After NBA‘s Top 75 Greatest Players List was revealed, fans and athletes alike took to social media to voice their opinions on who was snubbed.

One of the most notable snubs from the list was Kyrie Irving, a seven-time all-star and NBA Champion who has often been equated as one of the best ball-handlers in the history of basketball. With his successes, stats and talent, his resume make the Brooklyn Nets guard a perfect contender for the list. Fans have thought it to be disrespectful that Irving was left off of the top 75 and some even did their own sleuthing.

Some fans have noticed that there have been some deleted articles from the NBA that suggested that Irving was initially included in the list. Twitter users also pointed out that the NBA YouTube channel originally posted a highlight reel that showcased Irving. Some fans have suggested that the NBA remove Irving from the list due to his current stance on taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver recently spoke about Irving’s status in the NBA and said, “I hope that Kyrie, despite how strongly he feels about the vaccination, ultimately decides to get vacced because I’d love to see him play basketball this season & I’d love to see the Nets have their full complement of players on the floor.”

Take a look at what some fans on Twitter have dug up.
