Kyrie Irving rips Cleveland, calls Boston 'real, live sports city'

"It's exciting to be back on the East Coast", Irving said.

With only days left before the start of the regular season, Kyrie Irving is still soaking in his new home after going an undefeated 4-0 as a member of the Boston Celtics.

Famously requesting a trade away from the Cavaliers earlier this summer, Irving went from bring a beloved figure in Cleveland to perhaps Public Enemy No. 1. Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different. You get it all, especially in Boston.

Kyrie Irving isn't being subtle: He wants you to know that Cleveland is a bad city, and Boston is better.


And the rest of us will shrug and let those two cities, each fine in their own right, slug whine it out.

Now he's dissing Cleveland, the city, which. Irving would go on to talk about the differences in culture and food and people - obvious facts.

After helping the Celtics to a 108-100 preseason victory over the Charlotte Hornets with 16 points and 10 assists in 27 minutes on Wednesday night, Irving told the NBA Countdown crew that the biggest difference between his old team and his new team is how much the Celtics pass the ball. "Boston, I'm driving in and [thinking], 'I'm really playing in a real, live sports city?' And a great city", he stated. "It will Always be Love and respect Cleveland".

In his six seasons in Cleveland, he earned a Rookie of the Year award, made four All-Star teams and helped James deliver the Cavs to three straight NBA Finals.
