Kyrie Irving is expected to be the number one pick in tonight’s NBA Draft, whether you agree with it or not. Irving joined The Dan Patrick Show this morning to talk ball and where he may end up.
In typical Dan Patrick fashion the former SportsCenter anchor tried to push him humor onto all of us by being a douchebag towards Irving. Take a look at some of his questions he asked to Kyrie.
Are you going to Cleveland?:
“I’m not sure yet.”
They haven’t told you?:
Have you shopped for housing in Cleveland yet?:
“No, I have not shopped for housing in Cleveland yet.”
How much pressure will there be to be the next LeBron James?:
“I’m not really looking to be the next LeBron James unless I grow about six inches in the next two hours or the next week or so. Right now, I’m just really looking forward to contributing to any team that wants to take me.”
Do you have a Cleveland Cavaliers colored tie for the draft?:
“No, no Dan, I’m not having a Cleveland Cavalier-colored tie on.”
Do you own one that you’ll be able to wear at your first press conference?:
“No, I don’t have a Cleveland Cavalier tie prepared.”
What’s your number in Cleveland?:
“In the NBA, Dan, I think hopefully my number will either be number 1 or number 11.”
Kinda funny, but you could tell Irving wasn’t too amused. DP is a solid host but gets a little too douchey for me. Not to mention his four weirdo producers he calls the “Dan-ettes”.
