The legend of Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Matthew Dellavedova only continues to grow.

As the scrappy 24-year-old looks to keep on stifling Golden State Warriors star—and league MVP—Stephen Curry in the 2015 NBA Finals, a basketball stadium in Maryborough, Australia (where Delly grew up), will be renamed in his honor.

It will be called—prepare for greatness—the “Dellavedova Dome.”

This sensational news comes to us from Jake Bourke of 3AW.com, who also wrote that Australian kids are “reportedly skipping school to watch their local hero in action" during the NBA Finals.

It’s only a matter of time before Quicken Loans Arena follows suit and pays homage to LeBron James’ newest and most unconventional sidekick.
