Denver Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly has spoken with Michael Porter Jr. about the second-year forward theorizing the coronavirus pandemic is "being used for population control".
Denver Nuggets player Michael Porter Jr.is being criticized for saying COVID-19 is "overblown" and being used as part of a bigger agenda to control people, USA Today reported. Porter's population control comments are one of many that most athletes aren't bold to say regardless of opposition. Because of the virus, the whole world is being controlled. You're required to wear masks, and who knows what happens when this vaccine comes out - you might have to have the vaccine in order to travel.
"Obviously, I'm not the thought police", Malone said during a Zoom session with reporters. I have by no means been vaccinated in my existence, I have under no circumstances had any photographs or just about anything like that.
Porter has been criticized for his social media behavior in the past.
The University of Missouri, where Porter attended, briefly, requires students to be vaccinated for measles, mumps, and rubella.
It's not certain if Porter received such a waiver.
But even without those specifics, Porter continued doubling down on his theory.
"It could get mad, but it is absolutely an agenda at the rear of every little thing which is heading on suitable now, and all you can do is sit again and watch what's likely on and not get too emotionally involved".
"But it is a significant thing, it is a genuine matter, but yeah, this is staying overblown".
The coach said he isn't sure who will be available to play against the Miami Heat on Saturday when the Nuggets (43-22) begin their seeding games in third place in the Western Conference.
The NBA season will restart Thursday night in the bubble, where players have been tested regularly while being quarantined away from the general public.
