ANALYSIS: Irving's vaccination status was one of the dominant topics in yesterday's media day events. The star guard asked reporters to "repect my privacy" and did not comment on if he was vaccinated. Irving, Bradley Beal and Andrew Wiggins are among the NBA players believed to be unvaccinated at this time. If Irving does not get the COVID-19 vaccine, he would miss all of Brooklyn's home games, per a New York City mandate.
