"The sports network’s star commentator chided Irving for refusing a vaccine taken by billions in an act of defiance that hurts his team ― perhaps the favorite to win the NBA title if it stays intact.

“As far as I’m concerned, the hell with you!” Smith said. “Sit him down, let him stay home, don’t pay him a dime.”


Tons of people are just totally tired of the dumbass antivaxxers.

I'm glad it's starting to crash in on these ignorant turds.

Yeah I watched that segment this morning. I like Stephen A but I chalked at least part of his rant to his normal histronics. Other than him maybe wanting to see the Nets do well, not sure why he got so worked up - he's certainly not the only NBA player in this position. I'm sure Irving knows the stakes if he remains firm in his choice.
