Brandon Goodwin recently gave a tell-all on Twitch about how his season with the Atlanta Hawks ended earlier than expected after getting his COVID-19 shots. 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.
“I was just super tired in the games,” Goodwin related. “I felt like I couldn’t run up and down the court. Also, my back was hurting.” Then one day, the point guard from Norcross High School experienced back pain so severe, he knew he needed to go to the doctor to find out what the problem was.
After his checkup, Goodwin was informed that he had unusual blood clotting in his body, which possibly caused the unusual fatigue and back pain he was suffering from during that time. On his live stream on Twitch, he also pointed out that this all happened within a month after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
“I was fine until then,” the 26-year ex-Atlanta Hawk stressed. “I was fine until I took the vaccine.”
And to add insult to injury, 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.
He 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, Goodwin reiterates that it was the COVID-19 shots that caused his season to end early.
“Yes, the vaccine ended my season,” the point guard pointed out. “A thousand percent.”
