 CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving has apologized for missing a postgame ceremony for fans.
Irving was stripped of the ball in the closing seconds of Monday's 96-95 loss to Miami. He sprinted to the locker room instead of participating in a jersey giveaway on ``Fan Appreciation Night.'' All the Cavs players gave away their jerseys and sneakers after Cleveland's final home game.
On his Twitter account, Irving extended an apology to ``all the Cavs fans for my actions,'' which he called ``truly unfair to you guys.''
He added: ``I'm very appreciative for all of you guys. Your love and passion for the organization and city is what pushes me to be great.''
In the locker room, a team official attributed Irving's absence to a bruised heel. Irving disputed an injury.
