This goes quite a bit against what Irving said back on August 31st, when he did a video giving a lot of praise to the city.
“I spent part of my life and my years in the NBA in Cleveland in such a great environment, being there from the start in 2011 and now coming to an end in 2017, which is still crazy in my mind,” Irving said back on the video.
Whatever the case, Irving is going to get a taste of the city he left next Tuesday, when the Cavs open the season on October 17th at home vs Boston.
