Monday, March 9th the Utah Jazz played the Toronto Raptors in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the conclusion of the post game press conferences Rudy Gobert thought it would be a genius move to touch every single microphone and recorder.
There is no reason for this kind of behavior from an adult let alone a professional athlete!
Now because of Gobert’s idiocy the NBA season is cancelled and both Jazz and Raptors players are self-quarantined for 14-days!
Imagine thinking you’re tougher than a virus that was on the verge of a global pandemic on Monday evening. Then a short 36 hours later, the NBA season comes to a halt due to childish behavior from a player acting like five year old that needs to touch everything in site.
I would hope some people are taking this thing a little more serious than before Wednesday, March 11th. Coronavirus has more than an impact on your own health, people need to realize they putting other’s health at risk. Also, pretty much no more sports for like a month… that sucks too!
Update March 12, 2020 11:15am
Rudy Gobert’s teammate, Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for Coronavirus because he insisted on touching every one of his teammates lockers and belongings.
Rudy Gobert has to be the most hated player in the NBA right now and for the foreseeable future. End his contract and kick him out of the league!
