NBA Star Rudy Gobert, Diagnosed with the Coronavirus Sports World Stops

March 13, 2020

The Sports World came to a “Complete Stop” Wednesday Night when Utah Jazz NBA Star Rudy Gobert was diagnosed with the coronavirus. His Superstar teammate, Donovan Mitchell also tested positive for the virus Thursday.

The viral video of Colbert touching all the media microphones, prior to the news being released was unacceptable. He apologized Thursday on Instagram saying……..

“I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of concern and support over the last 24 hours. I have gone through so many emotions since learning of my diagnosis … mostly fear, anxiety, and embarrassment. The first and most important thing is I would like to publicly apologize to the people that I may have endangered. At the time, I had no idea I was even infected. I was careless and make no excuse. I hope my story serves as a warning and causes everyone to take this seriously. I will do whatever I can to support using my experience as way to educate others and prevent the spread of this virus. I am under great care and will fully recover. Thank you again for all your support. I encourage everyone to take all of the steps to stay safe and healthy. Love.”

Gobert’s immaturity towards this very serious virus is the reason why the decision to shutdown the NBA Season or any Sports League was the right thing to do. I love watching sports, but I can go a few weeks, if not months without it. I’ll live, so will you. Besides, isn’t that the point!
