Brooklyn Nets star point guard Kyrie Irving is once again in the news for the wrong reasons. The All-Star, who is not vaccinated, will not play or practice with the Nets until he gets the COVID-19 vaccine.
Irving is one of the most polarizing players in the NBA. Ever since he requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017, the three-time All-NBA guard has said and done multiple questionable things, making him an “enigma.”
Kyrie Irving is “enigma of the century”
Here’s full quote of Kyrie aunt 3 weeks ago, as Ky sought “resolution” w/NBA. League said there WAS no deal; it must comply with law.
Nets found Kyrie a loophole w/city to practice 4 days ago, banned him today.

One of Irving’s teammates told Matt Sullivan of Rolling Stone that the one-time champion is the “enigma of the century.” The Duke product stands to lose millions of dollars if he doesn’t get the vaccine, and it sounds like he doesn’t care.
Nets general manager Sean Marks released a strong statement detailing why his starting point guard won’t practice or play until he gets the vaccine. New York City requires players to be vaccinated to play in the market. Irving could have played in road games, but Marks wasn’t comfortable with that.
“Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant,” Marks said. “Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose. Currently the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability. It is imperative that we continue to build chemistry as a team and remain true to our long-established values of togetherness and sacrifice. Our championship goals for the season have not changed, and to achieve these goals each member of our organization must pull in the same direction. We are excited for the start of the season and look forward to a successful campaign that will make the borough of Brooklyn proud.”
Irving will lose $380,000 per home game if he doesn’t get the vaccine. While that is certainly a situation hard to follow since it’s a lot of money to forfeit over a refusal to get a vaccine that is backed by science, it’s not the strangest thing the 2011-12 Rookie of the Year has done.
Kyrie Irving was reportedly angry after winning title in 2016
One of Irving’s teammates thinks he’s an enigma and this next story goes along with that. According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, Irving was angry after the Cavaliers won the 2016 Finals over the Golden State Warriors despite hitting the game-winning shot over Stephen Curry.
