One of the key players from the Cleveland Cavaliers championship games back in 2016 is looking to see no more playing time thanks to a New York City vaccine mandate.
Kyrie Irving, who is currently part of the Brooklyn Nets, “won’t play or practice” until he gets the COVID-19 vaccine shot.
That means he is to not be with the team at all as of right now.
According to CNN, with “a statement from Brooklyn Nets General Manager Sean Marks,” it was Irving’s choice not to get vaccinated.
From WJW Fox 8 News Cleveland:
“Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose,” Marks said in a statement to CNN.
Head coach Steven Nash had previously said the team would be with Irving for home games, but Marks said the Nets won’t allow a member of the team to be part-time.
“Currently, the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability. It is imperative that we continue to build chemistry as a team and remain true to our long-established values of togetherness and sacrifice.”
No comment so far Irving himself.
It will all depend on whether the star player will change his mind or keep his stance on not getting the shot.

Kyrie Irving Feels It’s Time To Throw The N-Word “Out The Window,” Black Twitter Has Thoughts

Kyrie has every right to feel however he wants about the word. BUT this conversation about Kyrie Irving and the n-word should not turn into a conversation between non-black people about whether or not black people can or should say it.— Taylor Rooks (@TaylorRooks) April 11, 2021

1. I agree with Kyrie Irving 100%— 𝐄𝐱𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐞𝐫 𝐏𝐨𝐩𝐞 (@exavierpope) April 11, 2021
2. Black People are the only individuals fully entitled for a valid & inclusive reasonable debate over N-Word usage and Black openness of that debate towards those who are not Black is nonnegotiable and allowed by unilateral Black consent only https://t.co/bry7ogvCGC

Kyrie Irving is entitled to his opinion. Some Black people want to say it and others don’t. It is what it is. 🤷🏽♀️ I personally was never big on the n-word myself, but have found myself saying it more than I ever have these past couple years for whatever reason. 🤷🏽♀️— Isha Thorpe (@IshaThorpe) April 12, 2021
