After helping the Celtics to a 108-100 preseason victory over the Charlotte Hornets with 16 points and 10 assists in 27 minutes on Wednesday night, Irving told the NBA Countdown crew that the biggest difference between his old team and his new team is how much the Celtics pass the ball.
Just days before his return, Irving took a dig at the city he called home for six years while trying to prop up his new one.
Irving's father Drederick, was a standout player at Boston University and he has spent considerable time in the city.
"It's exciting to be back on the East Coast", Irving said this morning. I was talking to my best friend the other day: It's a really major city. "You get it all, especially in Boston", Irving also said. Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different. An ongoing, thriving city.

So even though Irving was the guy who hit the game-winning shot in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, giving Cleveland its first championship, he shouldn't expect a warm welcome Tuesday night when the season opens.
Irving sees a "vast difference" between life in Boston and Cleveland, where he spent the first six years of his National Basketball Association career. But he seemed to be anticipating a greater sports culture when he said, "Boston, I'm driving in and (thinking), 'I'm really playing in a real, live sports city".
But you have to believe the Irving snipes will hurt more considering he actually played for the team, lived in the city and had time to get to know it.
