NBA players NOT required to get Vaccine…

NBA players will not be mandated to get vaccinated against COVID-19, league sources tell ESPN.

 

The NBA and NBPA continue to negotiate aspects of COVID-related protocols and procedures for the upcoming 2021-22 campaign, but the NBPA has refused to budge on its demand that players not be required to take the vaccine, sources say, and any proposal that mandates vaccination remains a “non-starter.”

 

Roughly 85% of players are vaccinated, a league spokesman recently said, and, in a preliminary memo obtained by ESPN in early September, the league outlined a set of strict protocols for unvaccinated players.

 

Such protocols include having lockers far from vaccinated teammates and having to eat, fly and ride buses in different sections. These protocols are not final and are still subject to talks with the NBPA.

 

The NBA informed teams in early September that new laws in both New York and San Francisco regarding vaccine requirements will be enforced for members of the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors — including for their teams’ players — unless there is an approved medical or religious exemption, according to a memo obtained by ESPN.

 

In late August, the NBA informed teams that personnel under team control who worked within 15 feet of players or officials during games would be required to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 1.

How stupid do NFL players feel right now?

Also how is the vax going to affect sports betting? I need to know what players are walking around with their organs filling with self manufactured spike proteins and getting brain fog. Thats going to affect their performance.

China gave Joe instructions for the exemption so they don’t lose any players for one of their favorite sports.

NBA players are 85% vaccinated, according to who? Sea hag Pelosi says nearly 100% of congressional Democrats are vaccinated but members of congress are exempt… just like NBA players. Why would that be? It’s pretty obvious both entities are lying their asses off about vaccination numbers. Let’s see some proof. We hear numbers all the time yet no one provides a shred of documentation. Kinda’ like Russian collusion. All kinds of evidence (supposedly) but none that they can actually produce.

I just read that 70 people a day are dying from the vaccine itself. I guess that is the price to pay during a political pandemic.

You are correct. Also, many of the so-called vaccinated that are getting covid and dying are in fact dying from the vaccine. Take that nasty stuff at your own peril.

Let’s see, we have Congress being exempt, federal postal carriers exempt, the NBA exempt, millions of illegals exempt. This has absolutely nothing to do with healthcare. The lawsuits should be a cakewalk.
