Kyrie Irving was suspended indefinitely on Thursday by the Brooklyn Nets for his failure to offer a sincere apology over his Twitter promotion of a documentary that promotes anti-Semitism. While several former NBA players have condemned Irving’s actions, until now no current NBA player had spoken out against it.
The Cleveland Cavaliers’ Robin Lopez became the first active player to take some sort of action denouncing Irving’s actions. While Lopez did not formerly issue a statement, his Twitter activity has made clear his stance on the issue. Former NBA player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s latest column includes a criticism on Irving and Lopez retweeted that column.
