The NBA is threatening unvaccinated players if they don’t fall in line

Vaccine wars continue to rage on as more Americans express outrage over being forced to get the jab just to continue on in their everyday lives.

There are few celebrities and sports stars speaking out against the mandates, but the ones who are being very vocal.

And now the NBA is threatening unvaccinated players if they don’t fall in line.

The NBA is making headlines lately but not for the usual reasons.

Andrew Wiggins of the Golden State Warriors, Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets, Jonathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic and Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards have all spoken out against the vaccine mandates.

Each player has taken a very vocal stance on not getting the vaccine or forcing others to get it.

Well now it appears the NBA is going to start fining players who are unvaccinated.

NBA officials continue to maintain that the league will not force players to get vaccinated, but they’ve added a new twist to the narrative.

The NBA announced earlier this week that unvaccinated players who are forced to miss games because of COVID restrictions in certain cities will not be paid.

Meaning, since certain venues are requiring everyone to be vaccinated to enter, those players who are not vaccinated cannot enter and therefore not play, so the NBA will refuse to pay them for those missed games.

“Any player who elects not to comply with local vaccination mandates will not be paid for games that he misses,” Mike Bass, the NBA’s Executive Vice President of Communications, said in a statement on Wednesday.

NBA players could lose out on millions of dollars of salary if they don’t get the vaccine.

This is a slimy and largely deceptive move on the part of the NBA.

To state you will not force players to be vaccinated, but then find this type of a workaround is underhanded.

The NBA players who refuse the vaccine are vowing to fight on and prove that their personal medical decisions should far outweigh what the league is trying to force them to do.
