Irving rejoins Nets, apologizes for hurtful actions

NEW YORK (AP) – Kyrie Irving returned to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday and apologized to anyone who felt threatened or hurt when he posted a link to a documentary with anti-Semitic material.

Irving was suspended by the team on Nov. 3, hours after he refused to say he had no anti-Semitic beliefs when he met with reporters at the Nets’ practice facility.

Back in the building for the team’s morning round, Irving said he should have handled this interview differently.

“I don’t stand for anything close to hate speech or anti-Semitism or anything that goes against the human race,” Irving said. “I think we should all have the opportunity to speak for ourselves when things are brought up about us and I think it was necessary for me to stand in this place and answer for my actions because there was a way that I should ‘having handled all of this and as I look back and reflect on when I had the opportunity to offer my deepest regrets to anyone who felt threatened or hurt by what I posted, that was not my intention.
