Kyrie Irving’s Current Stance On The Vaccine Has Been Revealed

Now that KD is out for a bit, will Kyrie play ball with vaccine?

Brooklyn will be without Kevin Durant for four to six weeks, and his absence was certainly felt throughout yesterday’s game.

This has led to a discussion surrounding Kyrie and whether or not he will get vaccinated so that he can play games at home.

Kyrie made it clear to ESPN last night that his intentions have not changed. He will not get vaccinated and injuries to the Nets roster will not make him change his mind.

“It’s not going to be swayed just because of one thing in this NBA life,” Irving said. “That somehow it’s brought to my attention as being more important than what’s going on in the real world. It’s just not happening for me. Again, I respect everyone else’s decision, I’m not going to ever try to convince anyone of anything or any of that, I’m just standing rooted in what I believe in. And though we’re dealing with this right now with Kev, I just know that I’m protected by the organization, I’m protected by my teammates, I’m protected by all the doctors I’ve talked to. And I just stand rooted.”

Not exactly what Nets fans will want to hear, but at least you have to respect Kyrie for staying consistent on his vaccine stance.

Kyrie is all about sticking to his guns, which can only mean that he still believes the Earth is Flat too.
