Press conferences are a chance for journalists to ask the questions of players and coaches that everyone is thinking.
And as technology has improved, not to mention the amount of social media platforms available, even fans are given the chance to ask questions to their heroes.
It also can provide some weird, terrible and clever questions that leave the players and coaches on the podium completely frozen, and unable to answer.
Take this question from a journalist at the NBA Finals after Game 3 in Cleveland. The journalist didn’t leave just one but three players (LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and JR Smith) speechless. (Opening question of the press conference).
