Pre-draft media sessions always create some sort of buzz. Typically because a lot of the reporters are experiencing these soon-to-be NBA players in the media for the first time, which usually brings out some… buzz-worthy questions.

Tyler Herro, who has been invited to the NBA’s Green Room and is expected to be a first-round pick, was lobbed a softball during his pre-draft media availability, less than 24 hours before the biggest day of his life.

Herro was asked who his dream one-on-one matchup against any player in the NBA would be. According to Jerry Tipton, his answer was none other than former Kentucky sniper, Devin Booker.

Booker already had his response ready to go.

Do you all smell that? It sure smells like we got a good ole fashion friendly rivalry in our midsts. Can we go ahead and schedule the one-on-one for mid-August in Rupp Arena? I’ll empty my savings account for that ticket.

Herro doesn’t just believe in his basketball abilities, either. He claims he’s the best NBA2K player in the draft. Let’s just pit all the former Kentucky players against each other on both the virtual and physical hardwood – tournament style.
