SAN FRANCISCO (LifeSiteNews) — Canadian NBA star Andrew Wiggins revealed that his biggest regret of the season was taking the experimental COVID-19 vaccine.

During a July 18 FanSided interview, the Golden State Warriors forward discussed being coerced into taking the COVID-19 vaccine to be allowed to play this season, when he earned his first all-star selection status and won his first NBA title.

“I still wish I didn’t get [vaccinated], to be honest with you,” the player stated.

“I did it, and I was an all-star this year and champion, so that was the good part, just not missing out on the year, the best year of my career,” Wiggins said.

“But for my body, I just don’t like putting all that stuff in my body, so I didn’t like that, and I didn’t like that it wasn’t my choice. I didn’t like that it was either get this or don’t play,” he continued.

Local regulations would have prevented Wiggins from playing in home games. Accordingly, he decided to take the experimental vaccine before the season opened.

NBA star Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets faced a similar problem when New York regulations prevented him from participating in his team’s games. However, Irving refused to be pressured, explaining that his Christian faith guided him to reject the abortion-tainted COVID jab.

The COVID-19 vaccines are especially dangerous for young men and athletes. Pediatric heart specialist Dr. Kirk Milhoan, who treated hundreds of COVID-19 patients, warned against vaccine mandates, which he asserts could lead to a surge of “sudden cardiac death” in young athletes.

Last year, the CDC admitted there is a “likely association” of “mild” heart inflammation in adolescents and young adults after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

According to a January 2022 study, mRNA COVID-19 vaccines pose higher risks of potentially deadly heart inflammation to young men than the virus itself.

Moreover, while the injections are touted for their “safety,” their admitted risk profiles have been expanded to include severe anaphylactic reactions, fatal thrombotic events, the inflammatory heart condition myocarditis, and the neurologically disabling Guillain Barré Syndrome.

A November study from Hong Kong estimated that one in 2,680 boys between 12-17 years old will develop heart inflammation within two weeks of a second Pfizer jab. An article by Israeli researchers put the risk at one in 6,600 for young men ages 16-19 who received Pfizer vaccines.
