In a public apology to Kyrie Irving, Stephen A. Smith admits his previous criticism went too far and has sincerely apologized for it. Many of Irving's critics have backed off after the star guard made a comeback in Dallas. At last, Stephen A.

He apologized for all of his previous remarks against the Dallas Mavericks star player and other things.

The video is 10 minutes long. In it, Stephen A. said,"I feel the way that I feel because I pride myself in being man enough to acknowledge when I'm wrong. If I think I'm wrong because, I think it's rare, but I was wrong, and for Kenny Smith to tell me that, it hit home in a big way because we go back more than 30 years." But the apology was made at a time when several NBA players, including Jaylen Brown and Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas, were criticizing Stephen A.
