The ball that Kyrie Irving threw into the crowd after Jamal Murray's career performance earlier this week? It's back in Murray's possession.

Prior to Denver's game against Brooklyn on Friday, a young Nuggets fan gave the ball back to the Canadian and received some cool gear in return.

The ball ended up in the crowd when Murray broke one of the league's unwritten rules by taking a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of Denver's 115-107 win over the Celtics in an attempt to reach 50-plus points.

Irving told reporters after the game that he felt disrespected by Murray's shot attempt because "you just don't do that in the NBA."

"So," Irving continued, "your career-high ball goes in the stands."

Unfortunately for Irving, not only did Murray get the ball back, the league fined him $25,000 for his actions.
