The Brooklyn Nets PG Kyrie Irving was fined $25,000 for not meeting the preseason media obligations requested by the NBA. The NBA players are required by the league to answer questions from the media at the beginning of the training camp period.

Irving refused to talk to reporters since December 1st, but instead posted on his Instagram on Friday December 4, 2020 with the following statement. 

“I pray we utilize the ‘fine money’ for the marginalized communities in need, especially seeing where our world is presently. (I am) I am here for Peace, Love, and Greatness. So, stop distracting me and my team, and appreciate the Art. We move different over here.

I do not talk to Pawns. My attention is worth more.”

Throughout Irving’s NBA career, this is not the first run in he has had with the media. In 2019, Kyrie Irving spoke to Yahoo Sports Chris Haynes, admitting that he hasn’t always handled the media perfectly and the way he speaks out is just not him. The Nets PG did admit that he was learning to deal with the attention better as it was a part of his growth to be a star player.

It is believed that Irving may not be bothered by the league’s punishments. Due to the salary that is being paid to Irving it will not be detrimental.
