Kyrie Irving Has Already Thought About Being The First Pick In The NBA Draft

The Cleveland Cavaliers have the first pick in the 2011 NBA Draft after winning the annual NBA Lottery, and with that pick, they're expected to pick Duke point guard Kyrie Irving.

The Cavs brain trust has certainly thought about this plenty, and so has Irving according to an interview he did on Thursday with WQAM in Miami.

"I've thought about it a little bit but right now the main focus is about me getting better every single day," Irving said of being the No. 1 pick. "That's what I'm working towards. Whatever team wants me to come in and work out for them that's what I'm going to do and just give it my all. That's what I'm preparing for. Just preparing for the workouts and after I handle the workouts then I will worry about the NBA draft."

Exactly the bland answer everyone would expect, but at the same time, it's the right answer. If nothing else, Irving seems ready for Craig Sager to interview him in next year's NBA Playoffs.
