Irving picks Duke

Kyrie Irving, as expected, committed to Duke on Thursday.

"I'm pleased to announce that I will be committing to Duke," Irving said on live television. "I'll be a Blue Devil next year."

Scout.com ranks Irving as the No. 2 point guard in the Class of 2010.

He was also considering Kentucky and Texas A&M.

(Note: Credit SNY's Adam Zagoria with the scoop. He had this nailed two days ago, wrote it and had to deal with Irving refuting his story publicly . As a journalist, I can tell you there's nothing more frustrating than having an accurate story refuted. So it was nice to see Zagoria vindicated, and Irving probably owes him an apology via Twitter, at least.)

I would like to apologize for the comments I made earlier.

I respect a person's right to live their life in whatever fashion they want to.  I support gay marriage.

Gay people suffer enough hatred and bigotry without me comparing them to Duke players.  That is very insulting.

I would also like to apologize to rats for the unfair comparison that I have made between them and Coach K.

Kyrie is the kind of person that other top notch recruits will want to play with. This will have a huge impact on Harrison Barnes and Austin Rivers decision. Please stay tuned to the domino effect of his committment to Duke!!

Parrish, I'm sure Zagoria will still invite you out for a drink without throwing a 17 year old under the bus.  Grow up and act like a real journalist.

How about Zagoria apologizing to Kyrie for publishing a story on hear say, and trying to steal a 17 year old kid's moment in the limelight. Zags reputation precedes him and his story was so well believed that the entire Duke campus was holding it's breath until they heard from Kyrie. As for you and your ego, "Parrish the Thoughts" that anyone noticed your picture and your tan. After calling it to my attention, the only thing I noticed was the widows peak on the top of your head.

I'm a UNC fan and I still think skinsheel is an idiot.  Every family has that one drunk cousin that says inappropriate things at inappropriate times i guess.

Anyways, I'm almost glad to see this guy go to Duke I've started to hate Calipari and Kentucky so much.  We already have Kendall Marshall and Reggie Bullock coming in next year, so the battle is over Harrison Barnes now.
