LeBron James’ take on COVID-19 vaccine is leadership personified

While NBA news has been overtaken by players who are unvaccinated, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James says why he chose to get the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Kyrie Irving, Andrew Wiggins, Bradley Beal, Jonathan Isaac. What do those four names have in common? They’re some of the top players in the NBA who remain unvaccinated. During the Los Angeles Lakers media today on Tuesday, LeBron James spoke on why he chose to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Lakers are expected to be 100 percent vaccinated by the start of the regular season on Oct. 19.

There’s absolutely no way to argue that LeBron isn’t a leader. He’s won four NBA championships – two with the Miami Heat, one with the Cleveland Cavaliers and one with Los Angeles.

More importantly, he’s a leader in all of the communities that he’s set his foot in. In 2018, the LeBron James Family Foundation opened the I Promise School for students who have fallen behind in James’ hometown of Akron.

LeBron’s positive impact on and off of the court is clear. During the Lakers’ media day, James offered his take on why he chose to get vaccinated.

Meanwhile, Beal said that he feels as if the league is forcing players to get the vaccine due to their protocols, but LeBron’s vaccinated because he was thinking about his family and friends.

Yes, the NBA has understandably enforced strict limitations on what unvaccinated players can and can’t do. It’s not about that, though. It’s been a year and a half since the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, and yet some people still don’t grasp the severity of it.

LeBron James and the Lakers get it.
