Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets posted a photo to Instagram on Thursday, and his post can be seen embedded below from his account.
Irving is a seven-time All-Star, but has yet to play in a game for the Nets this season.
He is not eligible to play in their home games at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, because of the New York City vaccine mandate.
The Nets have been able to be one of the best teams in the NBA even without their star guard, because they still have James Harden and Kevin Durant running the show.
In their first 23 games they are 16-7, which is the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Irving has career averages of 22.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game in ten seasons.
