The Brooklyn Nets’ superstar Kyrie Irving had a vigorous response to getting fined for not attending media sessions last week.
The league issued a $25,000 fine to both Irving and the Nets, per Shams Charania. The 2016 champion sent a message to the NBA and the media via an official statement.
In the statement, Irving used a quote from human rights activist Malcolm X and called for the money to be donated to “marginalized communities”.
Irving has denied multiple requests to speak with the media since preseason camp started on Dec. 1.
