Pawtucket Red Sox to host 'Kyrie Irving Night,' featuring LeBron dunk tank

The Pawtucket Red Sox will host "Kyrie Irving Night" on Thursday to celebrate the star point guard being traded to the Celtics, according to ESPN.com.

Any fan wearing green or Celtics apparel will be granted free admission. The best part, however, is there will be a LeBron James dunk tank outside the stadium. Fans will get to dunk a Cavaliers fan wearing a LeBron jersey.

Per ESPN.com:

"We know how popular the Boston Celtics are throughout the area, and we hope that our fans will enjoy an evening that trumpets Kyrie Irving's arrival," Pawtucket Red Sox executive vice president and general manager Dan Rea said.

But that's not all. The team said, "any fan by the name LeBron, Draymond, Steph, Lonzo, or Kevin (Love or Durant) will be charged double the price of admission."

The PawSox certainly aren't holding back with this promotion.

The Celtics and Cavs open the season against one another October 17.
