Unvaccinated Kyrie Irving set to lose out on $15.5M

Post by Jonrox »

Due to being unvaccinated, Kyrie Irving will not be allowed to play home games in Brooklyn and will not be paid for those games as per the NBA-NBAPA agreement regarding the following of local Covid guidelines. In total he'll miss out on around $15.5 million.

Because the league agreement would allow him to play away games, but the team has decided not to let him practice or play, he'll still be paid for the away games the team keeps him out of.

I'll give him full credit though... he's not making the media rounds complaining about the rules. He knew there would be consequences for his decision and is accepting them. As foolish as I think his decision is, I fully respect it and the way he's handling it.

Full credit to Kyrie for sticking to his guns. That's a lot of cabbage to leave on the table.

However Kyrie already has made more money than he could possibly spend in a lifetime, unless of course he pulls an Alan Iverson.

Kyrie Irving is not Joe Average making $100k a year though. If he was there would be very little chance he (or most people) could afford to take that kind of a major haircut on his income.

Must be nice to be able to take a stance and still be able to pay the bills.

Or, if he was living in the real (financial) world like the rest of us, he would do what it takes to keep himself afloat financially like get a tiny vaccine.

Certainly seems like the vaccine is mandated by the industry he is part of ...

But I think this article covers it well: https://www.mediaite.com/sports/kyrie-i ... l-and-sht/

The twitter threads are hilarious ...

Well if your a sports fan, and basketball in particular, Kyrie has been well known as a bit of a loose cannon and not much of a team player. He is trying to make a stance, willing to forgo millions of $$$, but as with any sort of protest IMO it wont make any difference at all. I have no problem with pro athlete's making the $$ they make...good for them. That being said I also have no problem with him losing all that $$ for making a choice that wont cause or create any change regarding his "cause".

Research the two Edmonton Oilers players who now have myocarditis from the vax .. OR the 17 year old kid who got the vax just so he was allowed to play hockey , then DIED from it ..

I don't have a sniff of Kyrie's money but still think it's not worth taking the chance of getting a "tiny" vaccine ..

Kudo's to him for standing his ground .. He must have went to a better school than UVic AND aspired to more than just track and field

The plot thickens.
Report: Nets won't offer Kyrie Irving $186M extension amid COVID-19 vaccine saga

A day after the Brooklyn Nets announced that Kyrie Irving won't play in any games as long as he's in violation of New York City's vaccine requirement, The Athletic's Shams Charania reports that the team won't offer him a $186 million contract extension that he's eligible to sign.

Charania reported the Nets stance on "The Glue Guys" podcast on Wednesday.

a tiny vaccine.... are you suggesting that the volume of a vaccine is relevant to the damage it can cause? 7 in 10 who died with covid were fully vaccinated in the UK. I would be $200 000 that the vaccine is more damaging then good and that by the end of 2021 it will be complete chaos and everyone will know the vaccines are poison.
