As he finally prepares to start an NBA season normally with the Brooklyn Nets, Kyrie Irving has been talked about again on social networks following the sharing of the post of a heavily convicted American conspirator. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the leading scorer in NBA history, did not spare the 30-year-old point guard.
After spending months away from the prosecution due to his refusal to get vaccinated, Kyrie Irving will be able to start this new season of NBA. And as always, the leader of the Brooklyn Nets does not make people talk about him only for his basketball. Irving got noticed by sharing on instagram a video ofAlex Jonesa recently convicted American conspirator.
“We could have left it to simmer alone in its own gelatinous ignorance”
If the net did not react, Kareem Abdul Jabbarthe best scorer in the history of the NBA, did not remain silent in the face of the actions of Kyrie Irving. ” There is a certain irony that this news comes just after the previous one on the bad education of American youth (by the historical manipulations of Ron DeSantis and Tucker Carlson, editor’s note). Because Kyrie Irving’s thought process is an example of what happens when the education system fails. Last October, I wrote an article about Kyrie Irving’s refusal to get a Covid-19 shot (“Should we just leave Kyrie alone?”) and why this rash choice was destructive for the country and especially for the black community, where he would be an influential role model. The facts have shown this accusation to be true. Irving didn’t care. He continued to promote his anti-vax sentiments – regardless of the cost in life and health to others – defining himself as a “martyr”. No kidding. We could have left it to simmer alone in its own gelatinous ignorance “, he dropped in remarks relayed by Basketball USA.
Let’s make sure our kids have the right kind of role models. Kyrie Irving should reconsider his behavior because young people look up to him. pic.twitter.com/FyEQmE14Om

“Irving is back and he’s even more destructive, callous and just plain dumber than before”
” The rich and famous always get away with saying stupid things because their money insulates them from the consequences. Yes, Mr. Irving, the Earth has never been so flat. But now Irving is back and he’s even more destructive, callous, and just plain dumber than before. He decided it would be a good idea to post a 2002 music video of Infowars founder Alex Jones. Yeah, the guy who was tried for denying the Sandy Hook shootings and admitted in open court that he’s an entertainer and his on-screen persona is just a character (who takes millions from unaware viewers). Alex Jones is one of the most despicable human beings around and associating with him means you share his stench. Kyrie Irving would be considered a comedic jester if it weren’t for this influence on young people who look up to athletes.
When I look at some of the athletes who have used their status to truly improve society – Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Muhammad Ali, Bill Russell, Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe and many more – it becomes clear just how tarnished Irving has been. the reputation of all athletes who strive to be seen as something other than stupid sportsmen. Irving doesn’t seem to have the ability to change, but we do have the ability to continue to struggle with his destructive behavior. One way to do that, beyond just shaking your head and sending mocking tweets, is to write to his sponsors and tell them to dump Irving — threatening to dump them. Nike probably decided not to renew his contract after this season. But it’s still sponsored by Pepsi and 2K Sports. (Don’t feel bad for Irving: his career earnings at the end of the 2022/23 season will be $230 million. That buys a lot of people who tell you yes to everything),” adds Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
