Kyrie Irving Benched By Brooklyn Nets Over Anti-Vaccine Stance


According to the NY Post, the point guard has been removed from the team’s roster until he gets the shot. Brooklyn general manager Sean Marks said in a statement, “Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant.” New York City has a mandate that people cannot enter into an establishment unless they are vaccinated. The All-Star player’s refusal to abide by the city’s law means he will not be able to play in the Barclay Center or Madison Square Garden. While other cities would allow him to hoop in their arenas, the Nets’ management wants him all-in, playing every game or none at all. Kyrie has not publicly made a statement but posted, “I am protected by God and so are my people. We stand together.
