Video: Rudy Gobert touching reporters’ audio equipment surfaces
Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert recently touched a bunch of mics during a press conference with reporters. That video is now going viral after he tested positive for the coronavirus and the NBA suspended the season on Wednesday.

Gobert should have been smarter than this, as he was clearly taking the coronavirus too lightly.
The Frenchman appeared in 62 games for the Jazz this season. He has averaged 15.1 points, 13.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists while shooting 69.8 percent from the field and 62.1 percent from the free-throw line.
Gobert is the reigning two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year. He made his first All-Star team this season. This year was supposed to be special for him and the Jazz, who are title contenders after acquiring Mike Conley from the Memphis Grizzlies in the offseason.
However, now the NBA season is hanging on the balance and Gobert will be in medical care.
