Irving later explained that he should’ve been “there for all those that felt like this was antisemitic” right after sharing the Meowy Christmas tree t-shirt also I will do this tweet, and added that he also “should have clarified that I am not antisemitic and I am not anti-anything when it comes to the way I live my life.” “So the learning lesson for me was just the power of my platform and the impact that it can cause if it’s not taken care of the right way. So meeting with different people within the Jewish community has offered me some clarity on a deeper understanding of what’s going on and the impact that was made and the hurt that was caused,” Kyrie said. “That’s why I’m here apologizing. Because I felt it was necessary in my heart to extend the olive branch, the invitation, to let everyone know, not just in the Jewish community, but all races in our world, that I’m here to listen and I’m here to stand with you against any issues that may be plaguing your community. This fight is much bigger than myself, and I’m not alone in this.”

The Nets issued a statement on Sunday regarding Irving’s return: “Kyrie took ownership of his journey and had conversations with several members of the Jewish community. We are pleased that he is going about the process in a meaningful way.” Before the game kicked off Sunday, a group from Israel United in Christ, which ESPN reports is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, handed out fliers that read “The Truth About Anti-Semitism” and “The Truth about Slavery.” Jaylen Brown of the Celtics retweeted a video of the group with the caption “energy,” before clarifying that he mistook them for a fraternity and was “not aware of what specific group that was outside of Barclay’s Center tonight.” Irving’s next game with the Nets is Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. as they face off against the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center.
