The Brooklyn Nets’ woes might be behind them after Kyrie Irving released a statement stating he has taken his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine after consulting with Bill Gates to answer his questions. Irving has been a public skeptic of the COVID shot and has not yet played in the NBA season due to protocols as a result.
“Bill and I talked thoroughly for an hour and after speaking with him I now feel comfortable taking the COVID vaccine. I apologize to any discourse I’ve caused my team and apologize to fans who were disappointed in my actions. I am not encouraging anyone to take the jab, but for me now I feel this is the best choice.”
