After Hamas’ attack on Israel last month, the NBA and Irving’s present team, the Mavericks, said they stood with Israel.

“The NBA and NBPA are very sad about the terrible deaths in Israel and will not stand for these terrorist attacks.” The American Basketball League said on Oct. 9 that they stood with the people of Israel and prayed for peace in the whole area.

A day before the NBA statement, the Mavericks said they also stood with Israel.
