While it may come five months late, Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant called out NYC Mayor Eric Adams for the city’s immoral COVID-19 jab mandate.
New York City’s private sector mandate has prevented Durant’s teammate, Kyrie Irving, from playing at the Barclays Center.
Irving showcased the idiocy of the city's mandate by sitting courtside at basketball games inside Barclays Center over the weekend.
Kyrie Irving was also in attendance for yesterday’s Duke-Virginia Tech matchup.

Let's review New York City Science:
If an unvaccinated person sits courtside, COVID won't spread to others.
If an unvaccinated person takes a couple steps onto the court, COVID will spread to others.
New York City loves showcasing why it's one of the biggest clown shows in America.
Durant commented on the ridiculous mandate during a Sunday press conference.

"Yeah, I don't get it. It just feels like at this point now, somebody is trying to make a statement or point to flex their authority."
"Everybody out here is looking for attention and that's what I feel like the mayor wants right now, some attention."
Durant rightfully called the whole charade stupid and told Mayor Adams to figure it out.
ESPN paid propagandist and vaccine pusher, Michael Wilbon, didn't take kindly to Durant's request for common sense inside Barclays Center.
Durant rightly points out the law makes no sense. KYRIE WAS AT THE GAME SITTING IN THE ARENA. Wilbon appeals to emotion, says ppl died. How does this apply to world class athlete Kyrie Irving? It doesn't. Durant is right. It has nothing to do with health. https://t.co/TsFb5gkOds

Kevin Durant can’t even make sense out of New York City’s unwillingness to let the unvaccinated Kyrie Irving play.
Seen courtside at Barclays all weekend, but unable to play games, has lit a fire underneath the NBA community as New York City Mayor Eric Adams keeps Kyrie sidelined due to a restriction imposed on private-sector workers.
Footage of Kyrie also made the rounds on Sunday morning for the Nets’ matchup against the New York Knicks.
Irving has been granted every freedom available inside of Barclays Center, minus the ability to play for his team.
While Durant's star power could pressure Mayor Adams to let Kyrie play, the 12-time All-Star would become an NYC legend by leveraging it to have the mandates lifted for ALL workers.
