Irving goes No. 1 overall

Posted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 182 days ago (http://feeds.cbssports.com)
Kyrie Irving probably secured his spot atop the NBA draft when he went to Cleveland and beat his future coach in a shooting contest. Yet even surrounded by family and friends from his nearby hometown, Irving couldn't relax Thursday night. "When David Stern came up there and said that the Cleveland Cavaliers have five more minutes on the clock, that felt like the longest five minutes of my life," Irving said. There was no chance the Cavs would deal Irving, confident his foot is healthy enough to lead the rebuilding effort that follows LeBron James' departure and no doubt impressed when the Duke point guard beat Cavs coach Byron Scott in a shooting contest during his workout. Loudly cheered not far from where he starred at St. Patrick's High School in Elizabeth, Irving showed no signs of the toe injury on his right foot that limited him to 11 games last season as he walked up the stairs to shake hands with Stern. "I didn't have any doubts about going to No. 1. I was looking to the organization to pick who they felt was the right choice," Irving said. "But now to this moment, from being a fan of the NBA draft and now being drafted, it's a special feeling in my heart and knowing that my friends and family were together, it's a memory I'm going to remember for the rest of my life."
