Brandon Goodwin, an NBA player, admitted recently that he got blood clots from the COVID vaccine that ended his season and possibly his career.
Moreover, Goodwin said the NBA told him to keep it quiet.
The 26-year old point guard shared on the interactive live streaming service that the first thing he noticed after getting the jabs was he seemed to be exhausted all the time.
Brandon Goodwin said: “I got sick, and I never quite recovered from it. I would always have back pain. I was just super tired in the games. I was so tired. I felt like I couldn’t run up and down the court. My back was hurting. My back really started hurting bad. Then, I’m like, ‘OK. I need to go to the doctor. That’s when I found out I had blood clots. That all within the span of a month.”
Following his examination, Goodwin was informed that he had unusual blood clotting in his body, which could have caused the unusual fatigue and back pain he was experiencing at the time. On his Twitch live stream, he also mentioned that this all happened within a month of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
Brandon Goodwin is confident it was from the COVID vaccine.
He said: “I was fine until then. I was fine up until I took the vaccine, I was fine. People trying to tell you, ‘No. It’s not the vaccine.’ How do you know? You don’t know. Yes, the vaccine ended my season. One thousand percent.”
NBA told Brandon Goodwin to keep it quiet
Somebody from the Hawks organization contacted Goodwin while he was still recuperating in the hospital. The point guard did not reveal who the person was or his connection to the team.
Brandon Goodwin was told to keep quiet, or else a press release would announce his season had “abruptly” ended. “Don’t say anything about it, don’t tell anybody,” the person said. Goodwin was so shocked he was just able to reply with, “Bruh, what?”
The 26-year old basketball pro says that he still loves his former team.
“I still got love for the Hawks,” he shared. “Mad love for the Hawks.”
However, Brandon Goodwin reiterates that it was the COVID-19 shots that caused his season to end early.
