Former Miami Heat big man Meyers Leonard said an anti-Semitic slur, apologized, then got fined and suspended. The Washington Wizards rookie Deni Avdija was asked about Leonard’s case, via NBC Sports:
“Listen, I don’t really want to get into those kinds of things. But I think Meyers didn’t have those kinds of intentions,” Avdija said.
“I think he did a mistake, we know that. We don’t accept those words. But I know he’s a good dude and he didn’t mean to do that. Hopefully, he understood the mistake.”
