Every year we have a saga in the NBA league, and this year the focus is on two players Ben Simmons and Kyrie Irving.
David Aldridge, Sam Amick, and John Hollinger analyzed the situation of Ben Simmons, Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard, and Bradill Bill for “Athletic”.
What attracted the most attention was their knowledge related to the trades of these great stars, especially Ben Simmons from the Philadelphia 76ers and Kyrie Irving from the Brooklyn Nets.
“It’s not uncommon for a team to have a conflict and create a million scenarios in public, but let’s just look at what’s happening now in the NBA. Everything with Kyrie is kind of fresh, everyone knows he hasn’t been vaccinated and will miss some games and run out a lot of money because he doesn’t want to change his mind. What should the Nets do? Is it possible for them to make a profit? “Sam Amick began the story.
Unvaccinated players in the NBA will not be paid for home games they miss.
They say about 90 percent of NBA players have been vaccinated, but there are still people like Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets, Michael Porter Jr. of the Denver Nuggets, Andrew Wiggins of the Golden State Warriors, Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards, Jonathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic they are refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.
The NBA League and the Players’ Union (NBPA) have reached an agreement that players who do not follow the guidelines of local authorities and are not vaccinated will not be able to play games, and therefore will not be paid.
For example, Kyrie Irving could lose 381,000 dollars per game and we will see what everything will look like when the season officially starts on October 19, 2021.
“That’s on Kyrie, and that’s his personal decision,” BrooklynNets forward Kevin Durant said. “What he does is not on us to speculate what may be happening, but we trust in Kyrie. I expect us to have our whole team at some point.”

Kyrie Irving Responds to Vaccination Status, Physical Absence at Media Day & Brooklyn Nets Season
How the 82-game season will affect the Brooklyn Nets tandem Kevin Durant-James Harden explained to ESPN in the article.
We are preparing for the start of the new NBA season, and therefore we have a number of questions, such as the one about Ben Simmons or the Brooklyn Nets, which ESPN dealt with.
How will the 82 games season affect the James Harden-Kevin Durant tandem, how productive will the two of them be and what can we expect from them?
It is doubtful that Harden and Durant will be able to have statistically better numbers, but it will be interesting to see how the two of them will play together because they had a lot of problems with injuries last season.
Despite predicting that American NBA player Klay Thompson could return to the basketball courts as early as the beginning of the new NBA season, that will not happen.
Along with Steph Curry, the best player of Golden State, one of the best shooters in the league and a five-time All-Star player, could return only during 2022, said the general manager of the Golden State Warriors from San Francisco, Bob Myers.
