Brooklyn Nets Unsuspending Unvaxxed Kyrie as Too Many Vaxxed NBA Players Come Down with Covid, Puts Twitter in Stitches

Lazy eyes listen


Twitter just can’t get enough of this one.

In October this year, Brooklyn Nets suspended their star player, Kyrie Irving, until such time as he would get vaccinated against COVID-19.

But barely two months later, the Nets have unsuspended the star player reportedly due to high levels of covid related health issues among the vaccinated players as the NBA reels under a covid explosion.

AP reports that 39 members, roughly 8% of the NBA league’s roster are down with covid.

Suspended for Being Unvaccinated

Under management of Sean Marks, the Nets had said at his suspension in early October,

“Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant.”

“Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose. Currently the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability.”

Twitter could not get enough of this one.
