Irving caused trouble by attacking the mayor of New York over the Covid-19 vaccine

Kyrie Irving He said what he thought, without filters, which caused many problems in his career.

When he returned to Brooklyn last night, a fan who sat in the front row and was impressed by the level Irving showed, 36 points, He asked the point guard a question, receiving a direct answer.

-Kyrie, why didn’t you play like that when you were with the Nets? – asked the fan.

“Thank you Mayor Adams for that, brother,” replied ’11.

Irving shot the mayor of New York, Eric Adams, because of the law he advocated during the pandemic to force everyone who attends closed public events in the city to be vaccinated.

The rule made the point guard, who refused to be vaccinated covid-19, cannot play any home games with the Nets in the 2021-2022 season until March, when he benefits from the exemption that Adams decided to apply to the athletes. In a way, Irving blamed the mayor for his lack of continuity in that campaign, where he only ran 29 meetings.

Even if Kyrie Irving could play in the game, Brooklyn decided to suspend him that season before kickoff until he was vaccinated, which never happened.

Finally, forced by their classification situation, the Nets allowed Irving to play again even though he was not vaccinated and the point guard made his debut that year in January 2022.

That was not the only time where the New York franchise had to remove the All Star from the team, because in November 2022 it suspended the star for promoting an anti-Semitic film on Twitter.

’11’ talks about how he wants to be remembered in Brooklyn, where he spent four years between 2019 and 2023 with Kevin Durant and James Harden a year before asking to be traded and ending up with the Mavericks.

“Honestly, I don’t care because it’s subjective. Everyone has their own opinion. Of course, I’ll let it go. Hopefully in the next few years it will be forgotten,” said Kyrie Irving, always sincere.
