Kyrie Irving’s Response When Asked to Choose Between LeBron James and Kevin Durant
- Updated: September 18, 2017
The latest evidence came during an appearance on Monday morning, when Irving appeared on ESPN’s “First Take,” and was asked by the show’s co-host, Stephen A. Smith, if Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant was “catching” James as the greatest basketball player in the world.

“He’s a solidified champion, so he’s able to be in those talks,” Irving said.
Following up that question, Smith then asked about a choice between retired Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and James.
“In terms of who my favorite player is, my dad first and Kobe second,” Irving said as he made no mention at all of James. “You know how I feel about that.”
Drederick Irving, Kyrie’s father, never played in the NBA, though he did play internationally. It was during those international days in Australia that Irving was born Down Under in 1992.
