[Reuters]–American Professional Basketball Association (NBA), Nets’ Kyrie Irving is unable to join the team due to opposition to vaccination with the new coronavirus, so fans are asked to allow play Conducted the required protests.

Participants in the protest climbed a barricade at the Barclays Center in Nets’ home arena on the 24th and approached the entrance. The video footage spread online showed a person shouting “Let Kylie play” and a person holding a sign saying “Fight with Kylie”.

The guards temporarily stopped the fans from entering, but the match started on time. The Nets lost to the Hornets 95-111 in their first home game this season.

The NBA does not require athletes to be vaccinated, but New York State’s new Corona rules prevent Irving from competing in home games. Nets says he will not allow him to participate in practice or play until Irving is available full-time.
