Kevin Durant Was Asked About Kyrie Irving’s Conduct, Nets’ Handling

On Thursday, the Nets suspended point guard Kyrie Irving at least five game without pay for promoting an antisemitic film on Twitter. Irving has since apologized on Instagram after he gave multiple controversial press conferences in which he failed to say sorry.

Irving’s teammate Kevin Durant hadn’t spoken about this specific situation until Friday, and the star forward chose not to criticize the point guard. Durant appeared to say he believes the actions taken by the organization were too intrusive.

“I ain’t here to judge nobody or talk down to nobody for how they feel their views and things,” he said. “I just didn’t like anything that went on; I felt like it was all unnecessary. I felt like we could have just kept playing basketball and kept quiet as an organization.”
