The NBA fined Kyrie Irving on Friday 50,000 dollars (41,351 euros) for violation of the coronare rules.
The guard of the Brooklyn Nets was spotted on video at his sisters birthday party. He was in a great company and was not wearing a mouth mask. With the fine of his club, he has to pay 870,000 dollars (720,000 euros).
It doesnt stick to the $50,000. His club deducts 410,000 dollars (340,000 euros) from his salary for every game he missed during his mandatory quarantine. If Irving can take one more negative corontest, he can rejoin his team on Saturday and he missed two games. In total, the party will have cost him 870,000 dollars (720,000 euros). A financial disaster isnt that for Irving. The 28-year-old American has an annual salary of more than 34 million dollars (27 million euros).
The Brooklyn Nets, who joined James Harden (from Houston), started the season as one of the title candidates. After six victories and as many defeats, the team is only sixth in the Eastern Conference.
