The New Zealand Breakers part ways with Australian NBL star Tai Webster, as he refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine, via newshub.co.nz. The vaccination was needed for the team travel schedule.

Position: PG, SG
Age: 26
Height: 193 cm
Weight: 88 kg
Birth place: Oakland, New Zealand

On 11 July 2021, Webster re-signed with the Breakers on a two-year deal but did not stay with the team for long.

Last season the combo guard averaged 17.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists in 29 NBL games.

The 26-year-old is well aware of European basketball, as Webster is a former Skyliners Frankfurt and Galatasaray Istanbul player.

In the 2019-20 EuroCup campaign with the Turkish club, he registered 10.6 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per 15 contests (12 starts).

Tai's older brother, Corey, also came into the spotlight when he disseminated untrue information last month. The message was directed against vaccines, claiming the Pfizer vaccine killed nearly as many people as COVID-19.

On August 26, a similar situation occurred in Europe, when Quincy Ford left VEF Riga due to his refusal to get vaccinated from COVID-19.
