NBA legend Charles Barkley is arguing that the league’s current players and coaches should move to the front of the vaccine line because they pay higher taxes.
Speaking on TNT’s Inside the NBA early Friday, Barkley advocated for the entire league to be vaccinated ahead of the general population.
“I think they should let the NBA players and coaches all get the vaccine,” Barkley said. “That’s just my personal opinion.”
Barkley included athletes from other major sports as well — arguing that the higher taxes paid by those in professional sports ought to secure them a place at the head of the line.
“NFL players, hockey players, as much taxes as these players pay — let me repeat that — as much taxes as these players pay, they deserve some preferential treatment,” Barkley said.
