Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are on a quest to make it to the NBA Finals and hoist the trophy in June. Irving was stunned when a reporter asked him certain questions about LeBron being a Father figure. Peep his reaction

Via Deadspin:

Reporter: Kyrie, Tristan [Thompson] called LeBron a great father after the Chicago win…

Irving: What?

Reporter: He did.

Irving: A great fath … oh a great father? Oh? I interpreted that completely wrong. I thought you said he was a great father to him. I was like “what?”

Reporter. Called him a great father. So what type of parental role has he played for you and your teammates?

Irving: Oh ok, so you…

Different Reporter: You were right the first time.

Irving: Yeah yeah. Parental role? Honestly … [laughs] … I don’t know how to really answer that question. He has been a great leader for us. I have one father. That’s my dad Drederick Irving. But for us, in terms of learning the nuances of the game, and also how to win, and how to carry ourselves off the court, I feel he has been a great influence in that role.
