The NBA has apologized for its decision to suspend the NBA 2K game for a month after an uproar over a video showing players and coaches celebrating a shot clock violation.
The NBA and the NBA Players Association have reached a settlement in the case, according to ESPN.
“We want to reiterate our full commitment to this community and our fans,” NBA President and CEO Rob Pelinka said in a statement.
“This was never an easy decision, and we are fully committed to addressing the concerns and concerns raised by this community.”
The NBA 2k17 suspension was originally announced in October, and the team was forced to delay a new game after complaints from fans and players.
The suspension stemmed from a video that was posted on social media showing players celebrating a play in which they deliberately missed a free throw.
Players from around the league, including Michael Jordan, were reportedly upset about the video.
“I can’t even begin to explain what it’s like to watch these guys on the floor celebrating and celebrating in that way,” NBA player Jason Collins told ESPN.
The team has since released a statement saying the suspension will end immediately, and it will be a new season of the game.
The suspensions are the latest in a long line of controversies with the NBA, with the league having faced allegations of racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism.
“The NBA has been an unwavering advocate for equality, equality for all, and for inclusion,” Pelinka added in the statement.
