There were many COVID martyrs—brave warriors who challenged the regime’s twisted COVID and vaccine narratives and ultimately lost their jobs and reputations and were “canceled” by the vaccine-obsessed left-wing mob. Many of these martyrs were athletes who refused to take the jab and found themselves publicly ostracized, banned, or even fired. Tennis champ Novak Djokovic famously declared he would rather miss out on future tennis trophies than be forced to get a COVID vaccine, and he stuck to his guns, even when the media and the mob threw everything they had at him. In the end, he had the last laugh when he won the US Open. Another one of those rebel athletes, NBA player Kyrie Irving, proclaimed that his decision not to take the COVID jab was bigger than basketball—it was about his life. Right on cue, he was demonized for making an informed—and, as it turns out, smart—decision for himself.

Well, now, Kyrie Irving’s story has come full circle. Just two years after the NBA forced him to sit out for refusing the beastly jab, he’s making a triumphant return to the finals.

His return has reignited discussions about the vaccine and the left’s relentless cancel culture.

The New York Post:

Irving’s time with the Nets was mostly a flop, just one series victory in parts of four seasons there. He missed nearly the entire 2022 home schedule after his refusal to get vaccinated.

The Nets also suspended him when he was unwilling to “unequivocally say” he didn’t have antisemitic beliefs after posting a controversial movie link on Twitter.

The team moved him to the Mavericks in February of 2023, and this year, he has excelled, forming a potent 1-2 punch with Luka Doncic. This postseason, he is averaging 22.8 points, 5.2 assists and shooting 42.1 from 3-point range, performing at his best with everything on the line.

Now, he is going back to Boston as the enemy. All eyes will be on him and how he deals with the nonstop jeers.

And now, the apologies are starting to dribble in.

One of the first apologies rolled in from legendary sports anchor Stephen A. Smith. Too little, too late?


Stephen A. Smith has issued a public apology to Kyrie Irving for prior remarks critiquing the NBA star’s professional and personal conduct in recent years.

On Wednesday (May 29), the sports pundit dedicated a segment of his Stephen A. Smith Show to express his regret over addressing incidents involving Irving in a such a fervent tone. Smith’s issues with Irving’s behavior included the NBA champion’s refusal to be vaccinated amid the COVID-19 pandemic and him missing multiple games for reasons unrelated to injury.

“Kyrie Irving obviously has gone through so much,” the Queens native said of Irving’s string of controversies in recent years. “You look at those situations, you just found yourself saying, ‘Damn, this is a bad situation. It’s really bad,’ he added. “And Kyrie’s name was written all over it, and then he lost the sneaker deal and all he had was basketball.”

Stephen A. credited fellow sports analyst and close friend Kenny Smith with helping him see the error in approach while addressing news concerning Irving on ESPN First Take and elsewhere, as he was accused of being overly judgmental of the former No. 1 overall draft pick.

“It wasn’t until Kenny Smith placed that call to me that I had to look at myself differently,” the New York Times Bestseller admitted. “He reminded me of the numerous people that raised Kyrie, who also influenced me. When I talked about Kyrie in the fashion that I did, it wasn’t just a reflection on him, but also on them. When I looked at it that way, it gave me cause to pause.”

He continued to take accountability for his missteps regarding Irving, adding, “I feel the way that I feel because I pride myself in being man enough to acknowledge when I’m wrong. If I think I’m wrong because, I think it’s rare, but I was wrong, and for Kenny Smith to tell me that, it hit home in a big way because we go back more than 30 years.”

Sure, the apology to Kyrie was great, but what about the apology to the American people? That’s exactly what Jason Whitlock is wondering and calling out Stephen Smith for.

There’s no doubt about it—the American people who stood firm against the vaccine madness deserve far more than a mere “apology” from the tyrants responsible. They are owed reparations for losing their livelihoods and missing out on funerals, weddings, births, and all the significant moments in life that should never have been stripped away simply because they refused to inject an untested substance into their bodies. Now, with everything we know, it’s clear those who resisted were not the kooks or the dangerous ones—they were the wise ones, making well-informed decisions not based on fear or government propaganda. An apology isn’t enough. Only a total teardown of our current system and a rebuild focused on what’s best for the people can begin to correct this profound injustice against humanity.
