The NBA player Rudy was seen saying Thursday noon after a video surfaced of him touching the mic of all the media people at a press meet after he was tested positive on Corona. He said that: “I have gone through so many emotions since learning of my diagnosis… mostly fear, anxiety, and embarrassment.”
In his apology statement he stated that: “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,” he continued, presumably referencing the moment from the press conference. “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 a way to educate others and prevent the spread of this virus.”
Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz thought the NBA precautions were a joke — so he touched everything in the room.
He tested positive for coronavirus today & now the whole NBA is shut down. 😫

He also added saying: “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.”
The NBA has decided to call off the season post Rudy getting affected by Corona on the 11th of this month. Post his press meet incident some of the followers called him an “idiot” because of his act.
Though the other NBA stars stayed at a distance and their interviews were recorded but once Rudy completed his talk he purposely went forward and touched all the microphones and recorders. After 2 days from the meet, he was diagnosed positive with Corona Virus.
The French origin Rudy is now been attacked on Twitter as his video has surfaced across the country within a blink of the eye. One of the Twitterati stated that: “I’m a jazz fan and a Rudy Gobert fan, I can’t defend this sh*t. What was he thinking, man?” and another said: “Rudy Gobert is a real defensive player of the year. Shut the whole league down.”
