NBA DraftKings Lineup PIcks daily fantasy basketball dfs cheat sheet tonight Thursday May 13 with Karl-Anthony Towns

Karl Anthony Towns knows  about the devastating effects COVID-19 can have, his mother died from it in December of last year.

When asked about his thoughts on Brooklyn Nets player Kyrie Irving, who will not be allowed to play for the team until he is fully vaccinated, Towns did not push back against Irving’s choice not to receive a COVID shot as of yet.

“I’m obviously a strong believer in the vaccine,” Towns told NJ.com. “I’ve been through so much and it would be kind of contradictory to not be on the pro-vaccine side.”

Towns added:

“But what I will say is that I believe in choice and I like to give people their choice and I have no problem with people having their choice.”

The Big Kat seemed to take issue with how Irving has handled the controversy around his vaccination status.

“They make their own decisions on their own bodies and their own families. I have no ill will towards that,” Towns told the outlet. “The only thing I would say is just don’t give me a bull—- excuse why [you don’t get the vaccine]… You don’t want to do it, that’s your choice.”

Towns and the Timberwolves play against the Nets, who will be without Irving, on Thursday at Barclays.

Kyrie clearly hasn’t lost anyone from COVID, or he’d probably feel a lot differently about the vaccine.
