtime NBA forwards Chris Bosh and Caron Butler previously completed the program.

Irving has already started to broaden his appeal by taking his Uncle Drew character, which was developed for Pepsi commercials, mainstream with a featured film by the same name released this summer.


In June, Boston.com's Kevin Slane asked the 26-year-old Duke product about his interests away from the basketball court.

"I feel like if I had the same amount of time that I was afforded [for basketball] to learn about business and investments, I think I'd probably be in a pretty different place," he said. "You just gotta learn as best you can on your own time."

Taking a course at Harvard is a significant step in that process.

At the same time, Irving is working back from knee surgery that forced him to miss the latter stages of the 2017-18 season, including the playoffs.

MY NOTE:  I don't know how long this program is but it bodes well for Kyrie staying in Boston.  Not a lock, Bosh and Butler took the course and neither of them were ever Celtics, but it could be a small hometown edge.  Would you want be a Boston Celtic, leave to sign with another team, and then come back to Cambridge for off-season school?

It is always great to see young guys furthering their education and not just sitting back planning to rely on their God given physical talent and athletic skills.
