Kyrie Irving is no longer a part-time player for the Brooklyn Nets as he is officially allowed to play at his home arena, Barclays Center. The season so far has been a complete roller coaster for him, as he was initially sidelined due to New York City’s vaccination order, but then the franchise decided to bring him back to street games as a part-time player, and months later he finally made his debut while staying firmly with his decision not to be vaccinated. He has been one of the most criticized players so far this season as fans trolled and criticized his decision without taking the opportunity to attack him.

Recently, the Brooklyn Nets hosted the Charlotte Hornets at the Barclays Center. The game was tightly contested and head-to-head, but the Hornets’ second-half top scorers, led by LaMelo Ball, got the job done as they added a win to their record. The final boxing score is 110-119 in favor of the Charlotte Hornets. Currently, the Brooklyn Nets are ranked the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference with a record 39 wins and 36 losses at .520.

In the game, Kyrie Irving had 16 points, 11 assists and 2 rebounds while playing for 41 minutes. He had many standouts as he was always picking up buckets for his team while also being great supporting Kevin Durant. Kyrie Irving would have won his debut game but LaMelo Ball ruined it for him as he had hot hands from deep while waving three pointers.

Kyrie Irving talks about the season and the things that happened to him for his decision to go vaccinated in the post-game quoted: “For me, this season has never been about just taking a stand. It was really about making sure I stand on what I believe in, freedom. Freedom, I don’t think that’s a word that’s defined enough in our society, about the freedom to make decisions about your life without anyone telling you what the hell to do and whether that affects nuances of ours Society confers, politicians control, government controls, or things that people in power hold…the forces that can be. I stand for freedom, so that’s in all facets of my life. There is no one who enslaves me. I don’t want anyone telling me what to do with my life and that’s just the way I am and when I get tarnished in terms of my image and people keep slandering my name because those aren’t things I forget. I haven’t forgotten anything anyone said. I don’t read everything, but I definitely read some things that put my family’s name in a certain position that I feel is unfair.”

Kyrie Irving has been very direct in his explanation of his legacy and his stance that he has not been vaccinated throughout the period he has been trolled and criticized. In his statement, Uncle Drew pointed to freedom most of the time and how his choices were purposeful all the time while doing what he wanted as he was free to choose. Now it’s a completely different story as he gets to play in his home arena and the Nets are back on track to regain their lost place and respect.
