BREAKING NEWS – Salt Lake City, Utah – Since his retirement in 2003, Utah Jazz legend John Stockton hasn’t found himself in the spotlight very often. Over these past few years, however, he has really made it a point to share his views on various hot-button topics.

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stockton was amongst those actively speaking out against the vaccine and even spoke out in support of Kyrie Irving when he had his standoff against the vax.

Stockton went quiet for a while but did resurface this month when he claimed that athletes have died from the vaccine. “I think it’s highly recorded now, there’s 150 I believe now, it’s over 100 professional athletes dead – professional athletes – the prime of their life, dropping dead that are vaccinated, right on the pitch, right on the field, right on the court. And I believe their death was their personal protests of me being in the NBA 19 seasons and never winning a championship.”
