Irv­ing feel­ing at home in Bos­ton

Sun.Star Davao - - CLASSIFIED -

CHAR­LOTTE, North Carolina — Bos­ton star Kyrie Irv­ing has added more spice to the Celtic­sCleve­land sea­son opener.

Irv­ing, who asked to be traded out of Cleve­land and wound up with the Celtics this sum­mer after three straight NBA Fi­nals trips with LeBron James and the Cava­liers, says he sees "a vast dif­fer­ence" be­tween the cities.

"Bos­ton, I'm driv­ing in and (think­ing), 'I'm re­ally play­ing in a real, live sports city?'" Irv­ing told re­porters Wednesday, in com­ments pub­lished by The Char­lotte Ob­server.

"A lot of dif­fer­ent cul­tures, food and peo­ple. You get it all, es­pe­cially in Bos­ton," Irv­ing also said. "You would go to Cleve­land, and it would be at night­time, and things would be going on, but you just see a vast dif­fer­ence."

Re­mem­ber, Irv­ing and the Celtics open in Cleve­land on Tues­day night.
