Kyrie Irving’s latest headlines may have all been about his situation with the Brooklyn Nets and his contract after a first-round sweep for the team, but the one thing Kyrie is known for is staying committed to his political stances. Irving is never afraid to speak out, whether people agree with him or not, and his statements often revolve around real-world issues that the communities he is a part of are impacted by.
One of the biggest news stories in the basketball world in recent times has been the continued detaining of WNBA star Brittney Griner in Russia after vape cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis were reportedly found in her bag on her way back to the United States. Griner has been in Russian custody since, with many around the league calling for her to be brought home as soon as possible.
Irving has now taken to social media to strongly urge the government of the United States to make something happen, sharing a petition that is asking for something to be done in this situation.
