Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving has confirmed that he is not retiring and that he is unvaccinated.
Irving made the announcements on Instagram Live following speculation about his future.
"You think I really just want to just give up my job? You think I really just want to sit at home and not go after the things with my teammates," Kyrie Irving.
It was Irving's first time speaking since the Nets announced he would not practice with the team till he could fully participate.
Irving is currently only able to play home games for the Brooklyn Nets due to New York City's COVID-19 protocols.
Irving has refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine despite it being a requirement for athletes in New York.
The Nets open the regular season on Oct 19 against the defending NBA champions, the Milwaukee Bucks.
