“If I could work and could not be vaccinated, all my unvaccinated relatives should be able to do the same without discrimination, stigma or dismissal.”
K. Irving, 30, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.
Last year, he played only 29 NBA games. First, because New York City has a law that prevents those who are not vaccinated from working in the city.
New York eventually lifted the ban.
If I could work and not be vaccinated, then all my unvaccinated brothers and sisters should be able to do the same without discrimination, insult or dismissal. ♾🤞🏾
The implemented vaccine / epidemic is one of the largest human rights abuses in history.

The basketball player himself claimed last year in the first half of the season, “This is his life and he chooses what to do.”
With these words, the 29-year-old basketball star explained his decision not to be vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine.
Speaking on social media, the basketball player said he was not an anti-vaxxer or a supporter of the vaccine, adding that he understood the consequences of his decision.
“I will keep fit, I will be ready to play with my teammates. This is not a political issue, it is not about the NBA or any other organization. It’s about my life and what I choose to do, ”said K. Irving.
He was speaking after the Nets decided in the first half of October to ban basketball players who were not vaccinated from training with the team until he was vaccinated against COVID-19.
However, the basketball player maintained his position but could only play basketball in the opponent’s arena.
Under his current contract, he will earn .5 36.5m for the Nets next season. USD.
