Kyrie Irving didn’t even suit up for the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night, but he still went home with the biggest prize.
The star point guard was resting for the showdown vs. the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, but apparently felt pretty good about teammate LeBron James’ game earlier that day.
After the 107-93 Cavs win, in which James put up 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his third triple double of the season and 42nd of his career, Irving was seen carrying the jersey James wore during the game.
Pretty sweet keepsake, right?
Anyway, Irving explains it in this Vine published by the NA — saying he called the triple double in the morning shootaround and won the jersey as a result.
