Kyrie Irving touts Boston as 'real, live sports city'

Boston Celtics: 5 goals for Kyrie Irving in 2017-18

Considering that the Celtics open the new season in Cleveland on Tuesday night, Irving will soon hear about those comments from his old fans - already upset with his decision to demand a trade. "Boston, I'm driving in and [thinking], 'I'm really playing in a real, live sports city?' And a great 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.

"Understanding the fans and the connection I had there, and moving into Boston, there's a lot of newness", said Irving.

For the Celtics, Irving will have a chance to take the Eastern crown from his former team.

"Got treatment all day today, so I'm not sure if we should be concerned or not", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue told reporters.

Irving would go on to talk about the differences in culture and food and people - obvious facts. Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different. Consistently. No matter what hour throughout the night.
