Earlier this week the Nets announced that they would not allow Kyrie Irving to play or practice with the team due to the fact that he isn't vaccinated. Plenty of speculation about how Kyrie would handle this followed, including a report that he would consider retiring.
Kyrie decided to speak out about the situation on Instagram Live. He's not retiring because of a vaccine mandate. He doesn't believe anyone should be forced to do anything with their bodies.

Like I said, I don't think Kyrie will be backing down anytime soon. He might sit out this season, but he's not hanging up his sneakers. He's not just standing up for what he believes he's proven that he loves sitting out too.
