Kyrie Irving let the sports world know why he was happy to be in Boston, and his comments didn’t sit well with a few members of his former franchise.
“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, per ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “You just never know those things, so I never want to leave a place and talk s— about a place. Because when you were there, it was great, and then you leave, it?s terrible?
“It?s just like players. Fans celebrate players when they?re there, and then they leave, and it?s the worst thing. That?s not me. That?s not how I do things. I?m appreciative of what people have done for me, what organizations have done for me, and I hope they?re appreciative of whatever I can bring or whatever I?ve done — on and off the court. So, it doesn?t always go that way, but that?s the way I try to make it when I can control it.?
Wade joined the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sept. 27 after being bought out by the Chicago Bulls, and it seems he’s already injected himself into the NBA’s most intriguing rivalry.
Opening night should be fun.
