This is the J.R. Sportbrief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. Happy Thursday night to you. I'm going to be hanging out for the next four hours. This is when I get started.

10 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Pacific. I'm being joined by my main man holding it down, Jack Stern. And I'm being joined by every single one of you all. Everybody listening all over North America. And we got a lot to do.

Tons. Thursday Night Football is going on right now. I think they're trying to play football. The Carolina. Well, keep the music playing. I love my music. Let it play.

There we go. The Carolina Panthers right now. They are ahead of the Falcons 13 to 3. It's in the third quarter.

It's rainy. It's ugly. And that's an appropriate description of the football. We'll talk about this game as it concludes. These Atlanta Falcons, man, they are.

I don't know. My friends here in Atlanta. I'll just tell you this.

They're fool's gold. Everybody knows they need a quarterback. Marcus Mariota has already thrown an interception or he's thrown one. And this is just a battle of the bums. I'm sorry.

It just so happens to be that the Carolina Panthers are a little bit further down the the standings than the Falcons are. We'll talk about this game when it concludes. Shout outs to all my friends in Rochester, New York.

Later on in the show, I also will play some audio with you from my media for the movement tour stop at the University of Rochester. Everybody in western New York. Absolutely amazing. Josh Allen, his elbow still looks like a problem. LeBron James. It appears that this man has tweaked his groin again. It's like every year at this latter stage of his career, it's his groin.

Now it is again. Matthew Stafford. His wife had some issues or took issue with the NFL that he has entered into concussion protocol. If things couldn't get worse for the Rams.

Well, here it is. Things are always bad for the Raiders. They have a couple of players that have gone on.

I are on the I.R. Darren Waller, Hunter Renfro. And it's been a busy day. The Colts. It seems like every day there's a new defense and there still is another one.

And then we even had news today that a team that's in the process of being sold or being explored to be sold. The Washington commanders. Like they're legitimately being sued. By the attorney general of Washington, D.C. You can't make this stuff up. And I'm not just suing the Washington commanders. They're going to be suing the team, the NFL, and they got Goodell on there, too. Might as well, right?

It's a trifecta. And so we'll get into that in a few minutes. Before I do anything, it's a simple question. Jack Stern, how are you, my man? I'm doing well, except for the fact that daylight savings time, J.R. is starting to mess with my head.

I feel like they should call it daylight losing time because now it's starting to get dark at four thirty in the afternoon. And I can't believe it's going to be that way back here on the East Coast in New York until February. No one is forcing you to stay in New York. You know that, right?

I do know that. Maybe you can rent a condo out next door to you for you, J.R. I'll reimburse you, OK?

OK. Yeah, I want I want my main man Jack to get some sunlight and we'll work on that for him. As I mentioned, we're here for the next four hours. If you want to holler at me, it's simple. We got a phone number. It's eight five five two one two four CBS.

That's eight five five two one two four CBS. You can find me. I am online everywhere.

That is at J.R. Sport Brief Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. And we just put out a tweet here letting you know everything that we'll discuss.

So if you follow me, you already know. Let's get this sad sack of a franchise team out the way. If you thought things were bad with the Washington commanders when you had your owner like suing elderly ticket holders, if you thought things were bad with the Washington commanders when your owner refused to change the name until we had a catastrophe, a tragedy here in the United States of America. If you thought that things were bad when the cheerleaders were paraded around like pieces of meat. You know, it's bad when the attorney general.

Where the hell you play is coming for you. When you actually have a lawsuit coming your way. Against Roger Goodell, the team, Daniel Snyder, the NFL and the commissioner of the league. Roger Goodell, like, whoa, what are we doing here?

How often do you hear about a district attorney waking up and saying. This team needs to get got. I mean, if this was the reality, then I'm sure the attorney general or the state of New York would have sued the New York Knicks a long time ago. Actually, make them be a decent basketball team. What are you suing them for? For being absolute garbage and trash.

It'd be nice. Maybe some of these teams would be held to a higher standard where they actually have to go out and, I don't know, run a decent franchise. And that's one of the reasons why Washington is being sued right now, because they're not a decent franchise.

They haven't been a decent franchise. And so they filed a civil lawsuit. Basically saying that the team and the NFL. Colluded to deceive fans.

And everybody who lives in the District of Columbia. About the league's investigation into the team's toxic workplace, you might recall. Dan Snyder. And the commanders were fined 10 million dollars. How they treated their employees.

I can go up and down the ranks. Sexual harassment. And just that that's just the start. And so he's basically saying that they've tried to cover this up. Just to prop up the team so they can continue to make money.

So they could continue to take advantage of fans. I can never remember anything like this. This is unprecedented. A matter of fact, here's the Washington, D.C. attorney general detail the accusations.

Carl Racine. We allege that Mr. Snyder lied to D.C. consumers when he denied knowing anything, anything about the allegations of a hostile work environment and culture of sexual harassment. He directed his employees to create voyeuristic videos of partially clad cheerleaders from calendar shoots, from footage that the cheerleaders had no idea even existed. When Mr. Snyder was told about allegations of male executives and employees making unwanted sexual comments and propositions toward other employees, he was often dismissive. And you know the trick.

He blamed repeatedly the victims. Damn. Lawyers are good. Well, some of them. They always know how to paint a picture.

The good lawyers always make you go, damn, at the end of the statement. And everything if you pay attention. Well, you don't have to pay attention deeply to the Washington commanders.

I hope you wouldn't. The football has been subpar and the organization is also trash. But if you ever hear anything, all you hear is negativity. What is the most positive thing that you've ever heard about the Washington commanders?

And I'd say, I don't know. 20 years. What is the most positive thing that's happened to this organization and this franchise? Since Daniel Snyder took over.

I can go down a laundry list of terrible things. If I have to think about a football decision, what about Albert Haynsworth? If I have to think about the team name, what about him swearing up and down for years that he would never change the name?

It's of George Floyd being murdered and change air quotes all over the country for him to do so. Sponsors saying it's time for you to change the damn name. Daniel Snyder has been a blot.

He's been a black cloud. Just over this organization. And to be sued on the way out the door. This is almost the icing on the cake.

He needs a good boot on the way out. And this is a civil lawsuit, not a criminal one. This is the attorney general now explaining the decision to sue. The National Football League and its commissioner, Roger Goodell, Mr. Snyder and the commanders misled the public about what was being done to address the allegations of harassment and the toxic culture that the commanders maintained. They did all of this to hide the truth, protect their images and let the profits continue to roll. That's why we're suing Mr. Snyder, the commanders, the National Football League and the commissioner, Roger Goodell.

Because you can't lie to D.C. residents in order to protect your image, your profits and get away with it, no matter who you are. Oh, and I felt we're coming for you. We don't care if you're the NFL.

We don't care if you're the Washington commanders. We're going to sue you. You mistreat the fans, you lie to them, you deceive them. We're going to sue you. Part of it is true.

Well, almost everything that he said is true. Isn't this what teams do? If you have to think about the Washington commanders, have they have they let anyone know why Dan Snyder was suspended? Forced to be away from the team? Did the NFL actually detail why outside of saying that it is a toxic work environment? Why this this man was fined 10 million dollars?

Do we know exactly why he's selling the team? We can all assume so. Here, look, I'm not a lawyer. I can't tell you the merit of this lawsuit.

Is it going to be able to stand? I like the idea. I like the premise, though. An organization, a league, they flim flam the fans and the fans spend their hard earned money and they get disaster or they get a disaster of a product. Fans should get their money back, right? It is sports. You're going to win, you're going to lose. There's no guarantee that you're going to show up and spend your hard earned cash for a game and that the team is going to win.

There's no guarantee there. But are you being deceived away from the game, away from the lines? Is the organization running your bills up and taking you for a ride? We care about our fan base.

We're trying to do our best. Meanwhile, they're just a giant frat house? Is that going to stand up in a court of law? I don't know.

I don't think so. But as I mentioned, I love the idea. These teams are supposed to be a representative of the city. These teams are supposed to belong to the fans.

The owners are supposed to be just... And if you own a sports franchise, if you own a team and you're taking the fans for a ride, can the city sue? I guess the answer is yes. Are they going to make money in return?

I don't know about that. And so, of course, Daniel Snyder, he has his lawyers on speed dial. You heard from the attorney general. And the Washington commander's official response is.

For over two years, the Snyder's acknowledged that an unacceptable workplace culture had existed within their organization for several years, and they have apologized many times for allowing that to happen. We agree with the attorney general on one thing. The public needs to know the truth. Although the lawsuit repeats a lot of innuendo, half truths and lies, we welcome this opportunity to defend the organization for the first time in a court of law and to establish once and for all what is fact and what is fiction. Whatever lawyer wrote that earned him money.

Daniel Snyder needs to give them a different raise for being so damn dramatic. You gotta love a lawyer. A lot of drama.

A lot of entertainment. Better than Judge Judy. Better than the People's Court. This is the NFL.

And one of their own teams and franchises is currently being sued by the city that they represent. Washington deserves better than this. If Daniel Snyder could sell the team tomorrow, just drop it off to Jeff Bezos. Give him the keys and let's keep it moving.

It's not the easiest thing to do, but the process I wish it was. This is going to be a cliff note. On Daniel Snyder's way out the door.

This is going to be a speck. As he exits. He's going to sell the team. He'll make his money. He'll disappear. The fans in Maryland and Virginia and D.C. will hate his guts. And this will be nothing but a mention. But I'll tell you again, it would be nice if we had other cities across the country that were able to sue their local teams because they shoveled fans a lot of crap.

Washington is just the first example here. There's always something. It's the J.R. Sportbree show here with you on CBS Sports Radio 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. When we come back, I want to tell you about some cities that should sue their local sports team.

Are the Indianapolis Colts going to be on this list? I'll tell you on the other side. It's the J.R. Sportbree show on CBS Sports Radio. It's the J.R. Sportbree show here with you on CBS Sports Radio.

For the first time that I can ever, ever remember. We have a city. We have a district. We have a government suing a team for being trash.

Of course it's the Washington commanders. The attorney general is like, listen. Y'all are being complete jerks. And y'all are doing this under the guise of being a decent organization and the fans are the ones who have to pay for it?

Basically, the attorney general in D.C. said the Washington commanders are a terrible organization that treat people horrible in the workplace. And that they are trying to present themselves as something that they are not to make money off of the fans. That's true. It's true.

Sexual assault cases and investigations and basically saying that they're a bunch of frauds. Which is true. I don't know if you can get money off of it. But this is one hell of a way to go out if you are Daniel Snyder. He should just leave tomorrow. Leave next week. Hand the team over to, I don't know, a trust. I don't know how this stuff legally works. But he should just exit stage left.

Disappear for good. 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. We got Thursday Night Football going on right now.

And it's ugly. For now, the Panthers lead the Falcons 19-9. About two minutes away from the start of the fourth quarter. Let's go to Flushing, Queens.

Flushing, New York and talk to Manny. You're on the JR Support Brief Show. What's up JR? How you doing my brother? I'm good.

Go ahead. Good, man. Listen, man. I'm not surprised about this Washington news. Any time, every week, there's another news that it involves with the team and that dumbass owner, Snyder.

I mean, this is a joke. I've been saying this for years. Daniel Snyder is bad for business, not just for Washington, the W, Maryland, the WMB.

But I think it's bad for the NFL. More allegations, sexual assault, harassment. I mean, the nickname. I mean, you name it now.

This recent news. I mean, this team cannot catch a break as long as Snyder is still in the mix. Yeah, he's going to be out of the mix sooner than later. And thank you, Manny, for calling from Flushing. I think at this point, the Attorney General is just trying to hit the fast-forward button.

And he's trying to look good while he does it. This current attorney general, he's at the end of his term. He believes that the next AG who's going to be sworn in at the top of the year is going to continue this case.

Same political party. We can talk about it being politics. It's not a bad way to go out to say, oh, yeah, I was the one who decided to sue the Washington commanders and the NFL.

It's like a lot of grandstanding. He may not even think that he'll he'll win a case. And you're going to sue them for what?

It's a civil case. How much? How much money you suing the Washington commanders for? What you want? You want to bill? What do you want? A hundred million?

What do you want? I don't think this is going to go anywhere, but it certainly makes a statement. And I think it may be also emboldens some of these other AGs across the country. I mean, does the attorney general for the state of California care about the Kings? I don't know, but if they could, I'd sue Vivek Ranadive, what are you doing? You think about some other teams that are just mismanaged terribly.

I can look at the Jacksonville Jaguars. Was the AG down in Florida? Can can we sue? Can we sue them and Sean Khan? And I think I mentioned this one already.

The New York Knicks. Dolan. Oh, my God.

Sue him tomorrow. Please. I think the entire state of New York would be on board with that one. Everybody. And I think you can add another team to the mix. And we've talked about this just a lot over the past few days. It's the Indianapolis Colts.

Can the state of Indiana sue them? Jim Irsay, every day, he has a new reason as to why selecting Jeff Saturday as his head coach is a is a good idea. I don't I don't know what planet he lives on. But he's starting to. Well, not starting. He continues to explain himself. He basically said that there's now a a learning curve with Jeff Saturday as interim head coach.

Listen to Jim Irsay. Yes, there's a maturation curve. Shula was 32 years old.

He had three nondescript years with the Detroit Lions before he took over the reins in 1963. No, the game is not different. We don't build rockets to go to Mars. We're not nuclear scientists. That is none of our jobs here.

It's a very simple jobs that we do here. Oh, Jim Irsay went from making sausage. I don't know how to make sausage. And now Jim Irsay is talking about we're not building rockets. I love his analogies.

They're absolutely amazing. I don't know how sausage is made, but I know how to run a football team. We're not building rockets. And so on the scale of making sausage or sending a man to the moon, running an NFL franchise runs somewhere right in the middle. And I've got to appreciate Jim Irsay for saying as much. He also said that Jeff Saturday, he's experienced enough to be the head coach, even though he has no experience. Couldn't be more thrilled about having him here. And yes, he is fully experienced enough. Yes, he is fully capable. He's extremely smart.

He's extremely competitive. He understands the game. OK, he understands the game. I'm sure he does.

He played center in the NFL at a high level. I'm sure he understands the game. That doesn't make him or mean he's equipped to lead a squad to be the man.

That doesn't mean that. And so at this point. There's a football game coming up.

They are going to take on those. Raiders and the Raiders, man, they got their own problems. But the fact is, man, Jeff Saturday is sick of hearing about this. People talking about why did he take the job and you don't have experience. And Jeff Saturday, he basically said, I am here because I care. I love this organization. Because I care. Right. I told the guys this morning, I care about the players, care about their families. I sat in their seat, man. This sucks.

Right. I like Frank. I've talked to Frank.

We've texted. I love Frank, man. I was working with Frank.

Right. So I'm working with him every week, talking to him. I consider Frank a friend and I love him. I think he's a heck of a football coach.

I got no control over how that. So I understand from their perspective, I've sat in that seat. They love Frank, man. That's their coach. I mean, they played for this dude.

So I don't minimize that at all. I care about the staff and their families. These guys work hard. They sacrifice for their families. They sacrifice time, energy and effort. Okay.

Uh-huh. When a ship is sinking, like the Indianapolis Colts, and you just give them a new captain midway while the ship is sinking, what difference does it make? The ship is still going down. You got somebody else steering the boat to where?

Nowhere to the bottom of the ocean. If I got to imagine a boat that's sinking and you got human beings on it, it's now every man and woman and child for themselves. People are climbing all over each other. Somebody wants to survive. And it doesn't matter what's going on next to you. Teamwork goes out the window. I'm not thinking about you. I'm thinking about me.

Survival of the fittest. Jeff Saturday also said that this Colts organization, that it matters to him. Take a listen to what Jeff Saturday had to say. These are my people, bro. Like my adult life was forged here. Like these people matter to me. This organization matters to me. Right. The people in the community matter to me.

I mean, everybody thinks this is like flipping. This is this is not like I care, whatever I can do. And when he said, hey, can you help me? Absolutely. I help.

OK, sure. We know that that's your friend. That's why you have the job, because it's your friend.

It's your buddy. And they're going to make no difference, though. I don't think it will.

I think the odds are slim that it's going to make a difference. There's no turnaround for the Indianapolis Colts this year. They got an influx of talent. Are they holding a special NFL draft for the Indianapolis Colts to turn things around?

The answer is no. They've been trash all year with Frank Reich. What is Jeff Saturday going to do?

Is he going to play center? Is he going to find Peyton Manning and put him in the time machine? That's the only way that this Colts team is going to turn things around enough for it to matter. At the same time, I mean. They are playing the Raiders next.

So there always is just a little bit of hope. And speaking of the Raiders, this is quite ironic. Josh McDaniels, his team is is typically, well, it is a dumpster fire right now. How the Raiders only have two wins. I will blame on Josh McDaniels because they give away tons of leads. Josh McDaniels talked about the Colts and Josh McDaniels. He actually had some compliments for him.

Take a listen to this. This is a team second in the division now. Been in a ton of close games. You know, had one tie and a bunch that were right there at the end where they could have won or lost them.

So I'm excited to obviously be back home after the trip down south, you know, and get back home and really get ready for this one. OK. That was nice of Josh McDaniels to say. Well, what do you think about the new the new head coach? What do you think about Jeff Saturday? What do you think about the man who is one of the best centers in the NFL over, I'd say, the past 20 years? This is what Josh McDaniels had to say about him. I do know Jeff in terms of the person. And I think this guy was a great, great football player. And I think he he knows the game really, really well. I would assume again, I'm not in their building, so I don't really know. But I would assume that they're going to let the coaches that have been there to coach, you know, and the scheme isn't going to dramatically change on offense, defense or in the kicking game.

And we talked this morning. They're going to be ready to go because Jeff will have them ready to go. You know, he's a football player at heart as a football person at heart. And he knows what goes into winning and losing.

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. He's a football player and he's a football person. But damn it, I don't know what he is as a coach because I suck as a coach myself. Good job, Josh McDaniels.

Good job. It's the JR Sport Reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio. 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. The Indianapolis Colts and Jim Irsay. Not the only guys or team or organization that has just continued to be in the news over the past several days. Kyrie Irving is still in the news. And we've got even more details about his relationship or the end of his relationship with Nike. And it didn't come from a press release. It came from one of Nike's founders. It's the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio.

We'll talk about that on the other side. The phone lines are open as well. It's the JR Sport Reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio. 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. Right before we went to break, we talked about just some of these dysfunctional teams in the world of sports. Specifically the NFL right now. Oh my God. I did not just see that happen. Oh my God.

Oh my God. Marcus Mariota has to find the bench. The Carolina Panthers are...

Excuse me. The Panthers are beating the Falcons 22-9. There's about 8 minutes left in the game. Marcus Mariota was in the process of being sacked. In the process of being sacked, he appeared to be frustrated.

And now they'll determine this. Oh my goodness. Oh my God. Oh man.

This is terrible. So he's frustrated. It's raining. He seems to throw the ball. He's on his ass. I don't know.

He seems to throw the ball in frustration while he's on the ground. Okay. Doesn't count. Oh, fourth. Good. It doesn't count. Good. What a disaster that was.

Oh my God. Bottom line is he threw the ball and it was intercepted. And if it would have counted, it would have been equal to the butt fumble of Mark Sanchez. But this is still disastrous. They are within reason. People ask me all the time why Marcus Mariota is still the quarterback for the Falcons.

And the answer always has been is because they're doing quote unquote okay. They're coasting right now. They're fine. Well, they're about the fall of 4 and 6 and they're going to be fans who want to put Ritter out there. Oh, I already know what this is going to sound like in a few hours unless there's some type of massive comeback. People are going to be ready to send Marcus Mariota out to pasture.

What an unfortunate situation. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. It's 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. Marcus here from California. You on the JR support brief show.

JR, what's going on? So you're Mayfield, right? It's fallen from stardom last two years. But there's not a quarterback who's fallen from stardom. But if you take a look at the Green Bay Packers record. They're about to go on a three game losing streak. They're losing to the Cowboys. The Titans are going to be the Eagles. They also play the Rams, the Dolphins, the Vikings. It's the Vikings game. I feel interesting because they want revenge and they got destroyed in that game. But I think the Packers are done. I don't see them even being relevant unless they just go on this three game win streak, which the Titans, the Eagles and the Cowboys. You could all sit here and say all of us, but that's three loseable games the way that the Packers have played, even though their defense has really kept them in games. They lost by two points to the commanders. That Buffalo Bill game two weeks ago was very close in the fourth quarter. So 15 points against the Lions. So their defense keeps them in a couple games. But I just don't see offense really moving the chains at all. Yeah.

And thank you, Mark, for calling from California. Yeah, we see that they suck, man. They stink. It was Aaron Rodgers has some some secret weapon wide receivers that we don't know about.

They look cooked to me. I don't need to look at three games. I can look at every game that they've played so far this year. Green Bay Packers on a one, two, three, four. They're on a five game losing streak.

They're going to turn things around. Aaron Rodgers, he runs around and he talks like he's not concerned or he's not worried. And and what is he going to say when they are officially eliminated? Is he going to pack it in? Is he going to ask to stay home? Is he going to try to work remotely?

What what what is he going to try to do? It's like Aaron Rodgers has he got more issues with his teammates than he does himself. He's been throwing the wide receivers under the bus all year long.

Meanwhile, he wasn't even there for for every chance and opportunity and OTAs. What you whining about, man? He needs to take some of that 50 million dollars and spread it out. Give it to some of them young guys. Make it an incentive based situation. That you want to wreck them at every chance and opportunity.

I think it's good that they stink. I hope he feels the pain, at least on the football side. And then he can go into the off season and drink some of that magic potion that he loves so much. Well, ayahuasca. Aaron Rodgers, he's a he's a trippy dude, man. He's just real trippy. Speaking of trippy. We know Kyrie Irving is trippy. Has all of these boxes that he has to check to get back to the NBA, knowing that he's serving at minimum a five game suspension.

Sensitivity training in meetings. Adam Silver said what I think most people know and believe that he's probably not anti-Semitic. He's probably just stupid and stubborn. LeBron James has decided to chime in now. And LeBron has his own issues. LeBron says.

I told you guys I don't believe in sharing hurtful information and I'll continue to be that way. But Kyrie apologized and he should be able to play. That's what I think.

It's that simple. Help him learn. But he should be playing. What he's asked to do to get back on the floor, I think, is excessive, in my opinion. He's not the person that's being portrayed of him.

Anyways, back to my rehab session, which LeBron James is dealing with a groin issue. Who's who or what is is Kyrie Irving being portrayed as? To me, he's being portrayed as as ignorant, and I think he did it. If I have to think about how he's being portrayed, I don't I don't think it's as an anti-Semite.

I think it's just as someone who is just just always digging in and creating problems and issues. It was even a couple of days ago, a week ago, to be exact, that Nike said. We don't want nothing to do with this guy anymore. That we're we're suspending our relationship.

Well, to me, that just sounds like the relationship is cooked. It's a wrap. And so Phil Knight, one of the founders of Nike.

This man sat down on the squawk box. And he basically said, yeah, it's not just the suspension, it's probably curtains, period. That's what he had to say. Kyrie stepped over the line.

It's kind of that simple. And so he made some statements that we just can't abide by. And that's where we ended the relationship. And yeah, I was fine with that. I was fine with that.

Yeah. What do you think, Nike? Nike's going to throw somebody else's name on a shoe and keep it moving.

Where's John Moran at? Give John Moran the shoe. And I must tell you, this is the same Kyrie Irving who a few years ago, actually last year, he was he was criticizing his own shoe. It's the same Kyrie Irving who when one of his shoes was leaked. He came out and he said the shoe was trash.

He said he didn't approve. I have nothing to do with the design or the marketing of the Kyrie 8. Nike plans to release it without my OK, regardless of what I say. I apologize to all my sneakerheads and supporters of my brand.

This is this is the guy. So you don't think Nike was was ready to say, hey, goodbye, see you later? I'm not playing basketball. My days are over. Not wearing Kyrie Irving's. I'm not I'm not playing ball. The shoes are very popular.

Let me tell you something. Kyrie Irving, he can come and go. Nike isn't going anywhere. It's all relationship suspended.

More than likely relationship over. And it's still to be seen whether or not Kyrie Irving is going to return to play in basketball. Adam Silver says, I don't think he's an anti-Semite. LeBron James and even Jalen Brown say that his punishment right now is excessive and that he should be able to play. This man has dug himself his own hole.

Me personally, I don't I don't feel sorry for Kyrie Irving. Because he did it. He opened up his mouth about something that he wasn't fully familiar with. And then he had the backtrack.

This is not the first time this just unfortunately happens to be the biggest and largest incident. You don't think there will be more if he sticks around, if he's on the team, you don't think there'll be more? The players are standing up for him. But is Kyrie Irving smart enough to stand up for himself?

Does it seem like it always digging himself a hole? It's the JR Sport Reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio. Speaking of digging holes, Los Angeles Lakers, they are in a hole. And one of the guys I just mentioned, LeBron James, he's busted up and hurt again. We'll talk about it on the other side here on CBS Sports Radio.
