“He should be playing” – LeBron James believes terms for Kyrie Irving’s NBA return are “excessive”

published

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has spoken out about how he feels the terms set for Kyrie Irving’s NBA return are “excessive”.

Kyrie Irving has been in the news for all the wrong reasons this season. The Brooklyn Nets superstar got into trouble after he posted a tweet promoting a film portraying anti-Semitic sentiments, and when given multiple chances by the media to apologize or address his mistake – Irving kept his stance and hence was suspended by the Nets for five games without pay.

It was only last week that Irving posted the Amazon page for “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America” – a 2018 film that heavily showcases anti-Semitic tropes and ideologies. The tweet meant that Irving received plenty of backlash, while the Nets as well as owner Joe Tsai came out with statements condemning Kyrie’s actions. However, Kyrie did not apologize or hold himself accountable for his actions even when repeatedly given chances by the media to do so.

Kyrie’s inability to do so forced the Nets to suspend the star – however, it turns out that Kyrie has been given a few terms to follow if he wants to make his NBA return. The terms will require Kyrie to apologize, condemn the film and donate $500,000 to any cause or organization that fights racial bias and hatred – before meeting with the Anti-Defamation League, Jewish leaders and finally meeting Joe Tsai to address his understanding.

However, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has said that the terms set for Kyrie’s return to action are “excessive.”

What did LeBron James have to say about the terms set for Kyrie Irving’s return?

Writing on his Twitter, LeBron said: “I told you guys that I don’t believe in sharing hurtful information. And I’ll continue to be that way but Kyrie apologized and he should be able to play. That’s what I think. It’s that simple. Help him learn – but he should be playing. What he’s asked to do to get back on the floor is excessive IMO. He’s not the person he’s been shown to be.”

This quote comes days after LeBron condemned Kyrie being “hurtful” to a lot of people, but James seems to have changed his stance after Irving apologized for his actions.
