Last week, Nets star Kyrie Irving went live on Instagram to explain to the world why he has choosen to remain unvaccinated. Nets head coach Steve Nash was asked before Thursday’s preseason game about his thoughts on the video — and Nash claims he didn’t watch it.
A pro-vaxxer didn’t bother to hear the other side’s point of view because he doesn’t agree with it? No one should be shocked to read this.
“I didn’t listen to it, and I’ve pretty much said everything I’ve had to say about it,” Nash said. “If something changes. we’ll talk about it.”

Nash was then asked how he’s planning to handle the questions on Irving’s absence.
“It’s going to come up throughout the year,” he said. “It may not be an everyday thing like it is now, but I’m sure it’s going to come up here and there. But we’re pros. We understand. We know the media has a job to do, so it’s on us to focus in on our job and answer the questions. We are not going to get irritated at what you all ask. It’s part of the job.”
Steve Nash is essentially saying he expects the Kyrie questions to fade because he won’t be as relevant after a while. The same will be assumed when millions of Americans quit their jobs over the vaccine mandates because our pro-vax community believes they can move on without us. Don’t like the new standards? Then forever-maskers like Steve Nash, who haven’t stood up for Irving during any step of this process, will find a way to move on without you. Their only support is a hand on Irving’s shoulder hoping he follows their lead like a Jim Jones cult.
Nash mentioned how necessary it was for him and the rest of his team to “focus on jobs,” but isn’t a head coach supposed to back his players? Apparently not when players ask for medical freedom.
Irving claimed that he was promised he could play regardless of his vaccination status. However, the NBAPA voted to disallow players in New York and California to participate while unvaccinated. Not only that, but their game checks would be forked over as well. It’s not surprising to watch Steve Nash tell our media he won’t add anything to the Irving situation unless his vaccination status changes. The ends always justify the means for this group of followers. Medical ultimatums are apparently the new normal.
