Kyrie Irving Excited to Play in a 'Real, Live Sports City'

The NBA's least-well-kept secret of the summer of 2017 was how much Kyrie Irving wanted off the Cleveland Cavaliers. Irving seems bound and determined to prove he will indeed be a passer as the lead ball-handler - at times even over-passing (which is not a phrase you would likely have heard in Cleveland) to his teammates. 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.

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

"It's a really major city". "And then you move to the East Coast - into Boston - and it's so real [and] alive". Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different.

The difference between Boston and Cleveland is practically night and day. An ongoing, thriving city.

On Thursday, DJ Dunson of Yahoo Sports passed along comments Miller made on an National Basketball Association on TNT media call about Irving's reaction to getting dealt from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"You would go to Cleveland, and it would be at nighttime, and things would be going on, but you just see a vast difference", Irving said to the Charlotte Observer.

This is a bit of a 180 from his previous words on the subject. Along with Irving, the team has brought big-name free agent Gordon Hayward aboard, who is in his first season with a new franchise for the first time in his career as well.

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