Kyrie Irving has not backed down from Brooklyn's unequivocal move, nor does he intend to get vaccinated against Corona even after it was decided he would not be part of the team until he did.

If anything, the opposite is true.



A player close to the player told Athletic that "Kyrie believes he is fighting for something much more than basketball", and it is certain that the consequences of his decision on his career and the team that is considered the favorite to win the championship are secondary to the goal of immunization in New York and other countries. United States.



Athletic claims that Irving has updated some of his teammates on the decision, making it clear he does not intend to back down, hoping his move will lead to a renewed public debate on the vaccination obligation, and may even make New York State more flexible.

Irving's associates insist he does not see himself as opposed to vaccines and that he does not doubt science, but is angry that many people who do not get vaccinated in the states in the United States where the vaccine is mandatory, are losing their jobs. "Kyrie believes this is a war of the common people against a rich minority who want to control them. He wants to join the struggle and be the flag bearer, he wants to be the voice of the voiceless people," his associates say.



96 percent of NBA players have already been vaccinated in at least one dose, and players who expressed reservations until a few weeks ago agreed to do so, mainly for economic reasons, as the league announced that players who are not vaccinated and will be absent from games in immunized countries will not be paid. Games.



At the same time, for Kyrie the financial consideration is secondary: he has earned over $ 160 million provinces throughout his career and signed a huge sponsorship deal with Nike, which guarantees him high revenues in the coming years regardless of future developments.

Either way, it is highly doubtful whether Irving's "struggle" will yield any results.

New York State does not intend to make the laws flexible, and certainly does not intend to bend them specifically for Irving.



It was recently revealed that Irving will not be able to take part in the team's home games, due to New York City's requirement that closed halls be entered only for vaccinated people with the virus.

In recent weeks, the possibility has been raised that Irving will be with the team only in away games, but now the team has decided to reject the offer and announced that the player must be vaccinated if he wants to be part again.



Under league rules, a player who is not available to his team because he has not been vaccinated to Corona will not be paid for those games.

At the moment it seems that in light of the fact that he will miss all the home games, he has lost his salary of $ 17 million.

It's not it yet.
