Like any sports fan, this kid has a lot of heart.
Devastated when one of his favourite players Jeremy Lin wasn’t going to be returning to the New York Knicks (he signed with the Houston Rockets instead), five-year-old Niam was recorded on video having an emotional breakdown.
Soon after, the video went viral. And somewhere along the way, Niam’s heartbreak reached Jeremy. Seeing how saddened the child was, the basketball player arranged to speak with the youngster on Skype. Thanking him for his support and encouraging him to keep cheering for the Knicks, Jeremy also answered some of little Niam’s questions.
This kid is ridiculously cute and he sure seems to know his basketball. Maybe one day, he’ll be managing a team of his own!
