ESPN Analyst Stephen A Smith uploads a video on Twitter, says he would react to Kyrie Irving and his Instagram Live on First Take
There has been a lot of uncertainty around Kyrie Irving and his future in recent times. Due to his vaccination status and the guidelines issued by the city of New York, he cannot play home games. Initially, it was thought that Kyrie would become a part-time player, and play road games. However, all that changed when GM Sean Marks announced Kyrie wouldn’t participate in any team activity unless he is vaccinated.
The questions about Kyrie’s future grew again, now focusing on what it holds. Kyrie took it to his Instagram Live to answer a few.

From his statement, it is clear that Kyrie isn’t about to retire or give up. However, the dilemma at hand has only one solution, and Irving doesn’t want to take it.
