    The NBA is letting NBA players make that choice. I think you are confusing the San Francisco and New York City local governments for the NBA.

    Kyrie Irving has no plans to get vaccinated despite a mandate requiring him to do so in order to play in home games with the Brooklyn Nets.

    "As of right now he's not [playing this season]," said Shams Charania on CNN. "I'm told Kyrie Irving has no plans to get vaccinated."

    Charania outlined how there's only three routes available to Irving currently based on his position: sit the entire season, wait for the New York City mandate to be lifted, or be traded. City Hall officials have told Charania there is no plan to lift their mandate.

    Irving does want to keep playing and has maintained that he's not anti-vaccine and is instead anti-mandate. Irving, however, didn't get the vaccine even before the mandate came into effect.

    The NBA has approximately 20 players who are unvaccinated, but Irving is the only one who is impacted by the decision in terms of being barred from playing in certain games.

    He should just retire now if he really wants to make a statement. Go out with a bang.

    Yeah it seems like he’s back himself into a very costly corner from my view at ringside

    if you were a woman and your boss or the government required of you that he injects you with his semen for the greater good (more enjoyment on the workplace, to fix low birthrate across the country) or your own good( you be healthier, youre life will be fulfilled with sex and kids)

    if you think this is inappropriate metaphor or a joke... just you wait few years down the line i bet you any money this will be happening and i bet you any money this is already happening somewhere or/and has happened in the past...

    in other words would you have approved of the rape if the goverment or experts mandated it by law?

    i can already see headlines in the news:
    'Our nation is dying out of the white plague, its important for these women to stand in line and get inseminated to save the nation' .

    'Get inseminated today, dont be selfish'

    'Those who refuse to get inseminated will be fired from the jobs and refused all the goverment foodstamps'

    GOVERNMENT=SLAVERY

    I will bet you that by 2024 (a few years from now) the US government will still not be requiring a female employee to be 'injected' with her boss's semen.

    If you truly believe that, you are beyond hope. If you are simply trolling, then you are showing your idiocy.

    I'll take that bet. How long is a "few years?"

    You’ve been vaccinated several times to attend school and/or gain certain employment. This is nothing new. You have no excuse to be ignorant on this topic anymore. That semen analogy is beyond frivolous

    Dude, come on man, use better examples. We all know damn well that this is not an apples to apples comparison. It's no different than people attempting to use the argument that pedophiles will be an accepted group in this country some day when trying to argue against the LGBT community. Do us all a favor and grow some brain cells and challenge yourself to come up with legit examples, not idiot stupid examples.

    I understand the point of your argument, however, the example you are attempting to use is beyond idiotic.
