NBA legend John Stockton appears in anti-vaccine documentary

John Stockton is trying to assist … the anti-vax community.

The NBA Hall of Famer appeared in an anti-vaccine documentary. In the cameo, the former Utah Jazz point guard brags about his alleged knowledge of COVID-19. 

“This isn’t a virus cheating us of this opportunity,” Stockton said in one clip. “It’s the guys making decisions saying, ‘No, no we’re too scared. We’re going to shut everything down. Sit in your house and be careful.’ My kids and grandkids hearing these things and accepting them as truth when I know by my significant amount of research that it isn’t, it’s very frustrating.” 

Stockton is featured alongside a group of “leading experts” in the scientific community. 

In another quote on the documentary’s website, Stockton seems to question whether the world is missing out on the next great athlete because of pandemic-induced shutdowns.

“One of the things that sticks in my head is losing someone like Steph Curry to basketball would be a crime,” Stockton said. “I just think what a disappointment to this world it would be if that guy didn’t become who he is. So I wonder who we are missing out on right now.” 

Stockton, 59, is a 10-time NBA All-Star, Hall of Famer and the league’s all-time assist leader. He played his entire 19-year career with the Jazz.
