As a guard for the Brooklyn Nets Kyrie Irving is serving his suspension of “no fewer than five games” after posting a link to an anti-Semitic film on his Twitter page, his future in the NBA is in question.
Some believe Irving, who is in the final year of a four-year, $136 million contract, will struggle to find a team to sign with after the season in Brooklyn.
But one NBA legend doesn’t think so seven-time All-Star will struggle to find teams willing to sign him for his services.

“Owners are greedy,” Julius Erving told TMZ Sports at LAX over the weekend. “He’ll end up in the league and play for someone, no matter how toxic he is.”
“As long as he’s young enough to shoot those buckets and do what he’s doing, be Kyrie, he’ll have a job,” he said.
Irving’s troubles began when he shared a link to the movie Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America in late October.

The film description on Amazon states that the film “unveils the true identity of the children of Israel by proving the true ethnicity of Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the sons of Ham, Shem and Japheth.

After being convicted by the Nets and owner Joe Tsai, Irving released a statement said he “didn’t mean any harm” by posting the link to the film.
Later in the week, when Irving had the opportunity to unequivocally reject the film, he deflected the questions.

He was later suspended by the Nets after “refusing to state unequivocally that he has no anti-Semitic beliefs, nor to acknowledge certain hateful material” from the film.
Irving reportedly did given a to-do list from the Nets to return to the team, which includes completing anti-Semitic/anti-hate training and meeting with representatives of the Anti-Defamation League and leaders of Brooklyn’s Jewish community.
