From the sounds of it, the kid yelling words of encouragement to the Heat as they walked through the tunnel after Tuesday’s stunning Game 5 loss to the Celtics is 100% genuine. He’s probably just imitating something a coach told him after one of his own basketball games.
But it sent Twitter into an uproar of laughter.
So much, so, that a Twitter account was made for the already-legendary kid.
@KingJames I think you played great! I know you hustled so much you were super tired the last 2 minutes. Good effort! Good job!

The amazing thing is Pat Riley is actually considering hiring the "Good effort, good job" kid to coach Game 6.

To everyone who got out of bed today: "Good job. Good effort."
