NBA Will Not Require Players to Get Covid-19 Jab But Refs and Staff Must

GP: According to inside sources, ESPN has reported that the woke warriors at the NBA will not be requiring players to be vaccinated against Covid-19. However, the league office will still be mandating that referees and the majority of staff members – including coaches and trainers – are fully vaccinated against the virus. 

The league-wide vaccination of all players would have to be agreed upon in negotiations with the NBA Players Association(NBPA), but the two sides have not been able to come to terms. The League continues to push for mandatory jabs but the NBPA calls the issue a “non-starter” and refuses to budge. more

  1. Are they still playing that game? I don’t know, since I never watch it.

    Do what you wanna do, bra.

    I don’t really care

  2. I kind of agree with this one.

    I would not want to be near most of those assholes without Kevlar & breathing protection with the AIDS, drugs, STD’s, & whatever Virus fucks up their mental capacity.

  3. Well, that sounds “equitable”. Now I think I know where the monoclonal antibody treatments are headed: “Urban” areas in blue states.

  4. I’m on the player’s side, but the hypocrisy of making referees and office staff get the jab but not players just gives lie to how necessary any of this is.

    – – – Juuuuuuust following the science… right!

    Kcir – have you ever seen Dennis Rodman? One of the skeeviest people on the face of the planet!!

  6. So am I supposed to believe that this virus can tell the difference between a player and a referee, and can alter its infectiousness accordingly? That’s one hell of a bug! #followthescience [/sarc]

  7. As we discuss all of this, remember that the mandate says “Vaccinated OR tested weekly”. I have a feeling that one of those options will be going away. Not sure which one, but I’m thinking it will be the first one. Not that they won’t circle back with it later. This is all theater, and the current mandate is just one act in the show.

  8. Every single day I believe the vaccine is the true plandemic. The reason certain people are exempt from getting it. Can’t have them disabled and dead. The “right” people need to be hurt.

    Nobody, not even those jabbing you know what are in those vials, they could be saline up to the highest concentration of the poison.

    Something I learned yesterday a guy who works at a vo-tech, for over a year not one single person was ever sick up until last month only a few employees or students were jabbed. Then they started pressuring everyone to get jabbed and the jabbed jumped up to over 60%. Now at least half the employees have or are sick. Some minor symptoms up to some being hospitalized, 2 dead. Those getting sick are also the unjabbed, who never got sick until spending hours a day around the jabbed.
    Nobody will ever study these outbreaks though just nobody will ever help these people injured by the jab or the thousands killed by the jab.
    I’m beginning to believe if you’ve had no reactions and are still breathing after getting jabbed, you are one of the lucky ones who got the placebo.

  9. “Persuasion and coercion are mutually exclusive. Freedom to persuade does include freedom to persuade by coercion. It also does not include persuasion for coercion. The armchair ideologue who preaches coercion is as guilty of coercion as one who coerces after such “peaceful” persuasion.”
    ― R. N. Prasher

  10. “Do not consider Collectivists as “sincere but deluded idealists”. The proposal to enslave some men for the sake of others is not an ideal; brutality is not “idealistic,” no matter what its purpose. Do not ever say that the desire to “do good” by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives.”
    ― Ayn Rand

  11. If my thinking is right, every NBA team is a business and it would seem that they probably each have more than a hundred employees, so Slo Choe has this covered.

  12. How is that NBA teams don’t have 100 people on their staff?? How can they skip out not being vaccinated??? Come on Joey, how do they get to skate??

    Funny to listen to Rodman. How a man with that many issues can exist in a modern society is a marvel to behold.
    Anywhere else in the world, he would would have either starved to death or been sold to a circus.
