Nets superstar Kyrie Irving is set to miss the upcoming 2021-22 NBA season after the Nets declared that Irving would not be allowed to participate in any team activities until he becomes fully eligible in accordance with local COVID-19 policies. Irving initially was to be ruled out of all games in the New York market, as unvaccinated Knicks and Nets players are not allowed to play home games – but the Nets sent a message on Tuesday, announcing that Irving will be barred from team activities until he meets the requirements to become a full participant. .
“I really don’t understand Kyrie Irving at all. Is he for real? Is he joking? — I don’t really know what’s driving the guy. I do think they have to hold firm with what the Nets are doing, that’s a law for a reason, he’s not above the law. What this requirement says is something basically fundamental and it’s fundamental to what the NBA believes. What it basically says is, ‘none of us are more important than all of us.’ And if you think you’re more important than all of us, if you disagree with that, if you’re Kyrie Irving and you think what you want is more important than everybody else, than the collective, then don’t play ball.”
