Kyrie Irving has always been the biggest game changer for the Brooklyn Nets and when the franchise struggled mid-season they decided to somehow bring Irving back for away games as he refused to get vaccinated. NYC’s Covid safety laws prevented him from playing basketball in the city. While Mayor Eric Adams has announced an easing, it appears Kyrie has yet to wait to perform in front of home crowds.
As New York City continues to see a decline in Covid cases, Mayor Adam decided to relax laws beginning March 7. Under the new mandate, compulsory vaccination will not be required for indoor dining, fitness and entertainment venues, but the private sector has not been exempted from this mandate, of which Eric Adams said: “Not at this moment. It’s part of our continuation of the release as we get better with those numbers. Not at this moment”.

Mayor Eric Adams wants Kyrie Irving to play at home but can’t let him because “so much at stake”
Under the new mandates, Irving may not be able to play at home, but he will be allowed into the game as a spectator. What’s more, even Mayor Adams would “love very much” to see the 29-year-old play at home, but says allowing Irving to play without a vaccine would send the wrong signal to people who work in the city.
On Monday, just a day after NYC’s new laws were announced, Adams told CNBC, “Listen, I want Kyrie on the court. I would do anything to get this ring. But there is so much at stake here.”
He further added, “We want to find a way to get Kyrie on the pitch but that’s a bigger problem. I can’t have my city shut down again. Making an exception for just one player would send the wrong message when we tell countless employees in New York City, “If you don’t play by the rules, you can’t get hired.”
