CANTON - After seeing the amount of media on premise for the Kyrie Irving press conference on September 1st, we anticipated another big local and national turnout. We were right. The new location for media day was packed and excitement was high. From what I heard, it was quite a different vibe than the 2007 media day to introduce that era’s new big 3.
Monday’s topics ranged from team chemistry, summer activities to training camp. On the more serious side, players gave their heartfelt opinions on the recent political and racial climate dominating sports talk shows. Kyrie Iving was pressed on LeBron James’ media day comments.
Jacob Tobey and Nick Gelso take you on a quick tour of all the day’s big moments. The playlist contains all the full length press conferences from media day.
