Towards the end of the month, questions were raised about Kiri Irving’s vaccination status when he practically joined their Media Day on the Brooklyn Net, and an earlier Fox Sports report noted that Kiri didn’t even get the first shot of the vaccine.
With the NBA Games starting this month, teams are getting ready to return to court, and cities like New York City have instructed that people should be fully vaccinated to participate in indoor events. The order presents a big problem for Kiri and the new report says that if he doesn’t get vaccinated, he risks losing a big bag in every game.
According to ESPN’s Team Bontemps, players who do not play are at risk of losing 1 / 91.6th of their salary each year. For Kiri Irving, the risk means the potential 381,000 per game will be deducted from his salary.
“Reporting with Obby Bobbymarks with 2: The NBA and NBPA have agreed to reduce player pay by 1 / 11th of a player’s salary for each game, according to local law. For example, Kiri Irving will lose a total of $ 381,000 per game
Similarly, Golden State Guard Andrew Wiggins recently expressed frustration with the vaccine mandate, saying, “You don’t own your own body.” Andrew revealed that he was vaccinated after he refused a religious exemption from the shot.
“Andrew was vaccinated,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He told me today that he is well with us and that this is the end of it. I’m not going to answer any questions outside of that. ”
Kiri has not yet spoken publicly about her vaccination status and has asked to respect her privacy in this regard.
