Celtics' Kyrie Irving happy to be in Boston

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

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

Irving looks like he's primed and ready for the Celtics' season opener, which will be his much-awaited meet up with LeBron James and the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Since then, Irving has been typically unusual about the whole ordeal.

Cleveland, of course, has been a pretty successful sports city over the past few years as well. I mean, I've done the same thing, but it's not going to endear him to any Cavaliers fans.

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

"A lot of different cultures, food and people".

After spending his first six years in the city of Cleveland after just one year in Duke - Irving is feeling rejuvenated in the city of Boston as he gets ready to start his first campaign with the Celtics in just less than a month.

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.

Irving joins a slew of athletes who have benefited from ditching animal products this year, including; National Football League star Griff Whalen, basketball player Wilson Chandler, former rugby player Ben Cohen, and Formula 1 giant Lewis Hamilton.

He also praised the team's chemistry thus far into the season, saying "the way we've been playing, it feels like we've been playing together for a long time". They will enjoy Irving prodding Cavaliers fans to nearly the same extent that Cavaliers fans will hate it.
