While he is not allowed to play home games for the Brooklyn Nets for lack of vaccination, Kyrie Irving has been sidelined by his officials and will not be fielded until he is able to play all of the games. his team.
Brooklyn Nets leaders faced a dilemma and they made a decision. Difficulty by Kyrie Irving’s opposition to vaccination against the coronavirus, the New York-based franchise has decided to forgo the services of its leader until further notice. Indeed, in order to access sports grounds, New York State requires everyone to inject at least one dose of vaccine. A health rule that does not allow the Brooklyn Nets to rely on Kyrie Irving for games played at Barclays Center but which leaves the door open for games far from “Big Apple”. An opportunity that the leaders of the Nets have left aside. “Given the development of the situation and after much deliberation, we have decided that Kyrie Irving will not be able to train or play with the team until he is eligible to participate in the entire season. New York franchise general manager Sean Marks confirmed in a statement.
While the entire workforce of the Nets is vaccinated, the leaders ensure that they respect the choice of Kyrie Irving but do not want the former leader of Cleveland and Boston to be only partially present. “Kyrie made a personal choice, and we respect her freedom of opinion, added Sean Marks. For now, his choice prevents him from being a permanent member of our team, and we will not allow any player to play under our colors part-time. In other words, the Nets do not want to be dependent on state health rules concerning the group making the trips during the season. An absence that will also translate economically for Kyrie Irving, who should lose no less than $ 380,000, or a little less than 330,000 euros, per game missed. The Nets’ position could be emulated since 5% of players playing in the NBA have not had a vaccination against the coronavirus.
