Kyrie Irving posts yet another cryptic message amid COVID-19 vaccine brouhaha

Kyrie Irving, Nets, Andrew Wiggins, COVID-19

Another day, another non-vaccination for Kyrie Irving.

The Brooklyn Nets star has become the unofficial poster boy for NBA superstars who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19 despite repeated pleas from peers and league officials.

While Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins finally relented recently, Irving continues to stand by his controversial stance. He said in a virtual chat with reporters during Nets’ Media Day that he will reveal his status soon, but so far, it has been nothing but crickets.

But his latest post on Twitter could be interpreted that he’s still not willing to follow the norm. The Nets guard posted an image of Aang, the main character of the anime Avatar: The Last Airbender, and included a seemingly cryptic caption, “Step into your power.”

OR MAYBE Irving is just excited for the live-action version of the popular series on Netflix. The release date, however, hasn’t been announced. OR MAYBE Irving just rewatched the anime version, that’s why he got inspired to tweet. Whatever it is, the Nets must be worried.

The Nets can’t play Irving during home games and in road games against the Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks due to local vaccination protocols. The hitch will surely affect the team’s chances, especially during the NBA Playoffs.

What if the Nets play a Game 7 on the road against the Warriors or the Knicks? Will Irving suddenly vaccinate himself with the theme song of Avatar: The Last Airbender blasting in the background?

We need answers, Kyrie Irving!
