Nets head coach Steve Nash was asked if he’d consider moving practice out of New York to allow an unvaccinated Kyrie Irving to practice and he swiftly said no.
“This is our home, Nash said after today’s practice. “This is where we’re going to practice.” A uniting message unless of course you opted out of the vaccine. In that case, it’s an incredibly divisive statement that would leave anyone feeling excluded unless you comply.
Steve Nash said the Nets don't plan to move practice out of their Brooklyn facility, to say…Long Island or New Jersey, in order to get Irving able to join them. "This is our home, this is where we're going to practice."

According to Yahoo’s Shams Charania, Irving sat out of this morning’s practice due to New York’s vaccine requirements.
The only reason Steve Nash and the our government gets away with these type of statements is because they hide behind “the greater good.” Nash could easily move practice across the water to allow Kyrie to prepare for the season, but he chooses not to. Why, you might ask? Because taking a stand for employees we disagree with is for courageous Americans. In your face liberals, despite what they originally stood for, don’t have a courageous bone in their bodies.
The rest that pretend to care about human lives won’t bother to question New York City’s protocols as to how Kyrie puts his teammates at risk by remaining unvaccinated. It’s too bad that Irving stands to be shut out by his own coach and state leadership, and god forbid he doesn’t fold to the pressure, he loses himself more than $20 million in the process. That’s assuming Irving misses all 41 Nets home games due to covid restrictions.
