Kyrie Irving made one young fan’s night following the Boston Celtics’ pre-season win in Philadelphia Friday, October 6 (Saturday Manila time).

Irving, who scored 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting in the 110-102 victory over the 76ers, spotted the youngster in one of the first several rows wearing Irving’s Cleveland Cavaliers jersey. He rewarded the fan’s support by handing him his game-worn Nike Kyrie 3 shoes, autographing them both.


After 3 straight seasons in the NBA Finals alongside LeBron James, Irving came over to Bean Town in a trade that sent Isaiah Thomas to Cleveland. The Celtics also acquired Gordon Hayward from free agency, solidifying a squad which is expected to be a strong force in the East. – Rappler.com
