    I honestly didn’t see how you could let him be a part-time player. Might not happen immediately, but eventually that was going to kill the locker room unless the players were collectively on-board with someone putting in half the effort but reaping the same rewards as the full-time players.

    i think this entire situation speaks volumes about the character (or lack thereof) of his college coach and the program he runs whomever that may be

    Kyrie becoming a right wing hero seems like the most natural progression.

    Stupid people always seem to find each other.

    It makes no sense. If he wanted to be a voice for the voiceless he wouldn't have refused to answer questions or elaborate on why he wasn't vaccinated. This seems like a backtrack and hopefully step 1 in the realization for him that he has to be vaccinated there is no alternative.

    Seems like there's 2 obvious follow ups to that story that Shams completely ignores...

    1. If Kyrie wants to be a voice for the voiceless, why won't he talk to anyone about it?
    2. If Kyrie isn't anti-vax or anti-science (as Shams suggests multiple times), and this is just about government forcing people to get the vax, why wouldn't he get the vaccine, sit anyway, and then make this case?

    Kyrie is dumb enough to believe all this stuff, but he's just smart enough to know that saying the words out loud and confirming those beliefs will lead to ridicule. So he thinks them, and then hides behind never publicly commenting on those thoughts to give him enough cover where some people will remain loyal.

    The frustrating part for me is that he has done a lot of really legitimately awesome things. Like donate a million dollars to wnba players who had their salaries affected by the shortened season. Or donate thousands of masks and food for people during the pandemic and even get water to a village in pakistan. But then he does things like this that are just inexplicable and indefensible and the worst part is its self inflicted. The media or celtics fans aren't out to get him here. This is a 100% Kyrie torpedoing Kyrie.

    I mean that’s objectively false. Also, fuck anyone that loses their job bc they refuse to get vaccinated without a legit medical reason

    His agent and PR team can spin it however they want. He is potentially sabotaging an NBA title opportunity. Even if his cause was noble, that is hard to come back from in professional sports.

    She has a point, letting Magic play with full blown HIV was a risky proposition, especially considering how the Showtime Lakers often shared hypodermic needles on fast breaks.
