Declining to name names and refusing to cite specific issues for his desire to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers, new Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving maintained he wants to play for a franchise that maximizes his potential.

“I can’t wait to get on the floor to maximize my potential,” Irving said at his introductory news conference in Boston on Friday. “I just want to be around those incredible coaches, those incredible minds, those incredible individuals and I felt like in doing that Boston came at the right exact time and it was meant to be that way. I trust in that, and I’m glad to be here.”

Irving called his decision to depart Cleveland challenging, but he didn’t plan on spending this press conference lamenting his reasons for leaving Cleveland.
