Kyrie Irving has been a topic of conversation all year among NBA fans, which is nothing new. Kyrie is unvaccinated and due to the state of New York’s strict vaccine mandates, has not been able to play for the Nets in home games at the Barclays Center.
But if Brooklyn Nets billionaire owner Joe Tsai wants to start paying small fines after every home game, Kyrie could be 100 percent back for the loaded Brooklyn Nets squad. Here’s a breakdown of what the fines would look like…
- First offense: Warning.
- Second offense: $1,000 fine.
- Third offense: $2,000 fine.
- Fourth offense: $5,000 fine.
- Fifth offense and every game after: $5,000 fine.
I mean, this is literal pennies for a billionaire owner to have to shell out. Shit, sell one court side seat at the Barclays Center and you have your fine paid off for the night. Or hell, take the fines out of Kyrie’s game check.
Obviously the optics of this would cause controversy and the Nets would have to deal with some negative PR backlash… but for a billionaire owner, it would be like him buying a McChicken off the dollar menu at McDonald’s a couple times a week.
