Kyrie Irving’s vaccine situation is making it hard for both the Nets as well as fans to keep a straight mind. Along with the Brooklyn Nets, it seems that former NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has had enough of him as well.

Shaq is of the opinion that if Irving is being uncooperative and refusing to get vaccinated, the team should simply “get him up out of here.” Irving is unable to participate in the home games as the NYC vaccination mandate requires for everyone to be vaccinated.

Irving’s neglect is getting on the nerves of Shaq. After getting asked about Irving’s role in the odds for the Nets for a title run with Kevin Durant and James Harden, Shaq told Tiki and Tierney:

I would go upstairs and say, ‘Get him up out of here.’ We can win with a two-punch and a great shooter and some rebounders like we got. Get his ass up out of here. Of course, if I played with him, I’d be in charge all the way, all day. Whoever owns the Brooklyn Nets, get him up out of here.

Shaquille recently stage-dived in the Lands Lost Music Festival. He expressed that he is done with being a celebrity. Paul Wight (The Big Show) recently revealed that he thinks a match with Shaquille O’Neal is finally a possibility after his debut at AEW.
