Kevin Durant is putting pressure on the mayor of New York City over the bizarre vaccination policy currently in place.
Unvaccinated Nets guard Kyrie Irving is still not allowed to play home games at the Barclays Center due to the city’s private sector vaccine mandate. Despite this, city rules now permit him to attend games and sit on the bench with his teammates. Irving was even permitted to go into the locker room at halftime. The ridiculousness of that was not lost on anyone, especially Durant.
Following Sunday’s game, Durant accused New York mayor Eric Adams of looking for attention and urged Adams to to “figure this out,” citing the confusing and inconsistent nature of the city’s policies.
