Kyzir White wants to talk basketball, so that's what we're doing. He is mystified by the trade request put in earlier that day by Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving – "Why doesn't he want to play with KD (Kevin Durant)? What is wrong with him?" – and then we're talking about who is the greatest basketball player of all time. My answer: Michael Jordan. His answer: LeBron James.
"What could Jordan do that LeBron can't do?" he says. "Plus, I never saw Michael Jordan. I'm too young."
Oh my goodness I'm on the floor ...
The point is, there is such a looseness here. The Eagles are treating things like normal.
"Nobody is uptight, we're treating it like business and I hate to say this, but it's just another game," White said. "We know we're here for a reason, so we aren't going to put more added stress on each other. Let's stay calm, cool, and collected."
White knows the Chiefs from his seasons with the Chargers.
"I'm real familiar with them and it's always a great challenge going against a quarterback (in Patrick Mahomes) like that, but we have a pretty good defense, too," he said. "It's going to be a great battle."
