Kyrie Irving Has No Plans To Get Vaccinated 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Oct 14, 2021 2:41 pm

Kyrie Irving has no plans to get vaccinated despite a mandate requiring him to do so in order to play in home games with the Brooklyn Nets.


"As of right now he's not [playing this season]," said Shams Charania on CNN. "I'm told Kyrie Irving has no plans to get vaccinated."


Charania outlined how there's only three routes available to Irving currently based on his position: sit the entire season, wait for the New York City mandate to be lifted, or be traded. City Hall officials have told Charania there is no plan to lift their mandate.


Irving does want to keep playing and has maintained that he's not anti-vaccine and is instead anti-mandate. Irving, however, didn't get the vaccine even before the mandate came into effect.


The NBA has approximately 20 players who are unvaccinated, but Irving is the only one who is impacted by the decision in terms of being barred from playing in certain games.

Probably rather “Just do it“.

Yeah, saying you're not anti-vax and still choose to not get vaccinated doesn't gel together.

Make it make sense aka you're antivaxer for not getting vaccinated. That's all that needs to be said.

We have to have compassion for those dealing with mental illness. I'm glad his teammates are giving him space.

I agree, compassion is required during this time more than ever. COVID has impacted many people financially, spiritually, mentally and socially. Glad Kyrie is able to remain sane during this period of history. It takes a strong mind to put his career, finances, and social life with teammates at risk to uphold his principles and not loose sight of them.

Some people people support the flat earth delusion for the laughs. Others, who truly believe the earth is flat, have serious problems.

I never liked Kyrie before, but now I applaud him for refusing to be forced to take medication that he doesn't need.
