Kyrie Irving slams Cleveland in favor of Boston

Celtics' Kyrie Irving happy to be in Boston

Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller said he, along with former National Basketball Association stars Chris Webber and Nate Robinson, informed Kyrie Irving of his trade to the Boston Celtics while they filmed the Uncle Drew movie.

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

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

Irving played his high school ball in New Jersey, before departing for a single season to play collegiately at Duke in North Carolina. You get it all, especially in Boston.


A difference, too, Irving said between Boston and Cleveland as sports cities: "Boston, I'm driving in and (thinking), 'I'm really playing in a real, live sports city?'".

Irving won the NBA's Rookie of the Year Award with the team in 2012, before becoming a four-time All-Star and one-time NBA Champion over six seasons.

"It's a really major city". The one from which he demanded a trade and then ended up in a place he calls "a real, live sports city". Irving would go on to talk about the differences in culture and food and people - obvious facts.

No matter Irving's intention with these recent comments, they will surely give fans another reason to heckle him Tuesday night in his first and only scheduled trip to Cleveland - unless the two teams meet in a spicy postseason series.
