NBA Draft Media Day 2011 took place yesterday, and Bleacher Report was there reporting on a frenetic event where journalists from across the world scratch and claw for any quotes, soundbites and video clips from future NBA draft picks.
Twelve players appeared at the Westin Times Square, spilt into two groups of six, for 30-minute shifts early Wednesday afternoon.
Later in the day, Kyrie Irving, Derrick Williams, Jimmer Fredette, Brandon Knight, Markieff Morris and Kemba Walker participated in an hour-long clinic for 60 local Special Olympics athletes at John Jay College in Midtown Manhattan.
This slideshow will focus on Irving, the former Duke point guard who most people are projecting as the future No. 1 pick of the NBA draft tonight.
B/R was part of an impromptu four-person press conference at the clinic, in which Irving gave some interesting soundbites about his Duke career, the impact his father has had on his life and even Wilt Chamberlain.
