Matthew Dellavedova always has wedding ring on his shoe during games

Cavs, Matthew Dellavedova

Cavs point guard Matthew Dellavedova tied the knot with his dream girl, Anna Schroeder, in July of last year. In each of the 57 games he’s played since, the crafty ball handler has fastened his wedding ring to his left shoe.

While suiting up for a matchup, “Delly,” as he’s come to be known, threads the lace of his left shoe through the gold band that Anna gave him on their wedding day. He then threads the shoelace through the top eyelet and tucks the ring away.

“Why? So I don’t lose it,” Delly told Joe Vardon of cleveland.com. “We take it on and off so much, I really don’t want to lose it, you know. It’s obviously special, and you know, I’m very proud to be married to her. So, I don’t want to lose it.”

Clearly, the bond between these two is strong. When the couple announced their intentions to wed, Delly wrote some touching words for Anna, saying: “She’s the best teammate I’ll ever have.”

Dellavedova, who’s now serving a second stint with the Cavs, was a key contributor for Cleveland’s 2016 championship winning team. His hard-working style of play and gritty defense endeared him to fans in the city.
