Long story short … Snoop says Irving blew up a golden opportunity to make millions of dollars all because he wanted to smoke weed. And, this is SNOOP saying this.
Well, Irving says he respects Snoop … but tells TMZ Sports the rapper is just wrong in this case.
Irving says Snoop made uninformed assumptions about why he stepped away from the game — and he’s now inviting the rapper to have a 1-on-1 conversation to talk things out.
The 25-year-old’s point is that it’s not about getting high … it’s about finding safer ways to treat pain — and if anyone should be sympathetic, it’s Snoop.
“I’m pretty sure if I could’ve met with Snoop and let him know exactly what I’m doing, the businesses I’ve set up and the things I’m doing, I’m pretty sure he would say different.”
So, Snoop … thoughts?
