Kyrie Irving's Position Not Anti-Vaccine, Wants To Challenge A Perceived Control Of Society 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Oct 12, 2021 10:58 pm

Kyrie Irving is not anti-vaccine and that his stance is that he is upset that people are losing their jobs due to vaccine mandates, multiple sources with direct knowledge of Irving's decision have told Shams Charania of The Athletic


"It’s a stance that Irving has explained to close teammates," writes Charania. "To him, this is about a grander fight than the one on the court and Irving is challenging a perceived control of society and people’s livelihoodaccording to sources with knowledge of Irving’s mindset. It is a decision that he believes he is capable to make given his current life dynamics."


Irving is currently ineligible to play for the Brooklyn Nets in home games and the team has decided that they'd prefer him not to play in any games until he's ready to play in all of them


“Kyrie wants to be a voice for the voiceless,” one source said.


Irving is slated to miss out on $16 million-plus in salary this season and also forgo a $186 million extension. 


The rules in New York City are indefinite and there is no expectation of them being reversed, which would allow him to play.

Zzzzzzzzz. The entire Republican Party is the voice for anti-science, anti-public health rubbish. So he's hardly doing anything special.

Calling out Joe Biden for Oppression? Or is Trump still the guy?

It's always hard to tell with Kyrie whether his clarification on a pervious controversy makes things less stupid or more. It never makes it not stupid though.

I don't know if a more accurate description could be written.

It’s kind of hard to be a “voice” for anyone when all you say is nonsense.

I’m pretty sure Kyrie Irving’s the last person I’d ever take life advice from. Seriously if I’m Durant and Harden I’d be seriously pissed. His quote of not being anti vax but he wants to be the voice of the voiceless exposes him completely. He could care less about helping his team, and that should speak volumes. The Nets unfortunately can’t trade him, so they need to find a way to void that contract and waive this bozo.
You look confused...let me fill you in.

Yeah when you're being contrary to stuff like a round earth and vaccines, you're just a contrarian against rational thinking.

“Kyrie wants to be a voice for the voiceless,” one source said.

You don't become the voice for the voiceless by taking some wishy washy stance, Irving. You just stabbed us in the back by shilling out for the vax.

This is why I never trusted this clown. 100% controlled opposition on some Project Veritas shiz. He will be back at some point in the season. Dude is a turd. :crazy:
