While the Kyrie Irving saga continues in Brooklyn, fans are patiently waiting to see what will happen with the All-Star point guard. He was banned from team activities due to his refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
Even though the team and the player have stated they are working to find a solution, we're yet to know the resolution to this issue. Recently, Nets owner Joe Tsai revealed he had talked with Kyrie, and respected his decision, although it was hard to understand.
Kyrie has stated that he won't lose millions and the chance to compete for the championship, yet it's unclear how he plans to do this without taking the shot. Meanwhile, he keeps sharing cryptic posts on social media.
Just last week, Kyrie broke his silence and posted a cryptic message on Instagram. Nobody knew what he was talking about, although some people tried to find an explanation for his post.
Moreover, the 2016 NBA champion posted another picture on Instagram today. This time, he went with Morpheus from Matrix, firing up fans with his selection.
In case you don't remember or are too young to understand this reference, Morpheus appears in the "Matrix" movie. He spent his whole life looking for 'The One,' who turns out to be Neo (portrayed by Keanu Reeves). Morpheus offered him the chance to escape the Matrix and see the world as it is instead of the simulation he was living in.
It's unclear what Kyrie is trying to say with this, but he's confident in his message. Plenty of fans support him and the player wants to be a voice for them. Even if that means he sits out for the rest of the season, Kyrie doesn't seem to change his stance right now.
Meanwhile, the Nets are trying to adapt to life without him. Kevin Durant and James Harden are doing their best, but this team needs Kyrie to be at full strength. When will that happen? Only Irving knows.
