Why is this left out?

While players won't be required to get vaccinated, a vast majority already have been. Around 85 percent of the league's players are vaccinated, a league spokesman said recently, via the New York Times. Unvaccinated players will be subject to a much stricter set of health and safety protocols compared to their vaccinated peers.

This ain’t it though the players union does a better job protecting their top 50 players than the rest of the league.

Because of this part...

It's the requirement that is the issue for most people, not the vaccine itself.

Good.
I feel that even an uneducated moron like Lebron should be able to choose whether he wants to get vaccinated or not.

you have to remember the bottom 80% of the NBA is paid a lot better even as a percentage of the total payroll than the bottom 80% of the NFL or mlb

what this thread should consider the problem is that they know who’s vaxxed and who isn’t for those protocols

Of course, information that doesn't suit your worldview is false and shouldn't be discussed.

Has nothing to do with the players’ union and everything to do with the max contracts.

So you have to get the shot to go to an outdoor football game, but not to play basketball.
Ok

Isn’t that the point of passports and the state reporting systems? Are you in favor of vaccine mandates imposed by government? If not, good for you. If so, whether the nba knows who is vaxxed and who isn’t doesn’t mean anything in terms of whether this exception is ok.

Do I need to hold your hand?

The bottom 80% gets what they get because the top 20% is capped on what they earn. Realistically, Lebron should be able to name his price. But because he’s capped at what his contract can be, that money can be spent on someone else.

re: Covid vaccine will not be required for NBA players
The Reddit crowd is really bothered by this but you can tell they aren’t voicing their opinions like they would when it comes to Cole Beasley and Kirk Cousins.

Because.......well you all know why.

re: Covid vaccine will not be required for NBA players
Do NBA teams not employ more than 100 people? Are players not employees of the team? Players, coaches, front office people, secretaries, etc. have to be close to 100.
