Jason Smith: “This story is about education, and for Kyrie to learn that what he did was wrong. He wasn’t posting a different kind of opinion, but he tweeted about a movie promoting false information. The documentary he tweeted denied the Holocaust. It’s different to say, ‘Hey, this is how I feel about this, it’s different to say, ‘here’s something that’s non-standard.’ This is what you need in this situation, because he can learn and move forward in a positive way. Now, is this enough? No, because I want to hear him talk, because he’s very busy with reporters. But, this is a big step in the right direction.”
Mike Harmon: “Hopefully the next press conference will be one where he learns from himself and moves forward, instead of sitting around and talking about how ‘good news’ he is. He likes to believe that he is ‘well read,’ but he has to keep it up and answer questions when he is wrong or challenged.”
Jason Smith and Mike Harmon responded to Kyrie Irving’s late night apology that he posted on his Instagram. Kyrie apologized for sharing a documentary with anti-Semitic language. Listen to the full episode above!
