Anthony Edwards apologizes for homophobic comments

The NBA is set to sanction Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards for homophobic comments he made in a video posted on social media. The player took the lead in apologizing on Sunday.

In the video we see the number 1 of the 2020 draft argue with a group of men using openly homophobic terms. In a message posted on twitter, Edwards (21) apologized flatly: “What I said was immature, hurtful and disrespectful and I am incredibly sorry. This is unacceptable […], there is no excuse, I was raised better than that! »

In the past, the NBA has already sanctioned players for homophobic remarks, including Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant ($50,000 fine in 2021) or Rajon Rondo (one game suspension in 2015).
