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

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

Before the Celtics took on the Hornets on Wednesday to close out their preseason schedule, Kyrie Irving spoke to reports about what it's been like being in Boston.

One might think that Irving would simply forget about his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers and move forward with his National Basketball Association career.

Kyrie Irving says that Boston, unlike Cleveland, is a "real, live sports city".

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 softened his comments after the Celtics' 108-100 win over Charlotte Wednesday night.

The younger fan in the Gordon Hayward jersey behind the fan who got the shoes might decide to go with Irving next game. As one of America's top sports cities, Boston is one of the best places in the world to play, and the atmosphere there can often be electric. Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different.

Boston is a city that is rich with insane sports history as the Celtics have a slew of Banners in the rafters, the Patriots have ridiculous amount of banners, and the Red Sox have three World Series titles since breaking the curse of the Bambino.

"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. "I left one incredible legacy (in Cleveland), and now I moved to Boston".
