Keri Irving New York City’s vaccine mandate policy is being thrown in its face once again on prime-time television — participating in a home game, without a mask, from the stands…but unable to enter the stadium.
Sunday’s embarrassing scene began live during the Nets’ home game against the Knicks… which was televised by ESPN. During the second quarter, the camera turned to KI, who was shaking hands with people near the bottom of the stands, then climbed into his seat a few rows.
And in that capacity – as a spectator – he’s perfectly fine not to wear a mask and move… because that’s now New York City’s policy on events like this, regardless of the vaccine status. However, their rules regarding special personnel remain unchanged – namely, those people must be vaccinated, and Keri is not like that.
Still…the irony smells of hypocrisy, but more importantly…it smells of a lack of common sense, which is something Doris Burke And other broadcasters got scared…because, if we’re being honest, the regulations here don’t make sense anymore.
Kerry’s former classmate, LeBron JamesHe wasn’t shy about expressing his displeasure with the reverse thinking of New York City. In response to someone pointing out what this joke is, he wrote… “Facts are facts! They literally don’t make any sense at all!!! They say if common sense is common, we’ll all have it. Right? That’s the truth.”
LBJ has been vocal about the pandemic, especially whenever we get to it. Remember, it was only in December that it was suggested that the recent strains looked more like the flu or a cold than anything else… something that was heavily criticized at the time, as some felt it was downplaying the severity of the virus.
However, with more time going by – more people seem willing to say what they really feel… and on the topic of Kyrie, it’s clear that many think he should be allowed to play now, whether with a punch or not.
