This might be the most incredible takes we have ever seen.
The Brooklyn Nets are now playing hardball with Kyrie Irving in response to his decision not to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
On Tuesday, Nets General Manager Sean Marks announced Kyrie would remain ineligible to play or practice with the team until he complies with New York City vaccination rules.
“Given the evolving nature of the situation and after through deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant.
Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose.
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.
Our championship goals for the season have not changed, and to achieve these goals each member of our organization must pull in the same direction. We are excited for the start of the season and look forward to a successful campaign that will make the borough of Brooklyn proud.”
The vaccine mandate states that anyone entering an indoor gym — including Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden must have had at least one COVID-19 shot.
Republican Candidate for Florida’s 24th Congressional District Lavern Spicer went insanely viral this week when she took to Twitter and voiced her concern with the NBA allowing Magic Johnson to play with HIV back in the day, but won’t allow Kyrie Irving to play without getting the vaccine.
“They let Magic Johnson play basketball with FULL-BLOWN HIV but won’t let Kyrie Irving play because he won’t get a COVID shot.”
Even Clay Travis brought up this same point.
Her biggest mistake here is that the NBA is not stopping him from playing, it’s the Nets owner and the mandate in place for the are stopping him from playing at home games.
Also, HIV cannot be transmitted through the air. We should know this by now.
If the Nets owner allowed Irving to play, he would miss 43 regular-season games — 41 at Barclays Center, plus two at MSG. Not to mention, he would not be able to play in any home playoff games.
