As Bradley Beal was describing his reasoning for not taking the vaccine, he pointed to the fact that vaccinated individuals can still get the virus as part of his response.
He also claimed that the side affects from the shot are real, and aren’t being reported on as much.
Shortly after Bradley Beal’s presser, he was being ripped to shreds by people on social media who don’t agree with his vaccine take.

Bradley Beal isn’t trying to compete in this league. He’s just about getting his stats, his money and pretending he’s upset when they lose for the media.

Bradley Beal now joins Kyrie Irving as star point guards who will have to have added protocols because of their refusal to get vaccinated.
Luckily for Beal, he doesn’t play in New York – where there is a mandate that may put Kyrie in jeopardy of missing every home game for the Nets next season.
Bradley Beal and Kyrie Irving are in the minority, as the vast majority of NBA players have already taken the vaccine.
