Just in general, you the know the one that drives me crazy? ‘I’m doing my own research.’ I would like someone to answer this question: What does that look like? You’re doing your own research? Are you doing studies yourself? Are you in the lab on a nightly basis? What’re you doing? I don’t understand what that means. ‘I’m doing my own research.’

How about this? We got really smart people, a lot smarter than anybody in the NBA who’s already done the research.

Irving is set to miss at least 41 regular-season home games, two against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden and one at the Golden State Warriors in San Francisco for not getting the vaccine.

Irving wasn’t attending the team’s media day in person due to New York City’s 新冠肺炎 协议, and he received plenty of questions about his vaccination status and whether he would be compliant before the start of the NBA season.

“老实说, I’d like to keep that stuff private,” Irving told reporters, 通过 SNY. “I’m a human being first. Obviously living in this public sphere it’s just a lot of questions about what’s going on in the world of Kyrie. And I think I just would love to just keep that private, handle it the right way with my team and go forward together with the plan.

Obviously I’m not able to be present there today. But that doesn’t mean that I’m putting any limits on the future of me being able to join the team. And I just want to keep it that way, so we can keep that private. But if anyone has any further questions about that, it’ll be the same response. I would like to keep that private, and just please respect thatmy privacy.
