Most of the public-facing individuals who have enthusiastically rejected vaccines do not surprise me. Joe Rogan, for example, is an MMA commentator who hosts a three-hour daily podcast where he browses the internet and conducts uncompromising interviews, while nodding to the emotions of those who disagree contradiction. Of course you are will “question science” and seek “alternative treatments.” His whole life has been a journey to find great alternative treatment that people pay him huge sums to continue. Protect the Brooklyn Nets and the Vaccine Warehouse Kyrie Irving always a very weird person and pain in the butt. Aaron Rodgers believe in chemical conspiracies. Eric Clapton continues racist “British for British” and succeed in making music. He is perfect targeted for paranoid feelings about globalism or whatever.

And then there’s John Stockton. Before a few months ago, even the most ardent NBA fans couldn’t tell you much about John Stockton, the man. He’s a great basketball player, the NBA’s all-time leader in assists and steals, the greatest player in Utah Jazz history (sorry, Postman), and is considered by many to be “low level dirt.” He was late enlisted in Gonzaga, a rigged basketball powerhouse in Spokane, Washington, where Stockton was born and raised. When his NBA career ended, he returned to Spokane, where he raised his children and stayed out of sight. For those not from the Pacific Northwest, Spokane is an Eastern Washington suburb notable for…not so much. Anyone who wants to retire there after making millions playing professional sports wants to live a modest life.

He is not associated with any particular political purpose nor does he have any temperament other than “high concentration”. Two of his five children, David and Laura, also play for Gonzaga. Until recently, he attended most of Gonzaga’s matches, sitting on the sidelines. When asked to speak in front of a crowd, which he seemed reluctant to do, he deflected praise for his teammates. He claimed, in his Hall of Fame speech, that he was “never the best player on his team”. Not exactly, but you get it. He’s egotistical, humble, and maybe even a little shy. He could easily live the rest of his life the way he has for the past fifteen years without anyone having to think twice.
