Kyrie Irving is certainly one of the best basketball players in the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets star might also retire as well due to his refusal to adhere to the COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Due to his refusal to get vaccinated, Kyrie Irving could miss up to 45 games this season. It seems Irving got support from an unexpected source.
From the looks of it, Kyrie Irving couldn’t care less about missing out on the seasons as even his coach has accepted that fact. Irving was put on blast for it and heavily criticized by several people, including former NBA players such as Raja Bell.
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather took to his Instagram and uploaded a video, where he showed his support for Kyrie Irving. He made sure to support Irving’s anti-vaxx stance as well by stating that Mayweather is pro choice.
“Choice is defined as an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities. To my understanding, America gave us the choice to take the vaccine or not take the vaccine originally. As time moves on, that choice is gradually being stripped from us. Limiting the jobs we can do, places we can go, and activities we can perform.
Trying to beat us into submission of what they say is best for us. It’s sad people are hated, punished, teased, and discriminated for not taking the vaccine, for making their own choice, standing up for what they not only think is right, but know is right for them and their families… I’m Pro Choice, we all should have a right to choose what we want, what is best for ourselves, what is best for our loved ones! If you decide to take the vaccine, fine… Rather respect should be earned by everyone who makes their own choice and chooses liberty! For myself, my children, my loved ones… I choose life, I choose liberty, I choose freedom!”
Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks recently revealed that Kyrie Irving will not practice or play for the Brooklyn Nets until he is ready to be a full-time participant. It is unlikely Irving will get vaccinated anytime soon from the looks of it and that is not going to change. At least for Irving’s sake, he has some supporters, even if we can’t condone what he is doing.
