Cleveland – El base de los Brooklyn Nets, Keri IrvingOn Monday, he made clear that his stance on the COVID-19 vaccine would not change in the wake of his knee injury. Kevin Durant, which is expected to marginalize him for four to six weeks.
Irving is not immunized and therefore ineligible to play at home due to the local mandate that all professional athletes playing in public spaces in New York City be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Irving said no injury or other circumstance would force him to change his mind, repeatedly stressing that it was “inherent” in his decision.

He will recover how, it will be how he will be fine, and we have to deal with that as his teammates. But in terms of my place in my life outside of this, I am solid in my decision. And that is exactly what it is.”
“It won’t be affected by just one thing in the life of the NBA. It catches my attention in a way as something more important than what happens in the real world. And again, I respect the opinion of others. I am protected by my teammates, I am protected by All the doctors I spoke to.”

During his post-match interview, Irving said it bothers him that his decision is unresolved and that it is often framed in the context of his career, rather than the context of his personal life.
