Kyrie Irving is known to dislike Israel, to say the least, and regularly delivers pro-Palestinian messages, having converted to Islam several years ago. Tonight (between Saturday and Sunday) he again tried to manipulate the issue when he arrived at the press conference after the Dallas-Milwaukee game with a Palestinian keffiyeh on his head to show solidarity with the residents of the Gaza Strip.
The journalists in the press conference hall deliberately ignored the act and did not ask him anything about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, apparently thinking that Haggard was just waiting for it. A few weeks ago, shortly after the Iron Swords War began, Irving shared a tweet updating the number of dead on the Palestinian side and wrote: "I mourn them all." It should be noted that Dallas owner Mark Cuban is Jewish, which doesn't stop his player from continuing to behave disgracefully.
