We’re all well aware of Kyri Irving’s actions, as the Brooklyn Nets’ guard has been extremely controversial as of late. He and the organization released a joint statement about the anti-Semitic posts Irving has been sharing. Now, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver isn’t happy with the statement and is going to meet with the veteran guard one on one.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver To Meet With Kyrie Irving

On Wednesday, Irving and the Nets released a joint statement about what’s transpired in the past week. Even though the statement focuses on negating Kyrie Irving’s controversial posts, it’s still not a direct quote from the star guard. It’s a long read, but here’s the full statement.

After seeing that long joint statement, it turns out NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is not satisfied. For that reason, he’s calling a meeting with Irving to discuss the matters at hand, per Robert Littal.

As you could guess, the NBA world is buzzing about it. Some applaud Silver and hope he delivers a punishment to Kyrie Irving. Meanwhile, others believe the Commissioner responded too slowly to the entire situation.

Fair point. But at least Adam Silver isn’t just sitting back on the sidelines.

There is no way of knowing what will happen until it is said and done. However, this speculation is very much in play.

Keep an eye on this situation, as more information will come to light shortly. Maybe Adam Silver can talk some sense to Kyrie Irving. We won’t know though until another official statement is released.
