Kyrie Irving isn’t willing to leave his fans behind as his NBA career progresses.
Upon spotting a young fan wearing his old Cleveland Cavaliers jersey on Friday night in Philadelphia, the Boston Celtics guard gave him an incredible gift: his game-worn sneakers. Cameras were on hand to record Irving’s kind gesture, which the youngster and surrounding fans absolutely loved.
Someone, Irving perhaps, should send that kid a No. 11 Celtics jersey with the star’s name on the back. That, combined with Irving’s sneakers, will make him the boss of the schoolyard basketball court for years to come.
