Usually, a player in the NBA is known for their elite basketball skills. At least that's true for most of the players in the league right now. But Kyrie Irving is different. It's not that he doesn't possess a great ability to play basketball.
If anything, when he's focused on the game, he is unarguably one of the top players in the NBA. However, the biggest issue with Irving over the last few years has been his constant shenanigans off the court.
For the Boston Celtics, many believed he was the reason behind the chemistry issues in the locker room. After leaving the Celtics, he decided to join the Brooklyn Nets but hasn't really played many games.
The biggest reason that contributed to Kai being sidelined in the 2021-22 NBA season was his stance on the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the rise in cases, the league-mandated every player to get the vaccine.
When most accepted it without any drama, Kyrie stood out and blew the matter out of proportion as he didn't want to get vaccinated. He even decided to call himself a martyr for 'fighting' against the league's policy of vaccination and was destroyed by Stephen A. Smith for those comments.
Kyrie Irving Is Back With Another Problematic Tweet
Well, it seems like Irving cannot keep himself away from drama. The Brooklyn Nets point guard recently tweeted about the COVID-19 vaccine. This time around, he called the 'forced vaccination' a violation of human rights.
If I can work and be unvaccinated, then all of my brothers and sisters who are also unvaccinated should be able to do the same, without being discriminated against, vilified, or fired.
This enforced Vaccine/Pandemic is one the biggest violations of HUMAN RIGHTS in history.
To be honest, this tweet by Irving leaves us speechless. It's actually shocking that Irving is comparing a vaccine mandate to human rights violations.
With the 2022-23 NBA season all set to begin within a month, the Nets wouldn't want Irving to make these bizarre claims. The franchise wants to win an NBA Championship this season and would want Kai to be completely focused on playing basketball rather than wrongfully tweeting about things.
