  • Basketball: Cavaliers take...

    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Kyrie Irving probably secured his spot atop the NBA draft when he went to Cleveland and beat his future coach in a shooting contest.
    Yet even surrounded by family and friends from his nearby hometown, Irving couldn’t relax Thursday.
    “When David Stern came up there and said that the Cleveland Cavaliers have five more minutes on the clock, that felt like the longest five minutes of my life,” Irving said.
    Imagine how Jimmer Fredette felt.
    The sweet-shooting NCAA player of the year had to wait 2½ hours from the time he was picked by Milwaukee to the time he officially became a member of the Sacramento Kings after being involved in the biggest trade of draft day.
