LAMM AT LARGE: Kyrie Can Finally Play in Brooklyn

todayMarch 31, 2022

Background
I’m thrilled Nets guard Kyrie Irving and other unvaccinated New York athletes will be allowed to play in New York. It was ridiculous, for example, that Irving couldn’t play home games in Brooklyn, but he and Nets fans were allowed to pack the Barclay Arena unmasked and some unvaccinated.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams freed the city’s athletes and entertainers of vaccination requirements but stopped there to the puzzlement of anyone with a brain. Cops, firefighters, doctors, nurses, teachers, first-responders, trash collectors and other essential workers were fired or laid off without pay unless took they needle.
Even avid sports fans have to see this as discrimination, favoring the rich and famous over all others. Adams said it was about economics.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have the essential workers over scoring guards and slugging outfielders.,

LAMM AT LARGE: Nikola Jokic Goes Back to Back

We live in an age when the NBA is loaded with giants who run like gazelles and jump like tigers. Then there's Nikola Jokic. The  Nugget's 6-11, 284-pound center may be the league's most unathletic player. He lopes up and down the court and on a good day may be able […]
