Family Displays Son's Body Playing NBA2K, Wearing Kyrie Irving Jersey At Wake

Your Morning Dump... Where if you're not tired of the Kyrie rumors you should

WDSU-TV reports his body was positioned in a chair and he had a video game controller in his lap. Matthews' corpse is propped up in a spinning chair while wearing a Celtics jersey, more specifically the No. 11 Kyrie Irving black alternate jersey. It's an unconventional way of honoring someone's death, yet the Matthews family believes it'll help his friends remember him in the best way possible.

The teen's mom, Temeka, told WGNO that her son was a bit of a homebody and had only recently started venturing outside before he was killed in a shooting on June 25.

During his remembrance on Sunday, the family had Matthews preserved and placed in stance that reflected his low-key lifestyle. According to News4Jax sister station KPRC-TV, Matthews will be buried on Tuesday.
