Back in November, All-Star guard Kyrie Irving issued an apology to the Jewish community for sharing a documentary that featured antisemitic language. That apology stayed on his Instagram for months, but it suddenly disappeared this week.
The Nets required him to apologize for him to return to action.
Now, the Nets have since traded him to the Dallas Mavericks and that apology has been deleted from his Instagram account. The timing of this decision was notable since Dallas Mavs owner Mark Cuban is Jewish.
He was aksed about deleting that post on Tuesday while making it clear that he still stands by his apology.
“I delete a lot of things on my IG… I didn’t mean to be defensive or go at anybody. I stand by my apology and I stand by my people, everywhere.”
Irving is set to be a free agent this summer. So far, there has not been any talks about him getting the contract he wants which made him demand a trade from the Nets.
Cuban will likely wait to see if Irving and Luka can coexist on the same team.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
