Kyrie Irving becomes NBA’s anti-vaccine face

Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving, an NBA champion and seven-time all star, has become the face of a vocal minority of prominent NBA stars voicing their hesitancy toward the COVID-19 vaccine.

The All-Star guard, who serves as vice president of the players union that blocked the NBA’s effort to impose a vaccine mandate, has sparked backlash from health experts and basketball legends by refusing to get vaccinated.
