Nah. If ANYTHING, the NBA showed a tried and true WORKING model of how to contain the virus, and that is to play in the Bubble.

Players don't like it. Because they can only fark each other and not groupies. But it's not about you... It's about the consumer.

You wanna be rich and play sports ball? Get your biatch ass back in that bubble. And shut the fark up.

A more valid argument would be the games keep people at home on their couches.

I don't really have an issue with pro athletes getting vaccinated in the first wave. There isn't that many of them and the games bring a nice dose of normality.

I'm on board with this.  Let's auction off vaccine doses to rich assholes to pay for vaccines for everyone else.  It's easier than trying to raise taxes on the 1%ers.

Well there are 450 NBA rostered players. Charge each one 10% of their yearly salary to get the vaccines. Give money to businesses in their community that have been shut down because of covid. Or give money to public schools in their city for PPE to get kids back in school and help with the technology gaps that they have compared to suburb schools.

Oh please, the owners will offer vaccines and in exchange take away guaranteed contracts and bring back the Reserve Clause.

Just stay in your bubble Charles, and let the essential people tell you when it is safe to come out
