Brooklyn Nets

John Stockton claims to have a list of ‘hundreds’ of vaccinated athletes that have ‘dropped dead’ on the field

Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers are two of the most notable people in the world that have yet to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Both stars have received much criticism from those who support the vaccine while also receiving lots of support from those who are against the vaccine.

One such person who has now come out in staunch support of the duo is former NBA star John Stockton. The Hall of Famer recently stated that he has a list of “hundreds” of vaccinated athletes that have “dropped dead on the field.”

“I now have a list of hundreds of athletes around the world that are vaccinated that have dropped dead on the field,” said Stockton.

This is not the first time that Stockton has come out in support of unvaccinated athletes. Back in December, he voiced his support for Irving. It will be interesting to see if Irving responds publicly to Stockton’s recent comments.

Stockton, a 10-time All-Star, played for the Utah Jazz throughout his entire time in the NBA. He holds career averages of 13.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, 10.5 assists and 2.2 steals per game.

At this point, it seems pretty clear that people who have gotten the vaccine will continue to support it while those who have not yet gotten it will continue to question its safety and efficacy. Given Stockton’s words, it is obvious what side of the line he stands on.

Recently, the NFL announced that it would be suspending all COVID-19 protocols for both vaccinated and unvaccinated players.

It will be interesting to see if the NBA decides to follow suit in the near future.
