On Wednesday, he took to Facebook to respond to some of his critics, whom he said claimed he was having a "no black girls allowed party," as he celebrated an NBA championship.
"I'd never think I would have to address something as ridiculous as a yacht party, but I wasn't raised to discriminate against any race let alone any race of women, especially my own," Irving said on Facebook.
"I was raised by the black women in my family and for me to be connected to some nonsense like a "No black girls allowed" party is embarrassing and an inaccurate portrayal of who and what I represent as man. I wasn't going to even address any of this because there are literally a million things going on in the world right now that are far more important, rather than people trying to bring question to my character. I would like to apologize to anyone if they were offended initially without knowing any of what actually happened, but that story has no truth to it and I wanted to clear the air on all of this B.S. And for those who know me, I'm sorry you all had to answer questions about a story as ridiculous as something like this. But now, I would like to continue celebrating this championship. Thank you."

Like many of his Cavaliers teammates, Irving has been enjoying his summer after upsetting the Golden State Warriors.
Several videos of Irving surfaced on social media partying on a yacht with many women in bikinis. While some responded amicably to Irving's celebration, others accused the guard of racism.
Irving, 24, was the 2011 NBA Rookie of the Year after being drafted with the top pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.
