NBA Hall of Fame Charles Barkley rips those who refuse COVID-19 vaccine

Never one to hide his feelings on just about anything and also not caring what anybody thinks, NBA Hall of Fame and analyst Charles Barkley didn’t hide his feelings when it comes to those who choose not to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Yes, I’m vaccinated. Everybody should be vaccinated. Period,” Barkley said. “The only people who are not vaccinated are just a–holes.

“Can you imagine if one of these guys that are not vaccinated, if they get one of these players’ kids, wives, girlfriends, moms and dads sick and they die over some unnecessary conspiracy bulls—? I think that would be tragic.”

He then continued that he believes that sports leagues should be able to mandate that their employees, including athletes, should receive the vaccine.

“There’s s— you can’t do at work and there’s s— that [you] have to do at work,” Barkley said. “So every workplace has rules and I think one of the rules [should be] that guys have to be vaccinated.”

As of right now, up to 80% of NFL players, 90% of NBA players and 85% of MLB players have reportedly received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The NFL currently requires all Tier 1 staff members to be vaccinated, which has resulted in Minnesota Vikings assistant coach Rick Dennison and New England Patriots co-offensive line coach Cole Popovic departing their respective teams due to their decisions regarding the vaccine.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bill’s Cole Beasley and the Arizona Cardinals’ DeAndre Hopkins have been outspoken regarding their refusal.
