Andrew Wiggins Vows To 'Keep Fighting For What I Believe' Amidst Anti-Vaccine Drama

Andrew Wiggins, who happens to play for the Golden State Warriors that reside in California, is now suddenly expected to comply with local vaccine mandates. The former no. 1 overall pick is refusing to get vaccinated and says he'll continue fighting for what he believes.

The former no. 1 overall pick was asked again about his plans going forward as the season approaches.

"I'm just going to keep all of that private right now," Wiggins said. "I'm taking it day by day. My back is definitely against the wall, but I'm just going to fight for what I believe."

Good for him. Ultimately, if he decides he wants to, no one should stop him. However, opting-out should be fine too.

Notice how complying with the local vaccine mandates of California suddenly became Andrew Wiggins' problem to deal with. What ever happened to the logic that the vaccinated are still contracting covid while their cases were less fatal? No mention of slowing spread from one person to the next or preventing the virus whatsoever, but suddenly our media covers Andrew Wiggins like a negligent contrarian punk.

It's intentionally dishonest of our media to ignore these scientific facts to push their agendas and incredibly brave to stand up to it the way Wiggins is.

Wiggins, like most in-shape unvaccinated Americans, knows he's safe from covid. He doesn't need to be pressured into rolling up his sleeve to save him from a virus as a 6-foot-7, 200 pound specimen. He worked for the past decade to get his body in shape from sickness and injury and now suddenly states like California and New York think their pressure is necessary here? Per usual, the ends always justify the means if you asked these loonies their motives behind the pressure.

This same coverage is happening to Nets' star Kyrie Irving, who is also waiting for more covid data. Sports Illustrated published "The Nets Can't Count On Kyrie Irving: Unchecked" earlier today, which goes to show the hostility these unwilling athletes face. Regardless of what we've said about Kyrie in the past, he and Andrew Wiggins aren't alone and they have to join forces. These mindless groupie journalists shouldn't feel any power over the players -- they have none.

The NBA has already denied Andrew Wiggins' attempt at a medical exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine.
