Mavericks star Kyrie Irving has taken to X to express his thoughts on the criticism and negative attention he often receives.

In a recent tweet, Irving wrote, “Smear campaigns are created by all the Cowards in our world. They throw their rocks and then hide in the crowd and hope you crash out.

“And when you find out who it was/is and see them in person, go check their temperature face to face lol, I promise you their energy is different.”

Irving’s tweet sheds light on his ongoing struggle with public perception and the criticism he faces.
