Rudy Gobert Made Coronavirus Joke By Touching Every Microphone In Room, Now He Has It

Life comes at you fast.

At a press conference Monday, Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was reportedly attempting to make light or a point about overreaction and fear of the coronavirus by touching every reporter’s microphone and recorder before he left.

On Wednesday, Gobert tested positive for the Coronavirus.

The NBA then postponed Utah’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder just prior to the tip, even after the starting lineups were announced. Not long after, the league announced they were suspending the 2019 season due to the outbreak, likely with Gobert coming down with the virus as a major factor in that.
