Kyrie Irving Dumps On The Cavaliers And The City Of Cleveland

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?'".

Case in point: Irving returns to Cleveland for the Celtics regular-season opener Tuesday, and he can expect to get an earful.

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

After landing in Boston - his third team in his first five seasons in the league - many thought Boston GM Danny Ainge would build around the 5'9 dynamo, especially after his playoff performances while he was suffering both physically and mentally from a host of issues. "A great city, fans behind the teams 100 percent, so I'm happy to be here". Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different.

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. Shortly after his trade was finalized, he posted a heartfelt thank you note to the city of Cleveland on his Instagram. The Ups and downs, we stand and fight no matter what the circumstances are, and that's what being in Cleveland embodies, it is all Love and a whole lotta pride. But we know in Cleveland, we have a great sports town in Cleveland.

If he wasn't before, Kyrie Irving is bound to be booed now.

Irving was also there for the championship parade in downtown Cleveland. Based on these comments, the decibels of boos might increase.
