Rudy Gobert's Coronavirus diagnosis was the shot heard around the sporting world and resulted in the immediate suspension of the NBA season.

Before getting tested, Gobert mocked his runny nose and defiantly wiped his hands on the mics in the Utah Jazz press room. He was also said to have been reckless with his fluids in the locker room. Today, his teammate Donovan Mitchell tested positive.

In his Instagram post about the diagnosis, Mitchell appeared to shade irresponsible Rudy.

Thanks to everyone who has been reaching out since hearing the news about my positive test. We are all learning more about the seriousness of this situation and hopefully people can continue to educate themselves and realize that they need to behave responsibly both for their own health and for the well being of those around them. I appreciate the authorities in Oklahoma who were helpful with the testing process and everyone from the @utahjazz who have been so supportive. I am going to keep following the advice of our medical staff and hope that we can all come together and be there for each other and our neighbors who need our help❤️🕷

Ya think Gobert will be on the Jazz next year?

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.
