Kyrie Irving

Athletes being dumb isn't a new thing. It has been the main point of contention for sports. With social media and athletes having a giant bullhorn whenever they feel like, without the filter that the media could provide them, they're going to feel more embolden and entitled to share whatever crosses from one ear to the other without much of a rest stop between the two They feel like they are the great orators of our time as well as the great entertainers because of their large following.

Almost everyone is going to make a face when they ask for sympathy for their brain droppings.

The NBA training camps open this week and all the teams are having their media days. This means that every star gets a turn, which means that the o-zone is going to be filled with more people. They want you to feel bad for him.

“I gave up four years, 100-and-something million deciding to be unvaccinated and that was the decision,” said Irving at Nets media day on Monday. “[Get this] contract, get vaccinated or be unvaccinated and there’s a level of uncertainty of your future, whether you’re going to be in this league, whether you’re going to be on this team, so I had to deal with that real-life circumstance of losing my job for this decision.”

We don't pay attention to what athletes make. It's what the job pays, pro-labor, they have a shorter earnings window than just about anyone, and a bad step could ruin everything. The Eric Andre shooting was a funny one.

The problem with people like Irving is that they don't admit a mistake or that it's possible. Irving thinks that the anti-science, anti-society crowd is like Che Guevara or Jesus for them, because they don't find any one of them on a street corner. They already have what they want because the rest of us can't. The toddler style of arguing.

Go for a portable power bank, a magnetic wireless battery, or even a solar generator. These are in the top 10. The power bank can be used to charge up to four devices at the same time. It's great to have your phone, laptop, and Nintendo Switch with you when you travel.

Irving will never come out again unless he completes his journey. He will just crawl back up there. Irving will probably get his money from someone after this season, just like every other anti-mask, "cancel culture" person, because of the things he's decrying to his following.

Again, the only thing ever asked of Irving was to do something incredibly simple to help protect others, and it wasn't that his views were more important to him, but that he got to bellow them from his platform and have a few people applaud him for It was the attention he wanted, and still wants, and now that the tide didn't turn in his favor, he's going to try the sympathy route.

He can't imagine anyone not feeling sorry for him as his bubble is so thick that he doesn't know what to think.

The world works in an echo chamber. He will still think he is right because some GM will have a checkbook ready.
