Kyrie Irving explained for the first time why he put the Knicks on his August wish list, though did so with reservations, feeling more would be made of it.

The new Celtics point guard, who is from West Orange, N.J. briefly talked to a few New York writers after his press conference late Tuesday following the Celtics 110-89 victory over the Knicks.

Where is this gonna go?, said Irving, who can opt out of his contract and become a free agent in 2018. Its pretty easy man. They were on my list for a reason, I think you guys know that. Close to home, thats about it. Im not going to go into detail about all that extra stuff because I know where this is going to lead.

When Irving looked up, a phalanx of cameras started walking over to the small group. Cameras all here, I know exactly where this is going to go, Irving said before walking out of the arena.

The Knicks faced the superstar point guard for the first time since he had placed them on his list of possible destinations. Irving, who scored 20 points with seven assists, demanded a trade from the Cavaliers in August.
