Kyrie Irving happy to be playing in a

According to Gary Washubrn of the Boston Globe, Irving sees Boston as a much more lively and active city than Cleveland.

"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, of course, cemented Cleveland's first professional sports title in 52 years by hitting a game-winning 3-pointer with 53 seconds left in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals. He has been getting a taste of his new city since the trade that shook the basketball world back in July, going as far to call Boston "a real, live sports city".

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving will be playing the first game of his career with a franchise other than the Cleveland Cavaliers on October 17. Then, on Wednesday night, after the Celtics' win in Charlotte, Irving gave another fan in his Celtics jersey the shoes right off his feet.

But in a city like Cleveland, the small market factor is always something to keep in mind. I was talking to my best friend the other day: It's a really major city.

"Understanding the fans and the connection I had there, and moving into Boston, there's a lot of newness", said Irving.

"You see (the championship banners) just walking into our practice facility now". Looking at the championship banners - the biggest difference is literally that I just moved.
