Kyrie Irving says Boston is 'a real, live sports city'

Irving, speaking with reporters before the Celtics' preseason matchup with the Charlotte Hornets, said the biggest difference between Boston and Cleveland is that he's in a sports city now.

But as an interview with the Boston Globe attests, he had as little love for the city of Cleveland as he did the Cavs.

The All-Star point guard grew up in New Jersey, and is excited to be living on the East Coast again.

Kyrie Irving is about a week away from heading back to Cleveland, but needless to say, his welcome back probably won't be a cheery one. And then you move to the East Coast - into Boston - and it's so real [and] alive. Irving would go on to talk about the differences in culture and food and people - obvious facts.

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.

Irving sees a "vast difference" between life in Boston and Cleveland, where he spent the first six years of his National Basketball Association career. Thank you From my whole being for being there as I was a 19 year old kid coming into the league, to now where I start another step in the journey as a 25 year old Evolving man.

So even though Irving was the guy who hit the game-winning shot in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, giving Cleveland its first championship, he shouldn't expect a warm welcome Tuesday night when the season opens.
