Reggie Miller called out players for their lack of response to Kyrie Irving and his antisemitic comments made on social media.
Last week, Irving tweeted a link to the film “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake up Black America,” seemingly promoting its antisemitism and disinformation.
Miller, a former NBA star turned basketball commentator, spoke his mind during TNT’s broadcast of the Chicago Bulls-Brooklyn Nets game Tuesday night.
“In years past, this league has been great because the players have led the way and they have strong voices,” said Miller. “When (former Los Angeles Clippers owner) Donald Sterling stepped in it, when (Phoenix Suns owner) Robert Sarver just recently stepped in it, our voices in the basketball community and our players were vocally strong in some type of discipline being handed down – or be gone.
“The players have dropped the ball on this case when it’s been one of their own. It’s been crickets.”
