Abstract. We prove that there does not exist a nontrivial quantization of the Poisson algebra of the symplectic manifold $S^2$ which is irreducible on the subalgebra generated by the components $\{S_1,S_2,S_3\}$ of the spin vector. We also show that there does not exist such a quantization of the Poisson subalgebra $\p$ consisting of polynomials in $\{S_1,S_2,S_3\}$. Furthermore, we show that the maximal Poisson subalgebra of $\cal P$ containing $\{1,S_1,S_2,S_3\}$ that can be so quantized is just that generated by $\{1,S_1,S_2,S_3\}$.
