NBA Apologizes to Israel, Regev

NBA Issues Apology to Israel for Poor Choice of Words on Website

The NBA was quick to apology and makeup for their wrong doings.

After Miri Regev, the Israeli sports minister sent in a letter to NBA commissioner Adam Silver calling Palestine “an imaginary state” and asking the league to remove the reference from its site, the NBA did exactly that. The term “Palestine-occupied territory” was very quickly removed from NBA.com on Friday.

“We do not produce the country listings for NBA.com, and as soon as we became aware of it, the site was updated,” said NBA president for social responsibility Kathy Behrens. “We apologize for this oversight and have corrected it.”

Regev did her part to thank Silver on Friday for removing the language from the website.

“Israel’s lands are not occupied; therefore, what was written was false and should have been deleted.” She added in her thank you message for Silver and the NBA.
