In the future, a young person will ask an elder to give them an example of just how insane the current times we’re living in once were. And that elderly person will say, “let me tell you about the time Kyrie Irving, Bradley Beal, Andrew Wiggins, and Jonathan Isaac – four Black NBA players – were all being publicly supported by a woman-hating piece of shit named Ted Cruz.

Yes, you read that right. The guy who doesn’t want women to have any control of their bodies, is “standing” with idiotic anti-vaxxers in the NBA in support of them “controlling” theirs.

Hilariously enough, the NBA has announced that “any player who elects not to comply with local vaccination mandates will not be paid for games that he misses.” Conveniently for Cruz, Texas is one of the states where unvaccinated players can still play, and so he’s been afforded the opportunity to spew nonsense without it directly affecting him.

“When it comes to vaccines, I believe in vaccines, I have been vaccinated, my wife has been vaccinated, my parents have been vaccinated, her parents have been vaccinated,” Cruz said in August.

Translation: “We’re safe over here in my house, but y’all can do whatever the fuck y’all wanna do. I don’t give a shit about y’all anyway.”

And to make things worse, Denver’s Michael Porter Jr. has joined the Idiot Dream Team of anti-vaxxers.

“For me, I had COVID twice, I saw how my body reacted, and although the chances are slim, with the vaccine, there’s a chance you could have a bad reaction to it,” Porter told the Denver Post. “For me, I don’t feel comfortable.

No one ever “sticks to sports” when it’s actually time to.
