The Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving took center court before Wednesday’s game to issue a plea on behalf of WNBA player Brittney Griner.

“I appreciate us being able to share this floor together, all of us as brothers. But the big picture that’s going on in the world is free our sister, Brittney Griner, please,” Irving said, microphone in hand, to a roar of applause from the crowd.

“Please, POTUS, do your job. Everybody do your job. Please bring our sister home. And we wouldn’t be doing our jobs to the best of our ability if we didn’t stand on what we believe in.”
