Nets suspend Kyrie Irving for at least 5 games without pay

The Hill

NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets are suspending Kyrie Irving for at least five games without pay, saying they were dismayed by his failure to “unequivocally say he has no antisemitic beliefs.”

Hours after Irving refused to issue the apology that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver sought for posting a link to an antisemitic work on his Twitter feed, the Nets said that Irving is “currently unfit to be associated with the Brooklyn Nets.”

“We were dismayed today, when given an opportunity in a media session, that Kyrie refused to unequivocally say he has no antisemitic beliefs, nor acknowledge specific hateful material in the film. This was not the first time he had the opportunity — but failed — to clarify,” the Nets said in a statement.

“Such failure to disavow antisemitism when given a clear opportunity to do so is deeply disturbing, is against the values of our organization, and constitutes conduct detrimental to the team. Accordingly, we are of the view that he is currently unfit to be associated with the Brooklyn Nets.”

  1. Related, Kanye: I look at this because I’m alive today, and it is playing out like a current-day morality play. Psyop or not, it’s bringing many people to The Questioning Table where old truths get overturned and ancient schemes are revealed.

    Just my opinion but I think such overturning and revelation can help the cause for freedom. I have not (like some) yet concluded that this particular show is all scripted. Yet, ever I watch with a cautious eye.

    What Kanye’s Jewish trainer threatened him with.

    “In the texts, the rapper is warned that if he ‘does not apologize to my people,’ he will be institutionalized again…”

    The trainer goes on to say…

    “Second option, I have you institutionalized again where they medicate the crap out of you, and you go back to Zombie-land forever. Play-date with the kids just won’t be the same.”

    Crazy, f-ked up power-trip, no?
