Former Atlanta Hawks point guard Brandon Goodwin came clean about his season-ending illness last year during a Twitch video game livestream earlier this month.
Chatting on Twitch while gaming, the NBA star described learning he had blood clots soon after taking an experimental Covid shot
“I got sick and I never, like, recovered from it,” Goodwin said. “I would always have back pain, I was just super tired in the games. Like when we played Philly back-to-back, bro I was so tired. I felt like I couldn’t run up and down the court.”
“That’s when my back really started hurting bad,” he continued. “Then, I’m like, ‘Alright, I need to go to the doctor.’ That’s when I found out I had blood clots. That all happened in the span of a month.”
The basketball star confirmed the vaccination was the catalyst for his ailment, saying, “I was fine up until I took the vaccine, I was fine. So, people trying to tell you, ‘No. It’s not the vaccine.’ Like, how do you know? You don’t know.”
“Yes, the vaccine ended my season,” Goodwin later declared. “One thousand percent.”
