Kiri Irving’s ineffective status is one of the highlights of the NBA pre-season.
The consequences and impact of his decision, not just in his career, were an entertaining pre-season in the Net’s 2021-22 season.
After walking a tightrope in all media interactions since the start of training camp on their position on the subject, Net finally took a position and announced that Irving would not play or practice with the team until he was fully qualified to do so.
Meanwhile, Irving is silent on Media Day, except for a brief interview with reporters about Zoom. On Wednesday night, the All-Star Point Guard broke that silence by going live on Instagram.
“This is my life and what I like to do,” Irving said, referring to his decision not to take the covid-1 vaccine.
“The financial consequences, I know I don’t want to do that,” Irving said. “But the reality is that to be in New York City, to be on a team, I have to be vaccinated. That’s the choice.
Kyrie Irving addresses her position on not getting vaccinated on IG Live: “It’s about choosing what works best for you. Do you think I really want to lose money? Do you think I really want to give up my dream after the championship? Do you think I really want to quit my job? pic.twitter.com/cYHCWGbnCo

It was because of the New York City Vaccine Order that Irving would not be allowed to play with the team at the Home Games at the Barclays Center and the Road Games at Madison Square Garden.
His position, which he believes provides a voice for the voiceless who have lost their jobs due to vaccine orders, has nothing to do with the net organization or his colleagues, he clarified.
“It’s my life,” Irving said. “I can do whatever I want with it, this is a body that I’ve got here. Grouping into something that’s bigger than just playing basketball.”
In addition, its location and its nature brought the report and discussion of the point guard to retire the game. However, on social media platforms, he quickly put that discussion to rest.
“No one is snatching this voice,” Irving said.
“See if they run it on their TV channel and if they run this truth somewhere before they start talking about me and what I’m doing with my life. And no, I’m not retiring. And no, I’m not going and leaving It’s not going to be like this game. There’s still a lot of work to be done. “
Since Media Day, Irving has only participated with the team at their training camp in San Diego and then an outdoor practice a week later. There is no practice and no play.
Her live session on Instagram, while it clears up some aspects of leisure and agenda, still leaves much to be desired. Is he going to play or will he be unavailable all season due to his uncommon condition?
