Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is one of the most listened to voices in the NBA. For this reason, the star uses his influence to raise awareness and affirms that all players and coaches in the league must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

“The NBA should insist that all players and coaches are vaccinated or (otherwise) removed from the team,” Abdul-Jabbar told Rolling Stone.

“There is no room for players who are willing to risk the health and lives of their teammates, staff and fans, simply because they are unable to understand the gravity of the situation,” he said.

Abdul-Jabbar’s comments are in reaction to the situation faced by at least 50 current NBA players, who do not have the vaccine against the deadly disease.
