Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai has cleared the air on Kyrie Irving’s return to the court after he was handed a five-game suspension. Notably, Irving was banned from the team last week over his ‘anti-semitic’ tweets. Brooklyn Nets have won six games while they have suffered a defeat in seven matches so far in the 2022-23 season.
Talking about Kyrie Irving, the point-guard of the Nets could have made his comeback today in California, but Nets coach Jacque Vaughn revealed that he won’t be playing against Los Angeles Lakers. “I do know (Irving’s) not available (Sunday), he said.
Above all, Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai has now opened up on his meeting with Irving and his family. The 58-year-old while talking to The Post said, “he still has work to do”. “He has to show people that he’s sorry. What’s important - and what people miss - is he only apologized after he was suspended”, Tsai further added.
Earlier, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate LeBron James had backed the Nets star to return to basketball court, believing that Irving is “not anti-Semitic”.
