Magic Johnson Slams Kyrie Irving: ‘I Would Never Do That To My Teammates’

Kyrie Irving continues to get trashed by former NBA players.

Basketball legend Magic Johnson is going in on Kyrie Irving for refusing to get vaccinated.

“You have said to your teammates, ‘I’m gonna be there for you’. Well, you can’t be there if you don’t get vaccinated. You letting them down. And then that hurts our chances of winning a championship. I would never do that to my teammates. Never,” he said.

“I got my two shots and made sure I put it out on social media,” he added. “I wanted, especially my community to know, first of all, it’s safe. And the players, again, people listen to them, they follow them. That’s very important.”

Kyrie isn’t backing down on his vaccine stance.

“I’m standing with all those that believe what is right,” Irving said while speaking on Instagram Live earlier this month. “Everybody is entitled to do what they feel is what’s best for themselves. Seeing the way this is dividing our world up, it’s sad to see. People are losing jobs to mandates.”

Not sure anyone needs Kyrie to stand up for them. He’s a super rich athlete who has no issues, only ones he creates.

Nothing in common with the people who are losing their jobs.
