Lavin Answers Reporter’s Phone At Press Conference

St. John’s coach Steve Lavin shocked an ill-timed caller who was trying to reach a 1010 Wins reporter during a press conference on Wednesday.

The phone, on the table in front of Lavin, was being used as a recorder – but the reporter had forgotten to turn off the call function.

Instead of flipping out about decorum, Lavin answered the phone after seeing a stranger named “Davey” was calling.

“Davey… Davey? Davey, how are you? It’s Steve Lavin, St. John’s University, he said, as reporters laughed.

The second-year coach had to repeat himself a few times to the shocked caller.

“We’re at the press conference and I just picked up the telephone, he added. I saw Davey on the caller ID so just wanted to say hello to you.”

He then said goodbye and turned to continue the press conference.

“He seemed a little taken aback, Lavin joked of his new phone buddy. But he was a real gentleman though, he said ‘thank you.'”
