Kyrie Irving and Brooklyn Nets
In July 2019, the Nets signed Irving in free agency. On his debut, he scored 50 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves. But he played just 20 games for the Nets in his first season owing to a shoulder injury. In the 2021-22 season, he missed the first half of the season due to his insistence on not getting vaccinated against Covid-19.
He eventually started playing in the away games in cities which didn't have a vaccine mandate. After New York City also lifted its vaccine requirements, Irving made his season debut at the Barclays Center. However, the Nets were swept in the First Round of the Playoffs by his former employers, Boston Celtics.
There were many reports of Irving wanting out of Brooklyn by declining his player option for the final year of the contract. However, Irving opted into the contract, returning to the Nets for the 2022-23 season.
