Nets’ Kyrie Irving breaks silence on NBA 75 snub: ‘Leave it to the conspiracy theorists’ – CBSSports.com

Earlier this season, the NBA released their list of the 75 best players in the history of the league and Brooklyn Nets star guard Kyrie Irving was left off the list. Following the Nets’ 110-98 win over the New York Knicks on Wednesday, star guard Kyrie Irving was asked about being snubbed.Irving responded by saying that he would leave his snub “to the conspiracy theorists.””I think I’ll leave it to the conspiracy theorists. I think I was on the list… but I guess I’m not,” Irving said. “Maybe I’ll just wait 10 years, 20 years from now… hopefully with a few championships under my belt.” He might actually have a point about the conspiracy. A Twitter user pointed out that the NBA’s official channel on YouTube briefly published a video about Irving making the NBA 75. It was quickly taken down from the site, though: The NBA accidentally briefly had the video posted pic.twitter.com/e0PJ64xDNE— Greg Ehrenberg (@gehrenbergdfs) April 7, 2022 Irving, who is not vaccinated against COVID-19, has been the subject of public scrutiny throughout the 2021-22 season because he couldn’t play in the team’s home games. New York City previously had a COVID-19 vaccination mandate, but on March 23, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced that the city would be altering its rules, which has allowed Irving to begin playing in home games at the Barclays Center. Irving scored 24 points on 9-of-26 shooting while also dishing out seven assists and grabbed seven rebounds against the Knicks. The Nets ended up outscoring the Knicks, 60-31, and came back to earn the victory.
