Kyrie Irving on Boston

Kyrie Irving on Boston

Irving won the NBA's Rookie of the Year Award with the team in 2012, before becoming a four-time All-Star and one-time NBA Champion over six seasons.

It wasn't long before social media blew up defending The Land, followed by newly acquired Cavs player Dwayne Wade and Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue joining in on the conversation. But we know in Cleveland, we have a great sports town in Cleveland. It has the history there. "If you're a sports fan somewhere else, you read it another way".

"My thing has always been - even in Miami - first of all, you never know where you're going to be, what's going to happen, where you're going to end up, who you're going to be teammates with", Wade said.

"I just moved in to a whole new place, I've been there a month or so".

Irving will get to see Cleveland in person one time this season when the Celtics face off with the Cavaliers to start the season October 17.

It's obvious that Ainge didn't want to trade away Thomas the way he did, but considering IT's injury, and the opportunity that presented itself with Kyrie and the Cavs, Ainge had to make a tough decision either way. "It's fast-paced. A lot of different cultures, food, and people". An ongoing, thriving city.

While Cleveland has not had the success Boston has had across all major sports, it still has three major sports teams, and the only one of the major leagues not represented is the NHL.

"You would go to Cleveland, and it would be at nighttime, and things would be going on, but you just see a vast difference". After Wednesday's comments, the passionate Cleveland fan base might have found a new basketball enemy.
