VIDEO: Lang Whitaker Goes Behind The Scenes At NBA Lottery, Gets Kyrie Irving To Sing

SB Nation Studios sent Lang Whitaker to Times Square on Wednesday to go behind the scenes at the 2012 NBA Draft Lottery. While Whitaker spent plenty of time talking with the various representatives of the lottery-winning Hornets, he also spoke to some of the incoming prospects and representatives of other lottery teams, including Kyrie Irving. Whitaker came prepared, noting Irving's recent interview with GQ where the 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year stated that he was into musicals and "probably knew all the words to songs of Rent." And, if just for a brief moment, Whitaker got Irving to sing a little bit from "Seasons of Love." I'm assuming Kyrie did not expect to get asked, "How do you measure, measure a year?" at the Lottery.
