While Adam Silver has gone on record indicating the NBA has no intention of cutting the line for the vaccine, an idea was floated during a league call with team presidents for players to volunteer at public distribution centers to encourage people to get vaccinated against COVID-19, according to a report from Sam Amick of The Athletic.

According to a Pew poll from Nov. 18-29, just 42 percent of Black people intend to get the vaccine when it becomes available. Many in the Black community are distrustful of vaccines, stemming from the shameful Tuskegee syphilis experiment.

With President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris set to be inaugurated on Jan. 20, a source said league officials have been in touch with the incoming administration’s transition team about how the NBA might be able to help.
