Dallas Mavericks star Kyrie Irving sparked controversy after showing up to Saturday’s postgame press conference wearing a Palestinian keffiyeh.
The Mavericks star, who claimed to be a “committed” Muslim in 2021, wore the black and white checkered headgear despite having no cultural connection to the Palestinians as he spoke about the game.
Irving did not make any verbal statements about the garment, offer any reasons for wearing it, or speak to any political situations around the world.
He was also seen wearing the keffiyeh as he entered the arena.
Neither the team nor the NBA made any statements about Irving’s display.
But Irving has made no real mistake that he supports Hamas and not Israel after the terror organization went on an inhuman spree of rape, murder, infanticide, torture, and kidnapping of Israeli civilians during a rampage through Southern Israel on October 7.
On October 11, only four days after the terror attack, Irving took to his X account and blasted the media for not speaking up for Hamas.
“Where are all you tough talking Media Heads that get on TV and social platforms to condemn people who stand by the oppressed?” he wrote.
“Crimes are being committed against humanity and most of you are silent. Cat got your tongue? Or you’re afraid of actually standing for something real,” he added.
Irving, of course, was suspended in November of 2022 for refusing to disavow the antisemitic tweets he had made in the months before his suspension, including his support for the notoriously antisemitic group the Black Israelites./blockquote>

HOW much is HIS contract?????
Unless he is fired, the Dallas Mavericks support rape and murder of women.
In February 2017, Irving stated in an interview for a podcast that he believes that the Earth is flat.
Not surprising. So I’m not even mad.
Mark Cuban, the Mavs owner is a Jew. Big leftist dickbag too. Get the cornpop out.
How come a Muslim player was kicked out of the NBA for mentioning Uyghurs?
The Dallas Mavericks cut a player at NBA orders who was Muslim, simply because he criticized China. His name is Enes Kanter Freedom, and he is a patriotic American. Do you agree with that?
Trade him, you don’t need his drama. It’s not good for team.
We really don’t need more assistant Jihadis in the good ole USA.
Arafat! Influencing fashion long after his shuffling off this mortal coil.
The Demagogic Party is a collection of violent rival street gangs. Same goes for the Deep State.
I’d estimate close to 85%-90% of black people support the Palestinians. Israel has lost support of many because of their using collective punishment and indiscriminate bombing. While feelings are mixed in the West, the entire Global South supports the Palestinians too.
This is going to effect the US negatively in our relationships with these countries as we are seen as the enablers of this. Netanyahu needs to cool it with the indiscriminate bombing as the majority killed are women and children. He’s really giving Israel a bad reputation.
Makes me think of Shakey’s.
IF I were a Maverick’s fan, which I am not, I would address the organization and tell them that I would boycott the Mavericks for the rest of my life. I will never put one dime of money into the mavericks pockets. NEVER AGAIN!
Why, again, do i care?
