Following his anti-Semitic comments, the Brooklyn Nets suspended guard Kyrie Irving for at least five games without pay.

After NBA commissioner Adam Silver requested Irving to publicly apologize for his remarks, the ban was announced on Thursday.

“We were shocked today when Kyrie declined to explicitly state that he has no antisemitic sentiments or recognize any specific offensive content in the movie when given a chance in a media conference.

The Nets said that he had the opportunity to clarify before but didn’t take it.

It is highly troubling, goes against our organization’s principles, and constitutes conduct that is bad for the team when antisemitism isn’t denounced when there is a clear opportunity to do so.

We believe he is currently unsuited to be linked with the Brooklyn Nets.

Before now, Irving and the Nets committed to providing $500,000 to causes and groups fighting bigotry and hatred.
