Kyrie Irving loses an important sponsor

American playmaker Kyrie Irving, who currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets, due to a large number of missed matches in the NBA, could lose an important sponsor.

The reason for his absence from the field is that he refused to be vaccinated and so he could not play Brooklyn matches at home.

The rule in New York was that unvaccinated people could not enter sports halls, and the same rule applied to athletes.

He has played only 29 away matches this season.

Therefore, Nike could end its cooperation with Kyrie at the end of the 2022/23 season, until the contract is valid.

The cooperation between Irving and Nike has been going on since 2014, and the shoe manufacturer should deliver new shoes for the basketball player in the fall.

A basketball player is not the only one who has a similar situation.

As announced, Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic is ending his cooperation with the company UKG.
