NYC Mayor "Can't Wait" To Remove Vaccine Mandates Soon; Kyrie Irving Could Be Full-Time Player

New York City Mayor Eric Adams was asked about the possibility of removing vaccine mandates in the weeks ahead, and his response was pretty emphatic: "Yes, and I can't wait to get it done." This is promising news for the Brooklyn Nets and Kyrie Irving. The unvaccinated point guard has been unable to play in the team's home games due to the mandates, but that could now change in the near future. 

"I look forward to the next few weeks going through a real transformation... We are moving in the right direction, we're going to do it the safe way. Because all these experts will tell you one thing: We can't close down again. We. Can't. Close. Down. Again." 

Irving has played only 14 games this season, after being reinstated in the new year. The Nets are only 4-10 in those games. However, they were playing with a, shall we say, disinterested James Harden through much of that period, as his displeasure with Kyrie was clearly visible, as one report said he looked at Irving like he had three heads.  

In Irving's last three games, he's averaged 29 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. 

And if things continue to stay under control in NYC with regards to the pandemic, it appears that Kyrie Irving will be a full-time player again within the next few weeks.
