After Eric Adams won hs election and became New York City mayor-elect some wondered whether his new administration would change the current COVID-19 mandates that are affecting Irving and the Brooklyn Nets.
Adams said in an interview with CNN on Friday that the city will not be changing the COVID-19 vaccination rules that are currently in place.
"New York City is not going to change their rule," Adams said. "And again, it is up to the NBA and Kyrie to come to a full understanding on how to keep him on the Nets and to continue to look at all of our athletes that are coming here. Again, I think the NBA and Kyrie [are] going to come to a conclusion on this."
"I'm a Nets fan ... and I love Kyrie," Adams continued. "I think he's a piece that we need for a championship. ... So I believe that it's up to the NBA and Kyrie to come to an understanding on how they want to get through this, and I believe they can come to a resolution."
