Nets Growing Impatient with Irving’s Continued Resistance to the Vaccine

Kyrie Irving is in the news again.

After initially showing signs of optimism, the Brooklyn Nets brass is growing uneasy over Kyrie Irving’s reluctance to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Team officials have been said to be confident that Irving would get vaccinated prior to the start of the season, but that confidence is waning with each passing day. Given the strict vaccine regulations in Brooklyn, Kyrie Irving will not be able to participate in team practices or home games if he remains unvaccinated, limiting him to essentially a part-time role with the team.

The Nets have been said to be very supportive of Irving throughout the process, but their patience has most definitely been tested.

“I’m envisioning Kyrie being a part of our team,” said Nets superstar Kevin Durant earlier in the week. “Maybe I’m just naïve, but that’s just how I feel. But everybody here has that confidence in themselves and our group, that if we keep doing it we can do something special.”

The Nets have one of the league’s most talented roster heading into the 2021-22 season whether they play with or without Irving, and while they may consider moving Irving to accommodate his resistance to the vaccine, Irving’s questionable availability on a game-to-game basis over the past few years has greatly hurt his value. Add in this latest bit of drama and Irving is starting to push himself out of favor with just about every interested party.

The NBA regular season is set to kick off in a few short weeks, meaning it is highly unlikely that Irving will be able to play in the team’s home opener even if he is to get vaccinated sooner rather than later.
