Kevin Durant On Kyrie Irving’s Suspension. Kyrie Irving was placed on indefinite leave by the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night, following a week of controversy over his sponsorship of a fictitious documentary. After being accused of anti-Semitism, Kyrie refused to accept responsibility, and the Nets banned him for a maximum of five games.
The Nets made a significant move with this one, and Kyrie finally had to issue an apology. You can watch Kyrie’s extensive apology in the Instagram post below, in which he expressed his regret for his behavior and his love for everyone.
This is undoubtedly a big thing for the squad, which is off to a terrible 2-6 start this year. They want reasons for hope, and Kyrie’s ban is the exact reverse of that.
Kevin Durant was available to chat to reporter Nick Friedell about the ban, and as you can expect, KD wasn’t too happy about it all. The leading player for the Nets said he simply hopes the drama is finally done since this is less than ideal. The scenario is awful and is bad for everyone involved. I’m hoping we can move on from it,” he remarked.
Then, Durant was questioned on Kyrie’s actions and whether or not the team’s response was appropriate. KD avoided exactly answering the query but made it plain that everyone involved was in the wrong by doing this.
I’m not there to judge anyone. Simply put, I didn’t enjoy anything that occurred. I believe that was all superfluous. We could have continued playing basketball while remaining silent as a group, in my opinion. I simply don’t like any of it, KD said. “I have faith and confidence that the organization will act morally.”
There is no doubt that everyone now wants to move on from this grueling and protracted process for the Nets. As this story develops, be sure to check 24Naijamusic for additional updates.
