unvaccinated NBA players soon to return to Canada

When the Philadelphia 76ers faced the Toronto Raptors in the first round of the last playoffs, they could only count on Matisse Thybulle intermittently. He missed all three trips to Canada. The explanation? The rear did not have a complete vaccination schedule against Covid-19.

This kind of situation should soon be ancient history because Canada is preparing to lift the vaccination rules imposed at its border. In other words, Matisse Thybulle, Kyrie Irving, and the few other NBA players concerned should be able to go to Scotiabank Arena in Toronto to face the Raptors next season.

The lifting of this vaccination obligation could take place by the end of the month, pending the final approval of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Kyrie Irving’s Wrath

Enough to make Kyrie Irving furious who tweeted: “ If I can work without being vaccinated, then all my brothers and sisters who are also not vaccinated should be able to do the same, without being discriminated against, vilified or fired. This pandemic/forced vaccination is one of the greatest HUMAN RIGHTS violations in history. »
