Nike suspends relationship with Kyrie Irving, does not drop new shoes
Just as you are tired of reading about Kyrie Irving, sports writers are equally tired of trying to come up with good guides to the guard stories currently suspended by the Brooklyn Nets. I wish Pepsi had suspended its relationship with Irving beyond Nike because it felt like there was an Uncle Drew joke waiting to be written.
There’s something along the lines of, “Everybody has a crazy relative who says questionable things at family get-togethers, and Pepsi is your aunt who had enough when she officially filed for a divorce.” filed for divorce from Uncle Drew.”
Unfortunately, I don’t have anything close to good for Nike released a statement saying it has suspended its relationship with Irving and will not release his latest shoe.
“At Nike, we believe there is no room for hate speech and we condemn any form of anti-Semitism. As a result, we have made the decision to suspend our relationship with Kyrie Irving effective immediately and will no longer launch Kyrie 8.
“We are deeply saddened and disappointed by the situation and its impact on people.”
We knew this was coming. We might not have guessed what the last act of catching up to Irving was, but after learning nothing the damn thing from his anti-vax program – except if you rage long enough, someone will accept – an incident is in his future. The fact that it was his own tweet made him not as poetic as if it had been COVID. This is more humorous though. (Not anti-Semitism; Irving goes full Plaxico Burress with his Twitter account.)
Being the smartest person in the room is hard work, which is why valedictorians can often be found in the library in their spare time. I doubt Kyrie even knew where that building was during his semester at Duke, because if he did, he’d know how to tell the difference between reliable sources and some idiots playing tricks. anti-disease scam in a documentary published on iMovie.

By the way, the Anti-Defamation League and the Nets sent a letter to aspiring NFL owner Jeff Bezos and Amazon leaders ask them to stop selling the material or at least add a disclaimer for it. (Well, that sounds as weird as what critics have been asking social media companies to do with similar misinformation for years. Supervillains exist in real life. ; they just raised $10 billion.)
Early Friday, no GM Sean Marks Saying Irving’s apology isn’t enough to shorten his 5-match suspension and more work needs to be done. Your prediction is as good as any course of Judaism 101, or he sat down with the principalBut my guess is we will see him back on the field this season.
While I’m not sure how the sponsorships work/if Irving can still play his Nikes on the field, maybe Skechers have an extra pair of sneakers he can lace up.
