The Brooklyn Nets suspended Kyrie Irving for no fewer than five games Thursday night, saying they were "dismayed" that Irving did not denounce antisemitism when speaking to reporters.

The Nets issued a three-paragraph statement saying they had originally hoped a "path of education" would be enough for Irving to learn his lesson after a recent social media post promoted a book and film with antisemitic messages.

The suspension comes one day after Irving and the Nets pledged to donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League to combat "hate and intolerance" in a statement that did not mention Irving's actions nor include an apology from the controversial point guard.
