    Really don't like the comments from the kid, but, I think his quote means something different than how it's being portrayed (not that it's any better).

    Kyrie is saying that Boston is a better place to live, in that, it's a "real live (sports) city." He goes on about the "food" and "culture" and compares the nightlife between the two cities.

    I personally hate Boston, wouldn't ever live there for shit; and I prefer Cleveland. But that being said, I'm not a millionaire 20-something basketball icon; although both Kyrie and myself love White girls with a booty, so, Boston does have that to offer I'm sure.

    What I dislike is the fact that he felt it necessary to shit on Cleveland, rather than simply keeping the opinion to himself. An opinion that, I can understand, being that I've moved out of Cleveland and would not choose to return for reasons relating to "food," "culture," nightlife, etc... I get what he's saying -- but that doesn't mean it needed to be said.

    It's just not the right time or place unless his specific goal was to put his name in the papers.

    I actually think our starters/players looked great together until LeBron came back. He's the one with rust and out of sync. Once he and the team get use to each other look out.


    The Celtics do look great though. Kyrie is in a really great situation to show off his skills.

    Yeah, the 1st unit looked good until he came back becauase we had good enough spacing, now that he is back we don't have any idea what to do on offense. It's like they never played together.

    Kyrie looks to pass more and their whole team shows great chemistry. I still believe they have no one that is able to guard Lebron at all, but they do look improved from last season.

    Boston girls are ugly as fuck. Many more cities I can think of before I start talking about Boston girls.

    Kyrie likes being able to take off with the balk with no side eyes from LeBron. He HATED playing slow because it DIRECTLY affected his game in a negative way. If a guy is a dribble god who excels in transition he probably won’t have fun with a guy who pounds the air out the ball and prefers a slow and spaced out game so he can get his 8 assists



    If you’ve seen me post about LeBron I’m on record as saying he’s way more selfish as a player than anyone gives him credit for. He got away from it in Miami because he trusted Wade and Chalmers and Spolstra. But he HATED EVERY MINUTE of it. This is why LeBron is 100% finishing his career in Cleveland. Yeah he said unselfish but he’s very selfish if you really dive into it and Kyrie isn’t a dumbass he sensed it.

    As long as I get my triple double idc, as long as in the guy who passed to the open man for the game winner I’m ok. This is how LeBron thinks. He utterly fears the idea of his team not needing him.



    I loved Kyrie here and loved his preseason action. That team will play fast and loose and we need to get our cardio up because Kyrie right now is telling the Celtics the way to beat us isn’t in the halfcourt.....it’s to tire out LeBron

    Boston looks great.

    It's just preseason, though. Just hard to put any stock into it.

    This would make sense... except in the biggest moment of his career, HE'S the one that told Lue to get Kyrie the ball to win the game.

    I wouldn't call having Kyrie Irving a problem. That's pure butthurt.

    The Cavs are going to have a bigger problem integrating all of the new players.

    About as good of a trade as you could have hoped for, however.

    Boston didn't turn over half their roster and isn't relying on a bunch of 21 year olds?

    He thinks Boston is a great city? Wait until they yell racial slurs at him when they start losing.

    True... I mean, no matter what people might say about Cleveland, it will always be a more comfortable place for Black athletes to play than Boston.

    I know this is silly, but I just always get a kick out of listening to the NBA Lockdown podcast with Sedano and Elhassan. They were talking about Kyrie's comments and to no ones surprise it immediately turned into the typical Cleveland bashing sessions for the next 10 minutes. Some of the things they called Clevelanders is "crazy", "delusional", "podunk" and "sociopathic", while calling Cleveland an "abandoned, ghost town" "mistake by the lake" and "not a city".

    I found myself just laughing at how completely unoriginal and petty these two are that they are still going on like this about Cleveland for years now. They are like the kids in high school that make fun of the unpopular, poor kid in school so they can feel really good about themselves. It was really cringe worthy coming from grown men.

    I really believe Kyrie is upset that it was not that big of a deal he left. Some even say we are better off with the depth we got. His little feelings got hurt, so know he needs to trash Cleveland just to get them upset about it. He needs attention.
