The Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday, 119-114. Afterward, comedian Hannibal Buress asked Cavs' coach David Blatt if he was able to cope well with a loss. The ensuing dialogue was great.
After the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday 119-114, comedian Hannibal Buress assumed the role of post-game interviewer and asked Cavs' coach David Blatt if he was able to cope well with a loss.
To Blatt's credit, he recognized the humor in the question, and responded with some humor of his own before addressing the question seriously.
It's unclear why Buress was credentialed for the game. Before the game, he tweeted a photo of a press credential with his name and 'ESPN' written beneath it.
Whatever the reason, we're glad Buress now has a second career as a "journalist."
I'm gonna be the first "journalist" in a NBA press conference to ask "what are your biggest regrets in life?" pic.twitter.com/HtDG6KyGxC— Hannibal Buress (@hannibalburess) December 13, 2014
