On the 8th of October it will probably be really expensive for NBA Profi Kyrie Irving for the first time because of the Corona vaccination. The Brooklyn Nets meet in preparation on defending champion Milwaukee Bucks. And the 29-year-old basketball player will not appear to play.
Not allowed to play. The regulations in New York force him before entering a Irvings hall to submit a detection. If he does not have it, according to the Corona rules negotiated between the League and Union, according to Corona rules in the category of unvaccinated professionals and loses his right to pay in this scenario. US media have Irvings just calculated: $ 380,000. Per game.
If Irving is actually all 41 home games of the NBA season starting on 19 October for this reason, this adds up to more than $ 15 million. Officially, the vaccination status of the exceptional player born in Australia is unknown, but all evidence indicates that he is not vaccinated.
Even New York mayor Bill de Blasio made a public call: Let yourself be vaccinated, said the politician. Your fans want to see you, we all want to go back. Your teammates want you back. When starting on the title, Nets coach Steve Nash can only plan his superstar trio only Kevin Durant and James Harden as a solid size – Irving does not.
95 percent of all NBA professionals is vaccinated
For the Nets, this is a competitive disadvantage. Because the group of uncovered and of the numerous restrictions in the training everyday affected players is getting smaller. According to US media, the quota of the vaccinated players in the NBA is about 95 percent, on average, every one of the 30 NBA teams is currently only a unaffected professional. As in the NHL, which expands at the start of the season in a week with 98 to 99 percent of vaccinated players, the rules in NBA for unvaccinated players are also much more stringent outside New Yorks than for basketballs with vaccination protection.
Daily tests, a fundamental mask obligation, places far away from players in the locker room and in another room for meals as well as a banned ban – without detection, the two leagues have a long list of restrictions.
Lebron James can be vaccinated
NBA superstar LeBron James was also skeptical according to own information, but has now decided to protect. The great goal is to win the title. And that starts with health than the number one. We are pleased to know that we have given ourselves the opportunity to be available for each other, and that s what it has happened, said the 36-year-old his decision.
Andrew Wiggins by the Golden State Warriors would have missed the home games of his team, like Irving in New York for similar rules in San Francisco, but has now been vaccinated after information of his coach Steve Kerr. Bradley Beal by the Washington Wizards, on the other hand, is unvoved, as is Jonathan Isaac from the Orlando Magic around the two German brothers Moritz and Franz Wagner.
Because the universal rules in these regions of the United States are less strict than in New York and San Francisco, these professionals must probably do without the lots of the Toronto Raptors because of the Canadian quarantine requirements for unvaccinated entrants. There is also no salary. So expensive as for Irving it will probably be for no other unvaccinated player.
