The Brooklyn Nets point guard was welcomed by some young fans, whom he then chopped it up with. He went beyond that and ended up giving the kids some money, too. TMZ caught the moment on camera, where Irving looks to be handing out $100 bills to the group.
After giving away the money he had in his hand, Irving then asked who’s in charge of the kids. An adult answered off-camera, which prompted the basketball star to give away what the outlet reported was more than just $100, but “a stack” of bills. Irving told the adult to take care of the kids with it.
The Nets won against the Bulls by a small margin. Irving sat out due to a shoulder injury which he's been struggling with all week. He was listed as questionable after the Nets played the Denver Nuggets on Thursday.
“He has played through some pain, obviously,” Coach Kenny Atkinson told the Boston Globe. “We just felt it was best that he doesn’t play today to take care of it and get healthy for when we get home.”
