NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Anti-vaccine protesters rallied outside the Barclays Center Sunday in support of Kyrie Irving ahead of the team’s home opener against the Charlotte Hornets.

Several hundred protesters chanted “Let Kyrie play” and “Stand with Kyrie” and occasionally sparred with security at barricades outside the arena. Irving has been suspended by the team over his refusal to abide by New York City’s vaccine mandate to enter many indoor events, venues and businesses.
