NEWARK, N.J. — Tristan Thompson said Wednesday he was looking forward to dunking on Kyrie Irving in the NBA.
Now that the two are teammates with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Thompson will only get to dunk on Irving during practice.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Irving, the former St. Patrick and Duke star who was taken No. 1 overall by the Cavs, said of playing with the 6-9 Thompson, selected minutes later at No. 4.
“Tristan is a great friend of mine, and just having another fellow freshman being drafted to Cleveland, I’m really looking forward to it.”
