Ayon kay NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, hindi na dapat pang pumila para mabakunahan ng COVID vaccine ang mga NBA player.
Dagdag pa nito na patas naman kung ganito ang mangyayari dahil ang mga ito aniya ang nagbabayad ng malalaking buwis sa US.
“We need 300 million shots, give a thousand to some NBA players, NFL players, hockey players. As much taxes as these players pay, they deserve some preferential treatment,” aniya.
Salungat naman ang opinyon rito ng kanyang kasamahan sa show na si Kenny Smith.
“These are the healthiest people in the world. You don’t need the vaccines first,” kontra ni Smith kay Barkley.
” If your job is taking you from city to city on a daily basis, then that would make sense why they should be at the front if the line, even before football.” (Sarah Jireh Asido)
