Kyrie Irving Excited to Play in a 'Real, Live Sports City'

Boston Celtics Kyrie Irving reacts during the second half of a preseason NBA basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers Friday Oct. 6 2017 in Philadelphia. The Celtics won 110-102

Celtics' Kyrie Irving happy to be in Boston

"A lot of different cultures, food and people". "I'll have enough off days to figure out the city".

Now he's dissing Cleveland, the city, which. You get it all, especially in Boston. Consistently. No matter what hour throughout the night.

We all know just how angry and disappointed former Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas was when he was suddenly involved in the trade that sent disgruntled Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving to Boston, as Thomas had given all that he had to the Celtics franchise and didn't want to be anywhere else.

"You would go to Cleveland, and it would be at nighttime, and things would be going on, but you just see a vast difference in terms of what the Midwest is - Cleveland - and what Boston is", Irving said to the Globe.

Though he and the rest of his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates helped bring the city its first championship in any major professional sports league in 52 years, Kyrie Irving apparently doesn't consider Cleveland to be a "real, love sports city".

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving will be playing the first game of his career with a franchise other than the Cleveland Cavaliers on October 17.

It's important to note that it's very possible that Irving's words are coming off harsher than intended.

Coincidentally, Irving's shade came at a time when Clevelanders filled Progressive Field to cheer on on the Indians against the Yankees in Game 5 of the ALDS on Wednesday. "If you're Cleveland and the way they were left, you read it one way". But we know in Cleveland, we have a great sports town in Cleveland. Based on these comments, the decibels of boos might increase.
