As you have almost certainly heard by now, on Wednesday, Utah Jazz All-Star Rudy Gobert became the first NBA player to test positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Since then, a video has emerged which shows Gobert (before he knew he had the virus) touching reporters’ microphones and recording devices, potentially exposing them to the virus.
On Thursday, Gobert took to Instagram to thank everyone for their support and to apologize for being careless.
Gobert’s teammate and fellow All-Star Donovan Mitchell has also tested positive for the coronavirus and there have been reports that Gobert was also careless in the Jazz locker room.
Hopefully, Gobert does serve as an example of what not to do until this passes..or even after it passes.
