Deni Avdija on Kyrie Irving: ‘I just hope he’s sorry’

Since he is the only Jewish player in the NBA, Deni Avdija was unsurprisingly asked about the Kyrie Irving affair, which has been agitating the NBA for several days.

After the match between Washington and Brooklyn, the Israeli winger of the Wizards indeed spoke for long minutes about the disturbing behavior of the leader of the Nets, on social networks and in the press.

I followed this case, yes. Listen I think [que Kyrie] is a great player and role model for young people. And I think he made a mistake. Lots of people watch him, listen to him. Everyone has the right to think, to do what they want. But I don’t think it makes sense to have published [ce post], because many young people follow it and may think it is the truth. I just hope he’s sorry » said the former Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

As for the sanctions taken against Kyrie Irving – a suspension of at least five matches from the Nets and the suspension of his contract with Nike – Deni Avdija considers that they are fair enough, and insists on the importance to hold players accountable for their actions and behaviors.

Yes, I think there should be consequences to players’ actions and words. And I don’t know what the league has planned, but I think it’s important to make it clear that there is no place in our league for such comments. he concluded.
