LEGAL STRATEGY THAT JOE TSAI, THE NETS, NBA, AND NIKE OWE KYRIE IRVING FULL CONTRACTUAL BENEFITS, DAMAGES
Kyrie Irving forced to make an unqualified apology
As a 50 year, LEGENDARY, pioneering SUPER AGENT/BUSINESS MANAGER/ADVISOR of the Sports and Entertainment Legal Business field, IT IS MY PROFESSIONAL OPINION THAT THERE IS A LEGAL STRATEGY WITH A GREAT POSSIBILITY THAT JOE TSAI AND THE NETS, THE NBA, AND NIKE, AMONG OTHERS, OWE KYRIE IRVING HIS FULL CONTRACTUAL BENEFITS AND FOR THE DAMAGE TO AND LOSS THEREOF HIS NAME, CREDIBILITY, REPUTATION AND EARNING CAPACITY FOR ENDORSEMENTS, ETC.! THE DAMAGE WAS CAUSED BY THE NETS, THE NBA, AND NIKE THEMSELVES WITH THE ONEROUS PUNISHMENT FORCED UPON KYRIE FOR THE ALLEGED ANTI-SEMITIC ACTIONS THAT HE DID NOT COMMIT AND THE FURTHER PERSECUTION OF IRVING WITH THE IMPOSITION OF THE EXTRA JUDICIAL INHUMANE “SIX CONDITIONS” BY JOE TSAI AND THE NETS WITH COMPLICITY OF THE NBA, THAT HE HAD TO CURE TO OVERCOME HIS BEING “UNFIT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE TEAM”!!
Those steps included a spoken/written apology condemning the film, a $500,000 donation to anti-hate causes, sensitivity and antisemitic training, as well as meetings with the ADL, Jewish leaders, and Nets owner Joe Tsai. The HYPOCRITE NBA Commissioner Adam Silver with his feigned SELF-SERVING, SELF RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION AND OURAGE stepped in and DEMANDED a meeting and an UNQUALIFIED APOLOGY, DENUNCIATION AND CONDEMNATION of the film from Kyrie BEFORE any reinstatement!
Irving issued several written apologies “To All Jewish families and Communities that are hurt and affected from my post, I am deeply sorry to have caused you pain, and I apologize” without outright condemning the film, made a $500,000 donation to anti-hate causes, and met with Tsai and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.
Kyrie apologized when he Did NOT offer an unqualified endorsement and more specifically verbally praise the alleged vile and harmful content contained in the film he allegedly chose to publicize? THOSE ARE ALL JOE TSAI AND THE NETS, THE NBA, AND NIKE, AMONG OTHERS, UNFORCED ERRORS, INTENTIONALLY WRONGFUL CONCLUSIONS OR OPINIONS!! THE ISSUE WAS Semitic/ANTI-Semitic! KYRIE WAS RIGHT ON THAT!
After their meeting, Tsai said “We spent quality time to understand each other and it’s clear to me that Kyrie does not have any beliefs of hate towards Jewish people or any group”.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he has “no doubt” that Irving is not antisemitic” and “The Nets and Kyrie, together with the NBA and NBPA, are working constructively toward a process of forgiveness, healing and education” the National Basketball Players Association told its members in an email.
Yet Irving was NOT permitted to play!
Tsai tweeted the guard “still has work to do.”
The original suspension by the Nets detailed “We were dismayed today, when given an opportunity in a media session, that Kyrie refused to unequivocally say he has no antisemitic beliefs, nor acknowledge specific hateful material in the film,” the Nets wrote in a statement not attributed to any individual. “This was not the first time he had the opportunity — but failed — to clarify.
“Such failure to disavow antisemitism when given a clear opportunity to do so is deeply disturbing, is against the values of our organization, and constitutes conduct detrimental to the team. Accordingly, we are of the view that he is currently unfit to be associated with the Brooklyn Nets.”
“He has to show people that he’s sorry,” Tsai told The New York Post. “What’s important — and what people miss — is he only apologized after he was suspended.”
Jalen Brown, VP of the National Basketball Players Association called the response from Tsai, “alarming for multiple reasons.”
“We have maintained from the beginning, and will continue to repeat every chance we get, that Kyrie and the Players Association unequivocally condemn antisemitism and all other forms of hate,” the union wrote.
It added, “We continue to make sure that Kyrie’s rights, and the rights of all future players, have been protected at every turn, and look forward very soon to a resolution of all matters satisfactory to all parties.”
Apparently he still had to satisfactorily complete “sensitivity and antisemitic training, as well as meetings with the ADL, Jewish leaders”.
Kyrie Irving missed the Brooklyn Nets’ six games after the team issued the guard a five-game minimum suspension for his repeated refusal to apologize for posts linking to an alleged antisemitic film.
The suspension continued and Irving was losing $252,000 per game!
Tsai’s DEMANDS that Irving has to “outright condemn the film”, satisfactorily complete “sensitivity and antisemitic training, as well as meetings with the ADL, Jewish leaders” may be the MOST ONEROUS AND DAMNING EVER IN VIOLATION OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AND RELIGIOUS RIGHTS!
Nets owner Tsai was the face of NBA’s TERRORIZING Kyrie Irving and over one million Uyghur Muslims and other ethnic minorities- has financially contributed to the Chinese government’s Human Rights violations in the cultural genocide of the Muslim population, jailing them in barbed-wire camps, sterilizing women, destroying mosques, forced labor, banning religious activities including the Holy month of Ramadan, and forced “re-education” as an Advocate of China’s Communist Regime! KYRIE IRVING IS Muslim! MOST SEMITES ARE MUSLIMS!
Tsai claims Irving is “UNFIT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE TEAM” because he had declined to say he has no antisemitic views in the week since he posted a link on Twitter to a film with alleged hateful claims about Jewish people.
“Such failure to disavow antisemitism when given a clear opportunity to do so is deeply disturbing, is against the values of our organization, and constitutes conduct detrimental to the team,” the Nets said in a statement.
Irving’s tweet WAS NOT a “TEAM ACTIVITY”, he was acting as an individual without any responsibility nor liability to nor for the team!
The TEAM CAUSED AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE DAMAGE BY THEIR KNEELING DOWN BEFORE AND TO THE JEWISH “ANTI-SEMITIC” KABBALAH MEDIA MACHINERY BULLYING THEM INTO SUBMISSION WITH THEIR ILLEGAL, IRRELIGIOUS DEMANDS!
THE NBA Players Association should have IMMEDIATELY filed a Federal Grievance Complaint and request for arbitration and had the NBA stay ANY and ALL actions by the team until the matter was decided.
The ILLEGAL, IRRELIGIOUS DEMANDS of JOE TSAI AND THE NETS, THE NBA, AND NIKE, AMONG OTHERS, NOT ONLY
Jack Ma standing, Joe Tsai seated
VIOLATE HIS NBA CONTRACT, it violates the tenets of Kyrie’s own self professed religion of Islam and his being forced to denounce anything that may violate his personal beliefs as well, is just further evidence of TSAI AND THE NETS, THE NBA, AND NIKE, AMONG OTHERS, belief that they can coerce Kyrie into their form of forced “re-education” as Tsai has with the over one million Uyghur Muslims in China’s Communist Regime!
Under what paragraph in Irving’s contract with the Nets and the NBA/NBAPA Collective Bargaining Agreement allows for these conditions to be LEGALLY imposed upon a player??!!
IT IS AN OUTRIGHT VIOLATION OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AND RELIGIOUS RIGHTS TO DEMAND HE “outright condemn the film”!
IT IS AN OUTRIGHT VIOLATION OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AND RELIGIOUS RIGHTS TO DEMAND HE “satisfactorily complete “sensitivity and antisemitic training”!
IT IS AN OUTRIGHT VIOLATION OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AND RELIGIOUS RIGHTS TO DEMAND HE “meet with the ADL, Jewish leaders”!
THESE DEMANDS ARE IN DIRECT CORRELATION TO TSAI’S COMMUNIST CHINESE GOVERNMENT GENOCIDE AND TERRORIZING OF THE UYGHUR MUSLIMS HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS OF JAILING THEM IN BARBED-WIRE CAMPS, STERILIZING WOMEN, DESTROYING MOSQUES, FORCED LABOR, BANNING ISLAMIC RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES INCLUDING THE HOLY MONTH OF RAMADAN, AND FORCED “RE-EDUCATION” TO PROGRAM THEM OUT OF ISLAM!!
IT IS APPARENT THAT TSAI AIMS TO FORCE IRVING’S “RE-EDUCATION” TO DEPROGRAM HIM OUT OF HIS ISLAMIC FAITH!!
Here in America, there has been numerous reports of how certain elements of society has attempted to release (someone) from apparent brainwashing, gender/sexual inclinations/deviations, addiction, typically that of a social or religious group/cult, by the systematic re-indoctrination of conventional values!
Additionally, there have been numerous complaints from Jewish/Hebrew/Israeli groups that have found fault with the ADL and certain Jewish leaders that would make meetings with them even MORE PROBLEMATIC and AN OUTRIGHT VIOLATION OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AND RELIGIOUS RIGHTS!
IT IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE CLEAR IN THIS CASE THAT THIS IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF TSAI’S!
KYRIE IRVING IS Muslim and a SEMITE AS ARE MOST MUSLIMS!
It is Tsai that needs to “satisfactorily complete “sensitivity and antisemitic training”!
THIS BRINGS INTO QUESTION AND DEMANDS A RESPONSE FROM TSAI as there HAVE BEEN NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS, BUT THERE IS NO RECORD OF HIS PUBLICLY ADDRESSING, MUCH LESS ISSUING AN APOLOGY, CONDEMNING THE GENOCIDE OF MUSLIMS IN CHINA WITH HIS FUNDS AND TECHNOLOGY that many China experts hold him accountable for!
In China, under Tsai’s leadership, Alibaba funded companies that helped China build “an intrusive, omnipresent surveillance state that uses emerging technologies to track individuals with greater efficiency,” according to a 2020 congressional report.
Those companies are blacklisted by the U.S. government for supporting a “campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention and high-tech surveillance” through state-of-the-art racial profiling technologies that are being used widely in the western region of Xinjiang, where the government has forced more than 1 million Uyghur Muslims and other ethnic minorities into barbed-wire “re-education” camps, policies that have been described as cultural “genocide” by the United States, several other countries and human rights organizations.
“Joe Tsai has had all the warning in the world about what is happening in Xinjiang, and if he thought it was important to extricate Alibaba, it would have happened,” said Matt Schrader, a China analyst for the International Republican Institute, which promotes democracy around the world. “Joe Tsai is the second-most powerful person at the company.”
On Oct. 7, 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that 28 Chinese organizations — including Megvii and SenseTime, the Alibaba-funded artificial intelligence companies — had been added to the “Entity List,” which imposes trade restrictions on people or institutions engaged in activity “contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States.”
Surveillance is at the core of China’s efforts to control the Uyghur population, a policy the government says is necessary to stop terrorism and maintain stability. ESPN reported in 2020 that American coaches at an NBA training academy in Xinjiang were surveilled and harassed. One coach said he was detained three times, comparing the atmosphere to “World War II Germany.”
JOE TSAI IS ANTI-SEMITIC!!!
Tsai’s DISGUSTING activities has now brought into play legally compelling responses requiring legal answers to his involvement in the
Sanction China over Uyghur “Genocide”
funding of the Communist Chinese Genocide of Uyghur Muslims, their forced re-education/de-programing, renouncing their illegal Human Rights policy violations, among others, THAT HE AND THE NBA DO NOT WANT TO BE INVESTIGATED, EXPOSED NOR LITIGATED!!
ADAM SILVER SHEKEL HIGHNESS- WHERE IS YOUR SELF-SERVING, SELF RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION AND OURAGE AT ANTI-SEMITE JOE TSAI FUNDING Chinese Genocide OF Uyghur Muslims, jailing them in barbed-wire camps, sterilized women, destroyed mosques, forced labor, banned Holy Ramadan, forced “re-education”!
“Amid growing international condemnation, the [People’s Republic of China (PRC)] continues to commit genocide and crimes against humanity” in the Xinjiang region, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement. “The United States reiterates its calls on the PRC to bring an end to the repression of Uyghurs, who are predominantly Muslim, and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups in Xinjiang, including by releasing all those arbitrarily held in internment camps and detention facilities.“
United States and its allies in Canada, Britain and the European Union announced sanctions on several Chinese officials alleged to have links to what U.S. officials say is a genocidal campaign against Uyghur Muslims. “These actions demonstrate our ongoing commitment to working multilaterally to advance respect for human rights and shining a light on those in the PRC government and [Chinese Communist Party] responsible for these atrocities,“ Blinken said.
U. S. Treasury also added that “Since at least late 2016, repressive tactics have been used by the XPSB against the Uyghurs and members of other ethnic minorities in the region, including mass detentions and surveillance.“
Tsai has publicly defended some of China’s most controversial policies. He described the government’s brutal crackdown on dissent as necessary to promote economic growth; defended a law used to imprison scores of pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong as necessary to squelch separatism; and, when questioned about human rights, asserted that most of China’s 1.4 billion citizens are “happy about where they are.”
Matt Turpin, the former China director for the National Security Council, said Tsai is “under significant pressure to be seen as doing what Beijing wants him to do. I don’t necessarily fault him. He’s in this impossible position.”
But he said Alibaba’s support of Megvii and SenseTime and human rights abuses were well documented and should give the NBA pause.
“Last I checked, that’s a pretty abysmal thing to be associated with,” Turpin said. “In today’s NBA, I guess it’s not a problem.”
Last December, the U.S. Treasury Department added Megvii, SenseTime and six other Chinese companies to a separate blacklist that prohibits Americans from holding stock in those firms. A department spokesman accused the companies of “actively cooperating with the government’s efforts to repress members of ethnic and religious minority groups.”
Matt Schrader, the China analyst, said Tsai has a choice, ”Joe Tsai could resign,” , “He doesn’t have to do this. He’s a Canadian citizen. He has the freedom to make that choice so long as Alibaba continues to facilitate and participate in a genocide.”
Then Vice President Mike Pence, who later addressed the controversy in a speech, saying: “The NBA is acting like a wholly owned subsidiary of that authoritarian regime.”
Republicans and Democrats in Congress rallied and railed against the NBA. Silver then issued a statement, acknowledging the league’s first comments “left people angered, confused or unclear” and affirmed the NBA’s commitment to free expression. The next day, a bipartisan letter signed by, among others, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, said it was “outrageous that the NBA has caved to Chinese government demands for contrition.”
In a statement provided to ESPN, Silver said, “We have always supported and will continue to support every member of the NBA family, including Daryl Morey and Enes Freedom, expressing their personal views on social and political issues.”

The NBA declined to make Silver available for an interview.
“It doesn’t matter if you call him an entrepreneur, a sports owner or a philanthropist, he is channeling the kind of Chinese authoritarianism into the U.S. with a more soft approach that’s quite daunting,” Law said.
ESPN could find no record of Tsai publicly addressing China’s repressive policies in Xinjiang or Alibaba’s funding of companies whose technology was used by the government in the abuses. But many China experts hold him accountable. NBA China is valued at $5 billion. (ESPN owns 5% of NBA China.)
Like all foreign companies, the NBA operates in China at the whim of the Communist Party.
Neither Silver nor anyone from the league office has commented on human rights abuses in China.
AS HE HAS DEMANDED OF IRVING, TSAI MUST ISSUE AN APOLOGY CONDEMNING THE GENOCIDE OF MUSLIMS IN CHINA WITH HIS FUNDS AND TECHNOLOGY, DONATING $500 MILLION TO ANTI-ISLAMIC CAUSES, SATISFACTORILY COMPLETING SENSITIVITY AND TRAINING, MEETING WITH ISLAMIC LEADERS AND KYRIE IRVING!
AGAIN, Tsai’s DISGUSTING activities has now brought into play legally compelling responses requiring legal answers to his involvement in the funding of the Communist Chinese Genocide of Uyghur Muslims, their forced re-education/de-programing, renouncing their illegal Human Rights policy violations, among others, THAT HE AND THE NBA DO NOT WANT TO BE INVESTIGATED, EXPOSED NOR LITIGATED!!
AGAIN, IT IS MY PROFESSIONAL OPINION THAT THERE IS A GREAT POSSIBILITY THAT JOE TSAI AND THE NETS, THE NBA, AND NIKE, AMONG OTHERS, OWE KYRIE IRVING HIS FULL CONTRACTUAL BENEFITS AND FOR THE DAMAGE TO AND LOSS THEREOF HIS NAME, CREDIBILITY, REPUTATION AND EARNING CAPACITY FOR ENDORSEMENTS, ETC.! THE DAMAGE WAS CAUSED BY THE NETS, THE NBA, AND NIKE THEMSELVES WITH THE ONEROUS PUNISHMENT FORCED UPON KYRIE FOR THE ALLEGED ANTI-SEMITIC ACTIONS THAT HE DID NOT COMMIT AND THE FURTHER PERSECUTION OF IRVING WITH THE IMPOSITION OF THE EXTRA JUDICIAL INHUMANE “SIX CONDITIONS” BY JOE TSAI AND THE NETS WITH COMPLICITY OF THE NBA, THAT HE HAD TO CURE TO OVERCOME HIS BEING “UNFIT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE TEAM”!!
