Kyrie Irving Blames New York City Mayor Eric Adams For Brooklyn Exit

Dallas Mavericks point guard Kyrie Irving attacked Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams upon his return to Brooklyn.

Irving returned to Brooklyn with the Mavs for the first time since being unceremoniously kicked out of town for refusing to take the coronavirus vaccine. After Irving scored a game-high 36 points, fans asked him why he didn't play like this in Brooklyn.

“Thank you Mayor Adams,” Starguard replied.

While in New York, Irving was subject to Adams' indoor vaccination mandate and was disqualified from attending Brooklyn's home games and relegated to exclusively road games. (Related: 'The biggest human rights violation': Kyrie Irving slams Eric Adams over vaccination mandate)

Even when Mr. Adams lifted the citywide mandate, he maintained provisions restricting private sector employees and athletes/entertainers from participating in activities. Therefore, although Irving was allowed to attend the game as a spectator, he could not play. This makes a lot of sense.

As everyone knows, the coronavirus was the most respectful disease ever invented. As long as you prove yourself to be humble and obedient, the virus will simply refuse to enter your body. Are you sitting in the stands and enjoying the game even though you haven't been vaccinated? no problem. Are you playing in a suit? Now you're putting your life at risk, you inconsiderate bastard.

In all seriousness, the Irving-Adams saga essentially destroyed one of the most talented rosters with a chance at an NBA title.

Brooklyn signed Irving and star forward Kevin Durant in 2019, then traded for superstar guard James Harden in perhaps the most talked-about trade since LeBron took that talent to South Beach. formed a trio.

However, the superstar team was unable to fully gel, and Irving's inability to take the court at home was a big factor.

GM Sean Marks decided to release all three players, extinguishing the embers of what could have been a dynasty.
