Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Those Kyrie Irving trade/retirement rumors have become a lot more believable since NYC announced the vax mandate. This is a headache, man. – 8:59 PM

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) – Kyrie Irving scored 13 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Nets to their first-ever NBA title in front of 9,347 raucous fans at the Rutgers Athl … – 8:58 PM

Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
These are unprecedented circumstances, but Irving’s inability to practice in Brooklyn — along with being unavailable for the Nets 41 home games –makes the idea of Irving as a part-time player feel unrealistic. – 8:58 PM

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
Drama and Kyrie. Always and forever. – 8:53 PM

Let’s just do the Ben Simmons for Kyrie Irving trade and end both of these storylines – 8:53 PM

We just saw BI at practice rocking Kyrie’s sneakers. He informed us he’s a sneaker free agent now and he’s looking forward to seeing what comes next.
BI was previously an Adidas athlete. – 2:50 PM

The Nets returned to practice in Brooklyn today without Kyrie Irving. Steve Nash also said there’s no consideration to moving practices outside New York to be able to practice with his starting point guard espn.com/nba/story/_/id…2:45 PM

Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Two weeks before playing in the NBA’s season-opening game, the Nets hold their first practice in Brooklyn without Kyrie Irving amid questions about his availability to play in New York because of the city’s vaccine mandate.

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Steve Nash said the Nets don’t plan to move practice out of their Brooklyn facility, to say…Long Island or New Jersey, in order to get Irving able to join them. “This is our home, this is where we’re going to practice.” – 2:05 PM

All Nets but Kyrie Irving practiced today in the Nets’ first practice in New York. Steve Nash said Nets aren’t worried about him not being here. – 1:23 PM

Kyrie not at practice today. Draw your own conclusions. pic.twitter.com/WitBTVc9nN1:23 PM

Steve Nash confirms that Kyrie Irving did not practice with the Nets today and wasn’t at the facility. – 1:23 PM

Ian Begley @IanBegley
Steve Nash says there is no change to Kyrie Irving’s status. He is not at practice in BKN today. NYC requires Knicks/Nets to be vaccinated to participate in games/practices within city limits. – 1:18 PM

Nets’ Kyrie Irving’s former teacher says he should ‘wise up’ and get vaccinated because he’s a ‘role model’ – nj.com nj.com/nets/2021/10/n…8:56 AM

Tzvi Twersky @TTwersky
I also have an extremely nuanced (and somewhat informed) take on the human that is Kyrie. I’m gonna save that for irl convo, though. – 1:01 AM

More on this storyline

Adrian Wojnarowski: There had been previous optimism Irving would get vaccinated and fulfill local mandates, but that hope is waning and Irving’s continued resistance to vaccination has Nets preparing for possibility they’ll be without him for home practices and games for foreseeable future. -via Twitter @wojespn / October 5, 2021

Ohm Youngmisuk: Steve Nash says Kyrie Irving is not with the Nets today at practice in Brooklyn. He says there “is no further update” on Irving’s status to practice or play in New York under the city’s COVID protocols. -via Twitter @NotoriousOHM / October 5, 2021

Shams Charania: Kyrie Irving did not attend Nets practice today, sources tell me and @Alex Schiffer. Irving is currently ineligible for home games and practices because of NYC’s vaccination requirement. -via Twitter @ShamsCharania / October 5, 2021
