Kyrie Irving Refuses To Take COVID-19 Vaccine, Will Remain Benched

Have you been vaccinated against COVID-19 yet? If not, would you get vaccinated for $1,000? What about $137 Million...? Well, that's how much Kyrie Irving's NBA contract is for, and he's playing the bench while facing a possible trade since he continues to refuse taking the shot.

The Brooklyn Nets general manager said this, regarding the issue: “We respect Kyrie’s individual right to choose. We will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability.”

An insider revealed K.I. refuses the vaccine to be a voice for the voiceless. “To Kyrie, this is about a grander fight than the one on the court.”

A lot more people are standing beside him than you'd think! Just take a look at the baller's Instagram comments:
