Irving has played in the NBA for 10 seasons. There will be no end to this anytime soon, as he vehemently denies all rumors of his resignation.

“Nobody kidnaps that voice. And see if they play this on their TV channels and if they play this truth somewhere before you start talking about me and what I do with my life. And no, I’m not retiring, and no, I’m not leaving this game like this. “Kyrie said live on Instagram on October 13th via Brandon “Shovel B” Robinson.

Irving also says he realizes that he is sacrificing a lot in choosing not to get vaccinated. Including a legitimate chance for this year’s NBA title. But for him, the decision not to get vaccinated is much bigger than basketball.

“You think I want to lose money and I’ve been working for a living since I was fourth grade,” Irving said on Instagram per Landon Buford. “I don’t want to lose my dream because of a mandate or what’s going on in the world.”

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported on October 12th that Irving’s decision not to get vaccinated wasn’t really about not wanting to get the vaccine. Rather, Irving’s decision was about the people who lost their jobs because they refused to take the vaccine. Kyrie confirmed this report during his Instagram Live session on Wednesday night.

“I stand by all those who believe what is right. Everyone has the right to do what he thinks is best for himself. When you see how this divides our world … it’s sad to see … people lose jobs through mandates, ”Irving said on Instagram per Charania.

“It’s not an anti-vax. It’s about what is good for me. I feel insecure … and that’s fine. I know the consequences of the choice I make with my life. These are crazy times that we are in. I haven’t hurt anyone. I haven’t committed a crime. “

Irving added that even though he chose not to get the vaccine, he still supports those who did. Because ultimately it’s about helping people do what is best for them.

“If you choose the vaccine, I will support you. Do what is best for you. I continue to pray for all of those out there who have lost people to COVID in the pandemic, ”said Irving.

With everything that has happened to Kyrie’s status for this season, some have wondered how that will affect Nets star James Harden’s upcoming contract renewal. While the situation isn’t ideal, Harden says he and the rest of the Nets respect Irving’s decision. But the goal remains the same. That means winning the NBA title.

“Kyrie believes in his belief and he is firm. We respect it, we all love Ky, ”Harden said via Brian Lewis from the “New York Post”. “But we have a job to do and I still want to prepare for a championship as an individual. The whole organization is on the same path “

The main takeaway from Kyrie’s Instagram live session is that he seems perfectly satisfied with not playing basketball. At least for now. If there’s anything positive for the Nets, it’s that Irving has publicly stated that he won’t step down, which could make it easier to trade him with another team if they decide to move from him.
