With news surrounding the four-week shelving of Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, fans of the Wine and Gold came out of the woodwork to show their support of the injured star. Also jumping in was friend and co-star of the latest Uncle Drew spot for PepsiMAX ((Spoiler Alert)), Minnesota Timberwolves power forward — and fellow USA Basketball cohort — Kevin Love, who also sustained an early-season injury.
@kyrieirving minor setback, get well soon homie.

While the Love love was somewhat expected, Irving also received some bizarre support from the host of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Nick Cannon.

Irving’s appreciation for musicals is well documented. Whether or not he enjoyedDrumlineis still unknown at this time. A mutual admiration of Mariah Carey, perhaps?
