NYC Mayor Eric Adams Shades Kyrie Irving

New York City Mayor Eric Adams responded to the news Brooklyn Nets player Kyrie Irving had been traded to the Dallas Mavericks.

Kyrie was forced to sit out home games last season due to the mayor’s vaccine mandate.

During an interview with morning host Pat Kiernan on NY1, Adams was asked: “If City Hall was a professional sports team, and you had an employee who gave you as much drama as Kyrie Irving is giving to the Brooklyn Nets, what would you do if that employee said, ‘Could you trade me’ — would you do the trade?”

Adams responded: “I will find the team that beats us the most and send him to that team, because then we’ll start beating that team. It’s about synergy in energy. No matter how much talent you have, your ability to interact with your colleagues is more important. One player can bring down the synergy of the team. And so I would send him to the team that beats us the most so we can start winning better,” he told reporters.
