Irving has support from one of the biggest names in sports: boxing legend Floyd Mayweather who Forbes named the highest-paid athlete in the 2010s by cashing in over $900 million throughout the decade. Mayweather posted roughly a minute-long video on social media Monday night backing Irving's stance on not getting vaccinated -- writing in his Instagram caption "I am Pro Choice."
The Kyrie Irving saga is still going on in the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets superstar is still unvaccinated, and the team isn't changing its stance on what they will do with the player. Even after a rough start to the season, the front office isn't making new decisions on the Kyrie case, but the player receives more support every day.

Entering the 2021-22 NBA season as heavy favorites to win the NBA Finals, the Brooklyn Nets have started the year 2-2 and have not looked like the dominant team everyone anticipated them being. Kevin Durant has looked like the MVP-caliber player he is, but James Harden has struggled and not having Kyrie Irving has left this team with a hole to fill.
Defense, yes, defense, came to the Nets rescue vs. the rejuvenated Wizards. The Nets changed up some schemes and Washington’s backcourt faded. Spencer Dinwiddie, hoping to make a big impression, finished with a measly 10 points and Bradley Beal an underwhelming 19. And so the Nets won easily, 104-90, going up by as much as 25 early and never relinquishing the lead in the second half.

Nine first-week NBA storylines not involving Kyrie Irving or Ben Simmons: Rookies dazzle; Giannis’ new routine
The 2021-22 NBA season began last Tuesday, but most of the headlines around the league have very little to do with basketball. Whether it’s protests at Barclays Center about Kyrie Irving’s vaccine status, the ongoing saga with Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers or infighting within the Los Angeles Lakers, the off-court drama has overshadowed the fact that some great NBA games and tremendous individual performances have been taking place.
