Kyrie Irving following and liking conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines

  Kyrie Irving following and liking conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines Irving, who serves as a vice president on the executive committee of th e players’ union, recently started following and liking Instagram posts from a conspiracy theorist who claims that “secret societies” are implanting vaccines in a plot to connect Black people to a master computer for “a plan of Satan.” This Moderna microchip misinformation campaign has spread across multiple NBA locker rooms and group chats, according to several of the dozen-plus current players, Hall-of-Famers, league executives, arena workers and virologists interviewed for this story over the past week.

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Steve Nash says any instance where Kyrie Irving can be around the team is positive. “I don’t think that anyone’s really been through this before … but now we’re in the position where the pandemic is creating all these new scenarios.” – 5:57 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Nets owner hopes to see Kyrie Irving 'play fully' during 2021-22 season

  Nets owner hopes to see Kyrie Irving 'play fully' during 2021-22 season Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving didn't show up to media day because he is unvaccinated, and team owner Joe Tsai hopes the star point guard changes his mind. © Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving "So Kyrie talks about it as a sort of personal choice issue, which I respect. But we all need to not forget that our goal," Tsai told The New York Post's Brian Lewis. "What is our goal this year? What's our purpose this year? It's very, very clear: Win a championship. And the championship team needs to have everybody pulling the same direction.

Asked about having Irving as a part-time player changes with the news of him able to practice, Steve Nash says “My first kind of thought is that it’s positive. We have him around the team for a larger period of our season. We’ll see what it means.” – 5:56 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Report: Nets losing confidence Kyrie Irving will get vaccinated

  Report: Nets losing confidence Kyrie Irving will get vaccinated Nets general manager Sean Marks said he was confident all Brooklyn players would meet New York City's vaccine mandate as training camp opened. © Provided by NBC Sports But the Nets returned to practice in Brooklyn today, and Kyrie Irving – who’s reportedly unvaccinated – didn’t participate. If he remains unvaccinated without an exemption, he won’t be allowed to play Nets home games.

Steve Nash: “The hope is that Kyrie Irving will practice tomorrow, but I can’t confirm that.” #Nets5:55 PM Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM

Steve Nash says he hopes Kyrie Irving will be able to practice at the team’s practice outdoors at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday. Nash also says that he is hopeful that Irving will join team on road on Sunday at Philadelphia. – 5:55 PM Ian Begley @IanBegley

Nets’ coach Steve Nash says ‘the hope is that’ Kyrie Irving will practice with the Nets tomorrow at their annual outdoor practice. Nash says Kevin Durant and James Harden will play tonight vs. MIL. Paul Millsap is out due to health and safety protocols. – 5:54 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

James Harden on Kyrie Irving: ‘I want him to be on the team, of course’

  James Harden on Kyrie Irving: ‘I want him to be on the team, of course’ The Nets go into Friday night’s game vs. the defending NBA champion Bucks with a clean bill of health other than Kyrie Irving who has been ruled ineligible to play because he’s in violation of New York City’s COVID-19 regulations. He’s not been vaccinated so he can’t play. Of course, he couldn’t practice either this week for the same reason. And so, it would appear the Nets current controversy will carry on for at least another day. There’s nothing to say that Irving won’t suddenly change his mind and get the one shot he needs to play, practice or participate in team activities.

Steve Nash said there’s a chance Kyrie Irving could join the #Nets at Brooklyn Bridge Park tomorrow. Adds Paul Millsap is out tonight (health and safety protocols). #NBA5:54 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

“The hope is that Kyrie Irving will practice tomorrow, but I can’t confirm that,” says Steve Nash. – 5:53 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

Steve Nash also says,

“The hope is that Kai (Kyrie Irving) is at practice tomorrow.” – 5:53 PM Ian Begley @IanBegley

“It’s positive for us,” Steve Nash says when asked about The Athletic’s report that states NYC has deemed the Nets’ practice facility a private facility, which allows Kyrie Irving to practice there. Nash didn’t want to comment in detail until he learned more about the ruling. – 5:52 PM The Vertical @YahooSportsNBA

Kyrie Irving has been cleared to practice at home after NYC determined the Nets’ practice facility is a private office building, per @Shams Charania. Will still need vaccination to play home games. pic.twitter.com/xTzsaPiGyX5:51 PM

Will Kyrie Irving play this season? Latest news, updates on Nets star's vaccination status

  Will Kyrie Irving play this season? Latest news, updates on Nets star's vaccination status Will the Nets really allow Kyrie Irving to be a part-time player? It's unclear whether the Nets would be comfortable only having Irving participate in practices and games outside of New York City or prefer to keep him away from the team until he is vaccinated. Brooklyn has been supportive of Irving and respected his decision, but the organization is only willing to bend so far.

Steve Nash calls @Shams Charania‘s report on Irving’s ability to practice in Brooklyn “positive news.” – 5:51 PM Dan Favale @danfavale

practice facility kyrie is going to be a problem ???? – 5:50 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Durant on Irving practicing with Nets: ‘We want him here for the whole thing’

  Durant on Irving practicing with Nets: ‘We want him here for the whole thing’ "That's always tough when guys are in and out of the lineup, especially a starter like Kyrie."The city’s decision brings Irving around the team more but keeps him a part-time player.

Steve Nash declines to give a starting lineup for tonight. Says they may have Kyrie Irving on the road Sunday, but isn’t sure of his status for Monday’s game because he hasn’t been with the team for a week. – 5:50 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Steve Nash says it sounds like the team may have Kyrie Irving on the road with them. – 5:50 PM Shams Charania @ShamsCharania

More on this storyline

Shams Charania: City Hall official says Irving is cleared to practice at home, but still not able to play in games at Barclays Center until the All-NBA guard fulfills vaccine requirement. -via Twitter @ShamsCharania / October 8, 2021 Brian Lewis: Steve Nash on Irving being able to practice at HSS: “Its positive to be able to welcome him back into the building him and have him be part of the team…It sounds like its positive news.” #Nets #NBA -via Twitter @NYPost_Lewis / October 8, 2021 At this point, the Nets — both management and players — say they want Irving back on the court, but respect his privacy claims. “If he’s not on the court, yeah [it would hurt us]. He’s one of our best players and one of our leaders,” Harden said after practice Thursday. “I want him to be on the team, of course,” Harden told reporters when asked if he hopes Irving would get vaccinated. “He’s been a huge part since I’ve been here, a huge part of our success. The success we did have last year, we were kind of finding a rhythm, that chemistry that we’ve built. I can remember last year that one road trip we had, me and Kyrie. He’s just a special talent that you don’t really see often, so of course I would want him to be on the team. He’s one of the reasons why I came here.” -via NetsDaily / October 8, 2021
