    I would think that the major sports leagues would have offered the vaccines in-house as was done at my job.

    • Kareem Abdul Jabbar thinks unvaccinated NBA players should be given an ultimatum: get vaccinated or find another job. I wish a reporter would press Lebron James for his opinion on all this because a few months ago he duck the question when he was asked if he was vaccinated.

        Agreed! James has an opinion on every other subject on earth and the press laps it up like nectar starved hummingbirds. They are terrified of being blacklisted by him, so they only ask softball questions. Real journalism died some time ago.

          As the beginning of the season gets closer I think he'll get pressed harder on this especially if the NBA asks him to appear in a PSA about getting vaccinated.

            And won't his status be exposed when he's mysteriously sitting out games in states/cities that mandate vaccines?

              Lebron said within the last few days that he's been vaccinated but he feels it is a personal decision to choose whether the be vaccinated or not.

                Loud, proud and wrong took center stage on podiums across the NBA, with star players gladly spouting off misinformation and nonsense reminiscent of presidential campaigns of recent vintage.

                  He's not the first person to use the phrase "it's a personal decision", but what does that mean? Everyone already knows that the government can't force you to get vaccinated.

                    I assume it means that he's not going to state that the players should all get their vaccines.

                          Then he should just say that rather than using opaque language. Another common phrase you hear regarding the vaccine is "I'm still doing research" which really means I'm an anti-vaxxer but I'm ashamed to admit it.

                          • The NBA is back! Unfortunately, so are its Covid-19 skeptics. - CNNPolitics

                            The best response to anti-vaxxer players came from Orlando Magic center Robin Lopez, who suggested that he wasn't sure that the Milwaukee Bucks, the team which his twin brother, Brook, plays on, had actually won the NBA championship last year because he hadn't seen it in person. He then suggested he would "do his own research" to arrive at a conclusion.

                              Good point. I about spit out my coffee when I read that Nikki Minaj was going to do more research into the vaccine before making up her mind. And in the background, I swear I could hear Bon Scott singing "Big Balls"..........
