It has been a bitter divorce between Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers. But one of Irving’s most loyal fans was out in Philly on Friday night cheering him on and rocking his Cavs jersey as Kyrie’s new-look Boston Celtics took on the 76ers at Wells Fargo Center. The Boston point guard rewarded the die-hard Kyrie Irving fan by signing and giving a pair of game-worn shoes to the youngster. A beautiful moment that will surely be etched in this Irving fan’s memory forever.
As far as Irving’s time on the court, he played a highly efficient 25 minutes and scored 21 points by shooting 50% from the field and nailing 5-of-7 three-pointers. The Celtics beat the 76ers by the score of 110-102. Boston is glad to have Kyrie on their squad, unless you are Celtics youngsters Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum and Irving puts on a scoring clinic during practice.
