Kyrie Irving will possibly articulate why he will likely leave the Boston Celtics as a free agent, but Jackie MacMullan posits that he didn't enjoy living in Boston.

"The part of the thing is Kyrie Irving didn't like Boston," said MacMullan on The Hoop Collective Podcast. "I've been told this by many people. He didn't like living in Boston. He just didn't. By the end, he had issues with Brad (Stevens). By the end he had issues with Danny (Ainge). By the end he had issues with pretty much all of us."

Irving is widely expected to sign with the Brooklyn Nets.
