Michael Jordan Is in Favor of NBA’s Covid Protocol, Hopes Stars Such as Kyrie Irving Acquiesce

Michael Jordan, owner of the Charlotte Hornets, is urging all NBA players to follow league protocol and get vaccinated prior to the upcoming season.

While players such as Brooklyn’s Kyrie Irving are likely to miss regular season games due to being unvaccinated, Jordan told NBC’s “Today Show’’ Monday that he is in agreement with the league’s Covid-19 mandates.

“I am in total unison with the league,’’ the six-time NBA champion told the show. “And I think everybody’s been speaking about the vaccinations, and, you know, I’m a firm believer in science. I’m gonna stick with that, and, hopefully, everybody abides by whatever the league sets as rules. I think once everybody buys in, we’re going to be fine.’’

The Net’s Irving failed to travel with the Nets to Philadelphia on Monday, missing his first road game of the preseason, and will not be able to take the floor at Barclays Center or Madison Square Garden until he is vaccinated. As it stands, he would be able to play in Brooklyn’s season opener later this month in Milwaukee.

“We’re just trying to navigate this thing,’’ Nets coach Steve Nash told reporters before Monday’s game. “We don’t really know what’s going to happen tomorrow. We’re just trying to take our time to figure out what everything means.’’

Irving, a 7-time all-star, averaged 26.9 points per game last season for the Nets.
