Last week, Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving kicked off the 2022-2023 NBA season with a special message of support for WNBA star Brittney Griner.
Irving and the rest of the team stood at center court as he delivered a message to the President.
“Please, please POTUS, do your job. Everybody do your job, please bring our sister home,” he said.
Irving then thanked the crowd for attending the game, which prompted chants of “Kyrie” from the audience.
Stephen A. Smith had a lot to say about Kyrie’s words, so he decided to mock him for telling somebody to do their job.
Here’s what the ESPN personality had to say to Charlamagne tha God.
Griner was detained in Moscow in February when airport officials found cannabis oil inside her luggage. A Russian court convicted her of drug smuggling in August and sentenced her to nine years.
The WNBA star has been imprisoned so long that she celebrated her 32nd birthday in a Russian jail.
Griner’s legal team plans to appeal the Russian court’s sentence on 25 October.
Joe Biden met with the WNBA star’s wife, Cherelle Griner, and reportedly assured her he would fight to bring Brittney Griner home.
As of now, the Russians have not been playing ball in a possible prisoner swap.
Cherelle Griner fears that she will be transferred out of Moscow to work in a Russian camp should the appeal and attempts at a swap fail.
