Deceased Celtics fan is staged playing NBA2K at funeral

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

For Matthews' funeral ceremony, his family decided not to go with the traditional casket route, instead opting to stage his body to depict his favorite setting - playing the basketball video game while having junk food and soda at his side.

Ball is life ... and the family of Renard Matthews used his love of the Celtics so others would remember him as they do.

Matthews' family says he loved the Boston Celtics and playing video games.

Renard was also pictured wearing his favourite player socks in a scene made to look like a typical, family home. His favorite snacks were positioned on a nearby table and the floor.

Matthews was an 18-year-old resident of New Orleans who was tragically killed in a shooting back on June 26.

Matthews had been walking his dog when he was shot and robbed of his cellphone, his aunt told The Times-Picayune. We get used to seeing each other occupy certain spaces so I think there's something strangely handsome about wanting to see Renard Matthews in that chair, controller in hand, one last time.
