Prior to the Celtics’ match against Houston on Thursday night, Kyrie Irving took a break from concocting his next great conspiracy theory to gift one man a very generous late Christmas gift.
In a video by TMZ Sports, we see the Boston star empty his pockets of cash to a homeless man on his way back to the team bus.
After realizing what just happened, the man goes crazy with joy, jumping and running around excitedly until the video comes to an end.
This season, Irving is due to make around $20 million, so $240 isn’t exactly going to make a dent. Nevertheless, it was an awesome display of kindness by one of the league’s most popular players. Just goes to show how much of an impact NBA players can make with, what is to them, a small sacrifice.
Let’s hope other stars see this example and join in on the giving mood this holiday season.
