NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers.

Collin Sexton Insists He Has No Pressure to Fill ☘Kyrie Irving Shoes. 

Alabama guard Collin Sexton was handed the No. 2 jersey with his last name stitched at the back when he arrived for the press conference after being signed by the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2018 NBA Draft.

Sexton was immediately asked about the significance of the jersey, which was the same number used by former Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving. But the 19-year-old point guard made it clear he felt no pressure to fill the role the current Boston Celtics guard occupied.

The Alabama guard was picked by the Cavaliers as the No.8 pick during the draft, they acquired the pick from the Celtics when they traded Irving prior to the start of the 2017-18 season.

“I feel like I’m not going to have to live up to anybody’s shoes,” Sexton said during his introductory press conference after the draft on Thursday, as quoted by ESPN. “I’m going to come in and learn and be the best player I can be on the court as well as off the court.”

Sexton is certain to have big boots to fill when he dons the No.2 jersey as its previous owner – Irving – went from being the No.1 overall pick in 2011 to become a five time All-Star – four of them when he was with the Cavs – and the NBA Champion in 2016.

Irving also hit what is the biggest shot in the franchise’s history – the go-ahead three-pointer in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals against their perennial final rivals the Warriors.

Sexton’s first statement as a Cavaliers player, meanwhile, involved a plea for LeBron James to remain with his hometown franchise. The Alabama guard believes he is one of the pieces the small forward desires to build a team capable of reaching yet another final and winning it.
