LeBron James Thinks Kyrie Irving Should Be Allowed to Play

LeBron to the rescue. 

Last week it was reported that the Nets wanted the suspended Irving to go through a checklist of actions for sharing a link to an anti-semitic movie on Twitter.

Via Shams Charania

1. Apologize/condemn movie
2. Make $500K donation to anti-hate causes
3. Go through sensitivity training
4. Go through anti-Semitic training
5. Meet with Anti-Defamation League and Jewish leaders
6. Meet with Nets owner Joe Tsai to demonstrate understanding

On Thursday, LeBron said he felt that the Nets were asking too much from Kyrie and felt the his punishment has been “excessive.”

“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 I think is excessive IMO. He’s not the person that’s being portrayed of him. Anyways back to my rehab session”

As for Kyrie, he has yet to speak to Nets GM Sean Marks about coming back.

Sean Marks says he’s spoken to Kyrie Irving’s representatives but not Kyrie himself. Marks said there is no update on where things stand with Irving, who is serving a five-game suspension.

The NBPA agrees with LeBron’s sentiment and plan to appeal Irving’s suspension.
