Kyrie Irving Tells Joe Biden & Others To Bring Brittney Griner Home

The Brooklyn Nets recently had their first game of the season and faced off against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Nets ended up losing in a bad loss. Despite the loss, the game started off with Kyrie Irving delivering a message dedicated to freeing WNBA star Brittney Griner.

The WNBA player has been locked up in a Russian prison since February 2022, with her wife and others calling on the release of Griner. Irving spoke ahead of the game, calling out President Joe Biden.

Irving said, “I appreciate us being able to share this floor together, all of us as brothers but the big picture that’s going in the world is free our sister, Brittney Griner, please!” The NBA star continued saying, “POTUS, do your job! Everybody do your job! Please bring our sister home.”

Earlier this week, lawyers representing Brittney Griner say the WNBA star’s birthday was “difficult” as she turned 32 years old while still in Russian confinement.

“It was an unusual birthday today,” Maria Blagovolina, one of Griner’s lawyers and a partner at Rybalkin Gortsunyan Dyakin and Partners, tells PEOPLE.

Blagovolina and Alexander Boykov, who also represents Griner, visited her in prison on Tuesday. Griner is “very strong” says Blagovolina, before adding that Tuesday was “of course a difficult day for her, you can imagine because she is all alone in a jail in a foreign country.”
