Kessler Apologizes For Comments
NBA union attorney Jeffrey Kessler has apologized for saying that owners are treating players “like plantation workers,” adding that he doesn’t want to become a distraction during the tense negotiations.
“The comments that I made in The Washington Post took place in an interview late at night Monday after a very long day,” Kessler said in a statement. “Looking back, the words that I used were inappropriate; I did not intend to offend. I was merely passionately advocating for the players.”
