WATCH: NBA Star Draymond Green Won’t Push Fellow Players to Get Vaccinated

Golden State Warriors player Andrew Wiggins explained his CCP virus vaccine status is “none of your business.” And, according to team leader Draymond Green who’s under pressure to encourage Wiggins to get the vaccination, he agrees. It’s none of his business.

Wiggins created a stir when, after first saying it was “personal,” he decided to elaborate on his no vaccine position. Wiggins, who is “soft-spoken” and is not known to be overtly political, said, “What’s right for one person isn’t right for another,” Wiggins added, “It’s none of your business is what it comes down to. I don’t ask you guys what you believe is right or wrong.” Wiggins was not wearing a mask during his presser and would not share his vaccination status.

In a video released in a tweet by Warriors on NBCS, Green, also soft-spoken and non-political, compared getting the vaccine to any other personal health decision a person makes. Saying this “feels like it has turned into a political war.” He added that not everyone is into politics. So, when you make it political, you can turn people off.

Green said, “I think there’s something to be said for people’s concerns about something that’s being pressed so hard. Like, why are you pressing this so hard?” He added, “You say we live in the land of the free. Well, you’re not giving anyone freedom because you’re making people do something… And that goes against everything America stands for.”

About convincing Wiggins to get the vaccine, Green said, “I’m not in any position to go tell him what he should or should not be doing. And as a leader of this team, I’m not going to go to him and say, ‘Hey man, we really need….’ No, you do what you feel you want to do.”

Green concluded by telling reporters he would not ask his teammate if he had a polio vaccine, “so, why would I ask him if he got a Covid vaccine?” Green’s comments regarding non-political people may be resonating.

While there is much conversation about the division in America between “left” and “right,” many Americans say they have become either frightened or confused by what Green called “pressing so hard” to make people get the vaccine. But pressing so hard guarantees many will view the issue as political and not medical, exacerbating the fear and confusion.
