Leading the chorus of anti-vaxxer NBA players is Kyrie Irving. A controversial player, to say the least, Irving forced himself off the Cleveland Cavaliers’ roster, after playing in the NBA Finals. He has since become a journeyman.
Kyrie Irving played with the Boston Celtics, for two seasons, before leaving for the Brooklyn Nets. With Kevin Durant also joining, the plan was for a superteam. Last year, they lost in the playoffs to the Milwaukee Bucks.
With a full season under them, the Brooklyn Nets are expected to contend for the championship. But, Kyrie Irving refusing to get vaccinated is complicating things. Due to New York City’s COVID-19 vaccine law, he will not play in Nets’ home games.
