Kyrie Irving Says Boston Feels More Like a 'Sports City' Than Cleveland

Philadelphia 76ers Ben Simmons goes in for a dunk past Boston Celtics Abdel Nader during the first quarter on Oct. 9 2017

Kyrie Irving praised his new home, Boston, yet again Wednesday morning, while dimming the lights on his former National Basketball Association home - Cleveland.

Irving, of course, requested and was traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Boston Celtics this summer. "Boston, I'm driving in and [thinking], 'I'm really playing in a real, live sports city?' And a great city".

A much younger and in-his-prime Dwight Howard possibly might've had a chance to stay with Kyrie Irving on the break, but this current, aging version of the Hornets big man with all his back problems and other physical ailments simply had no chance of stopping Kyrie Irving on the open floor. Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different.

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

But in a city like Cleveland, the small market factor is always something to keep in mind.

"It's going to be an exciting game because you've got new players at Boston and you've got a young team in Philadelphia", Payton exclusively told Starsport.

Irving has been enjoying his time in Boston so far. 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. "You would go to Cleveland and it would be at nighttime and things would be going on, but you just see a vast difference".

"You see (the championship banners) just walking into our practice facility now. I left one incredible legacy (in Cleveland), and now I moved to Boston".
