NBA superstar LeBron James said that Brooklyn guard Kyrie Irving should be allowed back on court after the anti-semitism furore that saw the Nets suspend him.
Fallout for Irving continues two weeks after he posted a social media link to a film widely denounced as anti-semitic, with Nike co-founder Phil Knight saying in an interview with CNBC on Thursday that the apparel giant’s relationship with Irving is likely severed for good.
“I would doubt that we go back,” Knight told CNBC in an interview that aired on Thursday. “But I don’t know for sure.”
Nike last seek announced it was “suspending” its relationship with Kyrie, cancelling the launch of the Kyrie 8 shoe that was to have become available this month.
