Brooklyn Nets’ Kyrie Irving says anti-vax stance cost him over $100 million
It is not unusual for athletes to be mute. That is the crux of the matter for the whole existence of sport. With social media and athletes having a giant bull whenever they feel like it, without the filter media can give them (imagine Mickey Mantle nowadays), they will feel more encouraged and entitled to share anything from one ear to the other without much stopping between the two. Because of the size of their followers, it’s not surprising, in general, that they feel they are the great orators of our time as well as great entertainers.
It’s when they ask for sympathy for what’s missing in their brains, most people will look like a Malort first shot (look up there, but know only one tagline is “Give your mouth”) you a kick to the ball”).
NBA training camps open this week, which means all the teams are having their media days. This means every star has a spin, which means Kyrie Irving has a microphone, which means our o-zone is much more depleted. And Kyrie wants you to feel sorry for him.
Irving said at Nets media day on Monday: “I gave up four years, 100 million of something to decide not to get vaccinated and that’s the decision. “[Get this] contracted, vaccinated or unvaccinated and there was a degree of uncertainty about your future, whether you will be in this tournament or not, whether you will be on this team, so I had to dealing with the real situation that lost his job because of this decision. “
All in all, we don’t mind what athletes do here. That’s what the job pays, professional labor, they have a shorter pay period than anyone, one wrong step can ruin everything for a moment, etc. However, Kyrie missed the extension. $100 million because he decided that Wikipedia entries written by confused toads was an incorrect way of life cursed by misfortune. Cue the Eric Andre Hannibal Buress gif capture.
The problem with people like Irving mistaking Instagram follower numbers for importance and value is that these assholes never admit the mistake or even that is a possibility. Irving still thinks he’s some kind of Che Guevara/Jesus to the anti-scientific, anti-social crowd, as if they were some oppressed and oppressed underground movement instead of finding anyone. of them on the corner as they turn society into a dump. the fire it’s currently heading (if we haven’t gotten there yet). They got whatever they wanted because the rest of us couldn’t listen to them anymore. It’s the toddler fashion of arguing.
G/O Media may receive a commission
Irving so far his own butt will never come out again, unless he completely passes. In that case, he’ll just crouch again to crawl right back there. Irving will probably still get his money after this season from someone, which, like pretty much every other mask of resistance, the “culture-cancelling” stimulant he’ll miss out on. nothing because of the following things he disparages.
Again, the only thing that was ever asked of Irving was to do something incredibly simple to help protect others, and his opinion was not more important to him, but to him. He had to deny them from his foundation and there were a few people with the wind whistling in their ears praising him for it. It’s the attention he wants, and still wants, and now the situation isn’t turning the way he thought it should because simply because he’s popular, he’s going to try the sympathy route.
Somehow, he’s even less aware of what’s around him than Kevin Durant (making them perfect for each other), since his bubble is so thick he can’t think that someone is there. don’t feel sorry for him.
But when you live in an echo chamber, that’s how the world works. And because some GMs will have a checkbook ready when the time comes, he’ll still think he’s right.
