I would have thought there might have been a way to reconcile if it was only him not playing, but saying outright he won't get an extension is pretty much cutting him off. I'm unsure the Nets really thought this through. This might be the beginning of the end of this version of the Nets. Over before it really even began.


It's true.

https://sports.yahoo.com/nets-won-t-offer-contract-212705411.html

Couple this report with the Nets public statement when it was announced that he won't play at all and it‘s plain to see that management is done with Kyrie.
I'M BANNED??? Thanks, adding to the lawsuit...

Not sure how they suspect to keep Durant happy when he only wanted to go to BK because Kyrie helped direct him there. So now you don’t want to sign Kyrie and Harden could look for a new situation if you do.

The Ali comparison ends with Ali being against killing people and Kyrie being for killing people.

Like the one they think has a million conspiracies just no commented and didn’t like the pressure. Beal and Issac went full on rant and hate but they are just getting the get vaccinated spam tweets



Beal is legit on the court hooping without without the vaccine and it’s nuts


Its selective outrage. people should keep the same energy they do with kyrie, but with beal.

However kyrie also has the unique position of playing in a city, new york city no less with 2 superstars, with a mandate. If dc had a mandate im sure the media would be all over beal too to a lesser extent



So it shows that this story is more about the money than actually being vaccinated itself. Letting a player run around on the court without it and the media focus is on the guy that’s not even playing :nonono:

The last 2 pages are hilarious.

Freedums and Facebook research is the most hilarious/stupid thing to come out of this. Before Americans (trumpers) politicised this nobody cared about whole subject but took their vaccines like normal people. Not to mentioning whole thing of still claiming ''i need to do my own research''. How long it takes? We have lived in pandemic almost 2 years. And vaccine be available almost a year in the western countries. And all this American garbage of ''its a big personal decision''.. no it's not. It's not a big decision. Just get it and be safe like any other vaccine before this in the last 50 or so years..


Ha. Conservatives politicized this? That's rich. They've been consistent on this from the beginning, which was "get poked if you want, and don't get it if you don't want to". Your president and VP said they wouldn't take the vaccine under any circumstance when Trump was pres. What changed? They know they can get away with being grifters because they know their apologists have short memories. You know the country is doomed for failure when it's entitled and spoiled citizens mock freedom.


Are you living in alternative reality?

First it was Covid was a democratic hoax overblown by the media.

Then it was Trump saying it was only a few cases and would go down to zero.

Then it was saying that Covid would be gone by Easter.

Then it was saying that Covid deaths were faked and they were counting fake deaths.

Then it was masks are taking away out liberties and don't work.

Then it was saying lockdowns are a form of tyranny.

Then it was saying vaccines are dangerous and not FDA approved.

Now again it's about personal freedom even though it is FDA approved.

You guys change the goal posts every **** time and it's sad.

He's also lying here blatantly I might add. They said they would take it if the science said to, they wouldn't if it was Trump telling them to take it. Pretty simple but of course they have to misdirect and lie.

I'm sure if the Nets management knows it won't have any impact on keeping Durant and Harden then they are fine with just cutting ties at this point.

If the Nets implode because of Kyrie, I will eat crow about the Harden deal. I hated the deal, but Kyrie can make them the most value picks in the league. Very interested in how this situation pans out

I guess he could force a trade if he gets frustrated but KD signed an extension so he’s pretty much locked in until he’s close to retirement

So what exactly is this latest Shams report he''s only giving up 16 million in salary-

Is this stuff on BBR not accurate?

Signed 4-yr $136.49M contract Saturday, July 6, 2019.
2022-23 is player option.


That means his salary this year is:
2021-22 $34,916,200

and next year he has a PLAYER Option for-
2022-23 $36,503,300


Has he already been paid 1/2 his salary this year?

Isn't a player option HIS choice, not theirs?


I think he's gonna get the shot the day the season starts. like KD is gonna drag him down to a clinic and do it himself if necessary.

But I think he's enjoying all this attention right now and taking this to the limit.
It does allow him to make his point.

I wonder what his family thinks, like does he have any older relatives that are avoiding him.
He has to know players like KAT have lost family to this thing. I feel like KATS mom died before there was a vax (?)
Maybe she didn't have to die.....

Please just go get the shot dude - we fans want an epic Nets v Lakers FINALS!!!

Healthy Durant and healthy Harden, without any sort of return for Kyrie, is still an eastern conference finals team this year easily.
