Kyrie Irving has not been allowed to play ball because he refuses to get vaccinated for Covid-19.
According to a source, he would get the vaccine under one condition.
“Those closest to him also have shared that Irving knows anything he says will be magnified and scrutinized and he doesn’t want to be viewed as an anti-vaxxer,” reported NBA insider Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson. “He’s not taking this stance to be a voice for the voiceless. He’s just not trusting of the available vaccines, according to sources. Irving also does not want to get vaccinated because of bad experiences with his health due to basketball injuries over the years.”
The baller is on a plant-based diet.
“Irving has adopted a 100-percent plant-based diet, so he could wait until a plant-based version of the vaccine has been completed and approved,” Scoop B continued. “One such vaccine is undergoing clinical trials with more than 30,000 people taking part, according to a report in August.”
