“It’s a Great Day” On Thursday night’s TNF in The Shop, James stated, “Congratulations to the President, kudos to Kamala Harris.”
Brittney Griner has returned to American soil, and the biggest names in the NBA are jubilant.
LeBron James expressed his excitement about the news that Griner would return home after nearly ten months in Russian detention on TNF in The Shop on Thursday night. “I believe having BG back in the sports world, just having her family back, I know her wife misses her and her family misses her, and her club misses her here in Phoenix, is important for us as Americans,” said the speaker.
“To have her join the basketball brother and sisterhood, it’s a tremendous day for us and what we do,” the Los Angeles Laker stated. He remarked about salutations to the President, Kamala Harris, and all those who contributed.
James continued, “There’s a lot of individuals that are wrongfully jailed right now,” alluding to Paul Whelan, an American prisoner whom Russia had refused to exchange for Griner. “We’re hoping to find them all. Before the SI Awards on Thursday night, Stephen Curry also expressed his opinions.
He told Sports Illustrated, “Shoutout to President Biden, his administration, and all the athletes, activists, and people who utilised their position to speak on her behalf.
The Golden State Warriors player stated, “This is excellent news that Brittney is home, and I’m glad to see her come back with her family.”
Curry continued to express his concerns later that Thursday night as Griner was seen departing Russia on camera. Thank you to everyone who utilised their influence to make this possible and keep BG in the public eye. Especially @potus and your administration and crew,” he tweeted. The celebrity continued this result is also necessary for more Americans and their families.
Dwyane Wade, a former member of the Miami Heat, also supported Griner by wearing a shirt with her image on it to the Rams vs Raiders football game on Thursday.
