In a recent interview with FirstSportz, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban revealed that having Kyrie Irving on the team during the COVID-19 pandemic would have been a tough situation.
Cuban shared his thoughts on the possibility of acquiring Irving, who has been known for making controversial statements and decisions during the pandemic. “I don’t think I’d agree with him on a lot of things, but I think he’d be an interesting player,” Cuban said.
Irving has been at the center of attention for his stance on the COVID-19 vaccine and his willingness to speak out against the NBA’s health and safety protocols. His refusal to comply with the league’s vaccination requirements led to a lengthy absence from the Brooklyn Nets earlier this season.
Cuban’s comments come at a time when the NBA is facing increasing scrutiny over its handling of the pandemic and the vaccination status of its players. The league has implemented strict rules and regulations to ensure the safety of its players and staff, but it has faced resistance from some high-profile players like Irving.
Despite Cuban’s reservations about Irving, it’s clear that the Mavericks owner is keeping a close eye on the player market and is open to making moves to improve his team. Whether or not Irving will end up on the Mavericks remains to be seen, but Cuban’s comments certainly add a new layer of intrigue to the ongoing NBA drama.
