CLEVELAND - If there was any question as to how Cleveland Cavaliers fans would receive Kyrie Irving upon his return to Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday night, it was answered rather quickly.
The former Cavs star and new Boston Celtics guard took the floor for warmups at the Q to a chorus of boos, which only grew louder during his official introduction.
Irving, of course, requested a trade from Cleveland this past summer, bringing his six-year career with the team he helped win the 2016 NBA championship to an end. Irving and the Celtics are in town to face the Cavs in the NBA season opener and the boos have since continued each time the 4-time All-Star has touched the ball.
