Kyrie Irving didn’t play in the Cavaliers' first game of the preseason against the Magic on Wednesday night. He's 100 percent healthy, but Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue is being cautious with him since he spent his summer playing with Team USA. But his absence didn’t stop him from having a pretty funny interaction with LeBron James during the contest.
At one point, Irving—who was not in uniform—joined the broadcast booth to do a live interview and to talk about what was happening out on the court. Unfortunately, the only thing he could focus on was LeBron who was standing just a few feet in front of him and dancing to Drake’s "One Dance." It's unclear if LeBron was trying to distract Irving on purpose, but it certainly looked like he was:
Kyrie struggled to work his way through that specific part of the interview (can you blame him?). But eventually, he was able to get things back on track. He talked about the big shot he hit in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, the incredible block LeBron had on Andre Iguodala during that game, and more. You can check it out here:
It’s good to see that LeBron & Co. are staying loose as they prepare to defend their NBA title this season. Something tells us this won't be the last time we see LeBron showing off his moves on the court.
