Jahmani “Hot Shot” Swanson and Celtics’ star K yrie Irving

By NBA standards, Kyrie Irving is not tall. But the 6-foot-3 Celtics guard still towered over Jahmani “Hot Shot” Swanson when the two reunited in New York City the other night. A year ago, Irving posted a video on Instagram of the 4-foot-5 Swanson dribbling a basketball down the street and crossing over a random pedestrian. After the vid went viral — it was viewed 1.4 million times — “Hot Shot” was invited to join the Harlem Globetrotters on a trial basis and became an official member earlier this month.
