    Well he is crazy. This isn't his first adventure into weirdo land. I understand his position but this "I want to be the voice of the voiceless" while remaining silent is classic crazy kyrie.

    He can certainly afford it. The bigger issue will be if this hurts his next contract.

    Can you imagine being able to piss away that kind of money? I can't.

    I think Kyrie cares about Kyrie. He certainly isn't concerned with letting down his teammates.

    Nothing rare about it I dont think. Millions of people are taking the same stance on violations of the most basic civil liberties. He just happens to be famous and has more money. My true admiration goes to the family making 75k per year and telling their employer to shove it up their ass. Either way there are things more important than money.

    among athletes, yeah it's damn rare. Not too many guys (well just the 1 in the NBA) who have been willing to tell their employer to shove it up their ass if it means they lose a penny.

    My guess is that Kyrie is just trying to wait the league out. He has enough money to do it. As per your prior point Seen, regular folks have a much harder decision if they do something similar. Pretty easy for Kyrie to say "ok, just pay me 16 million a year to sit at home this year". Lot harder for someone to go from 50k to 0 because they don't want to get vaccinated.

    Those guys ain't giving up their money. 2 guys risked losing actual money, Wiggins and Kyrie. That's the whole list. Wiggins decided he wasn't really all that committed to the issue after all when he busted out a calculator. Kyrie, for now, is sticking with his belief. If it was 10% then isn't it weird it's not 10% of the guys on teams where their cash is on the line.

    Why debate the number when you can utilize google? Its reported 10 percent.

    It's not 10 percent on the teams where not being vaccinated means you can't play or therefore you won't get paid (Nets, Knicks and Warriors). Beal and Kuzma aren't vaccinated on the Wizards for instance. It costs them nothing to hold that position due to personal belief. Andrew Wiggins - it would have cost him 18 mill. So that personal belief all of a sudden wasn't as important when given the option of a 50% pay cut. I'd be willing to bet that if Washington creates a similar vaccination policy that the Wizards will go from 13% of their team not being vaccinated to 0% really quickly.

    Ah I see what you're saying. Well, I'd think there would be money lost in any city there's a mandate for any player unvaxed wouldn't there be?
