‘He apologized and should be able to play’ LeBron James’ stance on Kyrie Irving’s suspension comes as shocking revelation

LeBron James always stayed beside his teammates on the basketball court to help the Lakers win. However, off the court, he has appeared to be supportive of his teammates.

The punishment handed down to Kyrie Irving for refusing to affirm he had no anti-Semitic sentiments has been called “extreme” by LeBron James.

Irving has been suspended by the Brooklyn Nets without pay for at least five games, as of last Thursday. Although the organization claims to have a detailed plan outlining what Irving must do before he can return to work, it has not released that information to the public.

After the announcement by the NBA commissioners, James posted his thoughts on Twitter.

“I told you guys that I don’t believe in sharing hurtful information,” James stated. “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.”

After the match against the Utah Jazz, James reported, “I don’t condone any hate to any kind. To any race. To Jewish communities, to Black communities, to Asian communities. You guys know where I stand.” The Lakers star also stated that Kyrie did cause harm but “can’t speak for 450 players.”

The tweets from James continued on Thursday when he defended Irving’s integrity.

“Help him learn- but he should be playing,” James went on. “What he’s asked to do to get back on the floor I think is excessive IMO (in my opinion). He’s not the person that’s being portrayed of him. Anyways back to my rehab session.”

Even though James has questioned the harshness of Irving’s penalty, he is not alone among NBA players. Jaylen Brown, a great forward for the Boston Celtics and a vice president of the National Basketball Players Association, has similar worries.
