Kyrie Irving continues to be controversial on the side of the NBA. The player of Brooklyn still does not want to be vaccinated against Covid-19. As a result, the leader of Net should miss all of his team’s home games. For his teammate Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving is the sole master of his decision.
“He does what he wants and the team does the same”
In an interview with ESPN and reported by Basketball USA, Kevin Durant spoke out on the controversy Kyrie Irving : ” Obviously we want Kyrie to be here. I wish none of this had happened, but we are in this situation. Kyrie has made his decision, he does what he wants and the team does the same. Me, I have to focus on myself, on my job and let both camps handle this situation. I want the team to be full, but sometimes it doesn’t work that way. I’m staying positive and I think things will work out for both parties. We always have to do what we love to do every day. The situation is not ideal to start the season, but there is nothing we can do about it. We just have to focus on our work. What would being angry do? We’re not going to make him change his mind. And who could I blame? I can’t blame people who make decisions for themselves. “
