Many top players from the NBA have expressed apprehension about participating in league-sponsored Public Service Announcements in support of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Player apprehension about receiving the vaccine are consistent with those that also exist in Black communities throughout the country, agents and players told ESPN.

There are a number of factors contributing to the reluctance from many players, including the scheduling of a largely unpopular All-Star Game.

As the league works to educate players on the benefits of the vaccine, Adam Silver told the general managers that the process could be incentivized for teams and individuals with the loosening of quarantine and testing protocols for those vaccinated.
