Star guard Kyrie Irving took to social media on Monday to encourage fans following the Dallas Mavericks’ season-ending 106-88 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Irving stated that Mavs supporters have to be pleased of the team’s postseason success and “keep your head up high”:

In front of a strong Celtics defense, Irving managed just 15 points on 5-of-16 shooting for the Mavericks. The 32-year-old shot just 18 of 53 from the field during the Finals on the road, much below his usual level of play in three games in Boston.

(1) Chief Hélà 🤞🏾 on X: “Tribe, stay together no matter what. Through the ups and downs, wins and losses, success and failure. Keep your head up high. This mission is bigger than us. I love you all! Hélà🤞🏾🪶♾❤️” / X

For the first time since 2011, the Mavs were participating in the NBA Finals, and supporters are undoubtedly hopeful that it won’t be another 13 years before the franchise returns to this level of competition.

Irving seems to be sure that, before his time with the team ends, he can help guide Dallas to its second championship in franchise history.
