During Team USA Training Camp, reporters got a chance to interview Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving and he explained how he reacted to hearing the news that King James was going to be his teammate. Click the jump to see what he had to say.

Via USA Today:

“At first you were speechless; you couldn’t believe it,” Irving said. “I’ve been watching LeBron for a while now and now that I’m going to be running alongside him and being his point guard, it’s an honor and hopefully we can do great things.”
