Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets have each been fined $35,000 for Irving’s repeated refusal to speak with the media.
Both Irving and the Nets were fined over Irving â€œviolating league rules governing media interview access.â€
All NBA players are required to speak with media, and it’s written in their contracts.
Irving is a repeat offender of not dealing with reporters, and he was also fined $25,000 because of this back in December earlier this season.
â€œI donâ€™t talk to Pawns,â€ heÂ wrote on a post on Instagram after the fine. â€œMy attention is worth more.â€
It’s still confusing on why Irving refuses to speak to reporters in post game interviews, but the league will likely keep sending out fines if he continues to do so.
