Draft Workout Odds and Ends, Edition #6

June 21, 2011
tags: , ,

Last one, and not much to say. There were reportedly six guys in attendance, but media coverage centered exclusively on Alec Burks and Klay Thompson.

Alec Burks had a mini-Jeremy Tyler moment when he was asked about his impression of “Tyrone.” (Jazz)

Burks: Tyrone…
Reporter: Corbin.
Burks: …
Reporter: Head coach?
Burks: Ohhh, my bad. He a cool dude.

(I’m not making fun of him; I just thought it was funny.)

Klay Thompson, meanwhile, is familiar with Gordon Hayward’s game because they played together on [unintelligible] team, and must be sick to death of answering questions about that one time, at band camp, when he smoked a joint.

Last thing: Can the Jazz take that down? It’s kind of embarrassing along the lines of those “Midwest Division Champion” banners at the ESA…

    As always, appreciation for the entertaining post. You never fail to make me laugh.
    Burks’ response is hilarious. The reporter asking the question shouldn’t have used Ty’s name in the first place – just the title of Coach – no way can these prospects be expected to remember a coach’s name after all the people they’ve worked out for (well, at least not after all the marijuana they’ve smoked…).
    Agree with you on the NBA Finals signs. C’mon now!
