Charles Berkeley was not far behind when it came to talking about Kiri Irving.
After the Brooklyn Nets ’127-104 season-opening loss to Milwaukee Buck on Tuesday night, Berkeley was unhappy with Irving’s absence from the team due to his decision not to vaccinate.

New York’s vaccination mandate does not allow Irving to play in the home game. And since the net doesn’t want him as a part-time player, they have decided he won’t even play in the road game.

On Tuesday night, Berkeley addressed the Irving story on “NBA at TNT.”
“First, you don’t get the vaccine for yourself. You get it for other people,” Berkeley said. “I’m vaccinated, and I can’t wait to get a booster. You don’t just get vaccinated for yourself … you get vaccinated for your family first, you get vaccinated for your teammates a second time.

“It bothers me about the whole thing. I think everyone should be vaccinated,” Berkeley continued. “I’m really proud of the Nets for putting their feet down and saying we’re not going to deal with this half, half off. The only thing that bothers me is that he’s still going to make $ 17 million at home.”
