Kyrie Irving Not Getting Vaccinated Is About Something Much Larger According to Report

Kyrie Irving isn’t a no vaccine guy?

According to a recent reports from NBA insider Shams Charania, the controversial Brooklyn Nets point guard isn’t anti-vaccine at all, in fact, he’s what you call anti vaccine mandate.

Per The Atheltic, Irving is upset over people losing their jobs in places where vaccines are mandated. A close source reportedly told The Athletic that Kyrie Irvingg wants to “be a voice” for people who have had their lives affected due to imposed vaccine regulations.

Via The Athletic:

“Multiple sources with direct knowledge of Irving’s decision have told The Athletic that Irving is not anti-vaccine and that his stance is that he is upset that people are losing their jobs due to vaccine mandates. It’s a stance that Irving has explained to close teammates. To him, this is about a grander fight than the one on the court and Irving is challenging a perceived control of society and people’s livelihood, according to sources with knowledge of Irving’s mindset. It is a decision that he believes he is capable to make given his current life dynamics. “Kyrie wants to be a voice for the voiceless,” one source said.”

Irving is currently not allowed to participate in any practices or games until he receives the vaccine.

And you know how Kyrie feels about vaccine mandates.

Unfortunately when lives are at stake, you need mandates in place to save lives. Get over yourself Kyrie.
