John Stockton claims to have list of hundreds of vaccinated athletes who have dropped dead on the field
Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving and Green Bay Packers midfielder Aaron Rodgers are two of the most famous people in the world who have yet to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Both stars have received a lot of criticism from those who support the vaccine, while they have received a lot of support from those who are against it.
One such person, former NBA star John Stockton, has spoken out in favour of the duo. The Hall of Famer recently stated that he had a list of “hundreds” of vaccinated athletes who “died in the field”.
“I now have a list of hundreds of athletes from around the world who are vaccinated who have dropped dead on the field,” Stockton said.
This is not the first time Stockton has spoken out in favour of unvaccinated athletes. Last December, he expressed support for Irving. It will be interesting to see if Irving reacts publicly to Stockton’s recent comments.
Stockton, a ten-time All-Star, has played for the Utah Jazz his entire NBA career. His career averages are 13.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, 10.5 assists and 2.2 steals per game.
At this point, it seems pretty clear that those who have received the vaccine will continue to support it, while those who have not yet received it will continue to question its safety and efficacy. Given Stockton’s comments, it is clear which side he is on.
Recently, the NFL announced that it was suspending all COVID-19 protocols for both vaccinated and unvaccinated players.
It will be interesting to see if the NBA decides to do the same in the near future.
