Renard Matthews was shot and killed in New Orleans two weeks ago, and his family chose to honor and remember him in a special way. 

At his wake, the family dressed Matthews in his favorite Boston Celtics Kyrie Irving jersey, playing "NBA2K" on Playstation 4 and surrounded by snacks like Doritos, Zebra Cakes and soda. The family told WGNO, he was a bit of a homebody.
