The Brooklyn Nets on Thursday suspended Kyrie Irving for at least five games because he hasn’t disavowed reports that he has antisemitic beliefs.

 

Earlier on Thursday Kyrie faced the media on Thursday.

The suspension, which will see Irving lose pay for five games, came just hours after the basketball star refused to issue an apology to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver for posting an link to an antisemitic film on his Twitter feed.

Later Kyrie Irving posts on Instagram that he’s “deeply sorry”

Did the Nets do the right thing? Or do you think Irving’s personal beliefs have nothing to do with his NBA career?
