Kyrie Irving will return to his former stomping ground as the Dallas Mavericks will take on Boston Celtics in the NBA finals. Both teams have had their fair share of ups and downs throughout the season and they will be tested on the big stage once again.
Irving happened to be a part of the Celtics for two seasons before switching to the Brooklyn Nets during the 2019 postseason. In his Nets tenure, he faced Celtics two times in the playoffs.
The Nets got the better of the Celtics in 2021 but failed to replicate the same magic in the following season as the Celtics came on top. Irving came to Boston in 2017 and he will be the subject of a hostile atmosphere when Celtics will host Dallas at the TD Garden this time.
Irving has a pretty good record against Celtics in the playoffs as he has recorded 23.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4,4 assists in 18 games. He will be adamant about having his influence in the game and if the Luka Doncic-led side wants to lay their hand on the trophy, the 32-year-old will have to be at his best.
On being asked about his return to Boston he said, "I think I'm better at consolidating kind of the emotions now or being aware of what it's going to be like," "We call it animosity, we call it hate, we call it, 'It's going to be hell in Boston.' I mean, there are real, live circumstances going on in the world that are bigger than the basketball, kind of the competitive side of things and answering those questions.
"But I will say last time in Boston, I don't think that was the best -- not this regular season, but when we played in the playoffs [with Brooklyn] and everyone saw me flip off the birds and kind of lose my s--t a little bit. That wasn't a great reflection of who I am and how I like to compete on a high level. It wasn't a great reflection on my end towards the next generation on what it means to control your emotions in that type of environment, no matter what people are yelling at you.”
