Footage Surfaces of Rudy Gobert Poking Fun At Coronavirus By Purposely Touching Every Mic & Recorder (VIDEO)
Writer for Total Pro Sports Since August 31, 2015
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.
That footage has surfaced:
As part of the Jazz’s COVID-19 response, shootaround availability was done in the ZBBC media room today rather than on the court. As Rudy Gobert got finished discussing the situation, he stood up, leaned over and made it a point to touch every mic and recorder in front of him. 😂

Gobert was not only ruled out before Wednesday’s game against the OKC Thunder, the entire game got canceled shortly after line-ups were announced.
To make matters worse, he would soon test positive for Coronavirus and the NBA would suspend the 2019-2020 season.
The NBA has suspended its season.

The remaining members of the Jazz and Thunder are being tested for COVID-19 as we speak.
