Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Insists ‘There Is No Room’ for NBA Players Who Refuse to Get Vaccinated

“The NBA should insist that all players and staff are vaccinated or remove them from the team,” the NBA legend told Rolling Stone. “There is no room for players who are willing to risk the health and lives of their teammates, the staff and the fans simply because they are unable to grasp the seriousness of the situation or do the necessary research. What I find especially disingenuous about the vaccine deniers is their arrogance at disbelieving immunology and other medical experts. Yet, if their child was sick or they themselves needed emergency medical treatment, how quickly would they do exactly what those same experts told them to do?”

I meannnnnnnn, he ain’t lying. There have been reports for months about emergency rooms being packed with unvaccinated people; the same unvaccinated people who could potentially avoid going to the hospital entirely if they just took the damn vaccine instead of receiving emergency medical care from the same medical experts they claimed they didn’t believe in the first fucking place. During a recent press conference, President Biden also claimed that unvaccinated Americans are hindering economic growth, costing our country jobs, and putting an unnecessary strain on our healthcare system.
