Kyrie Irving’s recent decision to essentially remove himself from the Brooklyn Nets’ 2020-21 NBA campaign has stirred up a wide array of emotions.

Irving’s troubles began when he firmly announced that he would not get the COVID-19 vaccination.

New York mandates all pro athletes who practice or play indoors to show proof of at least one vaccine shot. As a result of Irving’s refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccination, he cannot participate in Nets home games.

This has seemingly led to the deterioration of Irving’s relationship with both one-time good friend Kevin Durant and the Nets’ front office as a whole.

Irving has undergone some big changes in his life over the past year, and many have taken to wondering whether those changes have influenced his decision-making in this particular case.

The first change Irving experienced was his move to convert to a different religion. The second was welcoming a baby with and getting engaged to girlfriend Marlene Wilkerson.

Wilkerson is an influencer and blogger who boasts more than 400,000 followers on Instagram and nearly 800,000 followers on YouTube.

With everyone from James Harden to Karl-Anthony Towns to Chris Paul offering their blunt and unfiltered thoughts on Irving’s decision to remain unvaccinated, many have wondered where Wilkerson stands on all this.

While Wilkerson has yet to publicly delve into Irving’s COVID-19 vaccine position, some of her YouTube videos do seem to center around the concept of “natural” health.

How much do Wilkerson’s beliefs influence Wilkerson, and vice versa? It’s impossible to know for certain.

One way or another, this Irving situation has yet to reach a true conclusion. Either he will return to play basketball or he will be forced out of the league forever. It’s unclear which scenario is likelier at this point.

In the meantime, Irving remains defiant. His recent 4-word message to fans and haters alike signifies that fairly clearly.

How will this story ultimately end? Time will tell.
