The Nets announced on Tuesday that Kyrie Irving will not be allowed to play or practice with the team as long as he is unvaccinated. While saying they respect his personal choice to not get vaccinated they will not allow any member of their team to be available on a part-time basis.
"Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant. Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose. Currently the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability."
New York City is of course one of the growing list of places in the world that has lost touch with reality and won't allow anyone who is not vaccinated, including players, into indoor sporting events. The decision to not allow Kyrie to play or practice came from the team's owner.
Sean Marks says that the decision on Kyrie came down to him and Joe Tsai.

Don't tempt Kyrie with a good time. I would be shocked if he got vaccinated this season. He's not a guy who backs down very often. This just underscores the madness that has come along with the coronavirus. Get a vaccine or you can't work.
