Myles Turner slides ‘headfirst’ into DMs

Red carpet interviews are predictable in several ways — for the simple question on hot topics, and off-the-wall questions. The latter can annoy those celebrities walking the red carpet, or they can have fun with it. It’s what you make of it.

Pacers center Myles Turner chose the latter.

Prior to the annual ESPY awards out in Los Angeles, Turner and fellow NBA players Kristaps Porzingis, Devin Booker, Andre Drummond, and Jordan Clarkson stopped to talk with several media outlets, including SLAM Magazine.

Among the topics discussed were Kevin Durant going to the Warriors, Pokémon Go, and Sliding Into One’s DMs.

Sliding into one’s DMs means sending a message to someone whom peaks your interest. (There’s even a hit song.) Well, Turner provided possibly the line of the year with his answer.

“You know what,” he said, pausing to smirk, “if you’re really thirsty and you really need to quench your thirst, you’ve gotta do it. But at the same time, you’ve just gotta be careful about what you say because even just saying ‘Hi’ makes you look hecka thirsty.”

“Do you slide?” he was then asked.

“Yeah. I won’t even lie about that,” he replied. I slide headfirst.”
