LeBron James Believes Kyrie Irving Situation Is “Excessive”

LeBron James Clarifies Stance On Kyrie Irving

Today, James took to Twitter to clear the air about his comments. James noted that he does not approve of the Nets’ list of requirements for Kyrie’s return. He feels like it is a bridge too far, and that at the end of the day, Kyrie apologized. Overall, James believes Kyrie should get to play.

“I told you guys that I don’t believe in sharing hurtful information,” LeBron said. “And I’ll continue to be that way but Kyrie apologized and he should be able to play. That’s what I think. It’s that simple. Help him learn- but he should be playing. What he’s asked to do to get back on the floor I think is excessive IMO. He’s not the person that’s being portrayed of him. Anyways back to my rehab session.”

LeBron James previously stated that, “I don’t condone any hate to any kind, to any race… You guys know where I stand.” Continuing on his Twitter timeline, “He apologized, but he caused some harm. I think it’s unfortunate. I don’t stand on the position to harm people when it comes to your voice or you platform.”
