Cavaliers honor Jason and Travis Kelce with tribute, bobblehead

Travis and Jason Kelce always have shown their hometown love, and on Tuesday, Cleveland showed the affection right back to the football stars. 

A Kelce brothers’ bobblehead night turned to an all-out love fest for the NFL’s most well-known brothers during the Cavaliers’ thrilling 105-104 win over the Celtics, with the organization honoring Jason with an over two-minute tribute video during the first quarter after his retirement from the Eagles this week

The heartwarming video featured footage of the elder brother from across his life and his football career before the cameras turned to Jason as the crowd roared for the hometown hero. 

Both brothers hail from Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and have kept their hometown close to them during their journey to stardom. 

The name of their podcast, “ New Heights,” is an homage to where they came from, and they felt the love from the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse crowd.

They arrived at the venue just after 7 p.m., according to the Associated Press, for the giveaway night in their honor. 

The bobblehead featured both brothers wearing Cavs jerseys and holding basketballs. 

“In person, I look way better than I was expecting,” Jason said about his bobblehead in a video posted by the Cavaliers on X. 

“I mean you had to have me in the dad shoe,” Kelce added. “Unfortunately  I got the Monarchs on instead of the New Balance [tonight].”

The Cavaliers also presented Jason with a framed No. 62 jersey during the first timeout of the game. 

The video montage moved Kelce to tears as Tavis Kelce picked up the framed jersey and held it over his head. 

The sentimental moments made the rounds on social media, but so did one later in the game when the brothers were back on the video board chugging a beer.

Both bothers — rocking custom Cavaliers jerseys — cheered each other before gulping down the adult beverages to the delight of the crowd. 

Jason received a few more goodies from the team before the night was up, including a bedazzled basketball and a luchador mask, which he famously wore during the postgame celebration of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl in February.
