Protesters Jump Barricades; Chanting ‘Let Kyrie Play’

Brooklyn Nets fans have enough already and are demanding the team and officials to ‘let Kyrie play’ ahead of their Sunday afternoon game against the Charlotte Hornets.


A group of protesters jumped the barricades and started chanting ‘let Kyrie play’ prior to the team’s home opener Sunday.

Kyrie Irving is not allowed to play inside of the state of New York because he is not vaccinated. He said he would play in road games, but the team said they would rather play without him until he could play in all games.

The Nets have started the season 1-1 losing to Milwaukee 127-104, then beating the 76ers 114-109 on Friday night.

There’s no official word yet on Irving’s vaccination status, but many expect him to see the court this season, whether it is for the Nets or another franchise.
