There's a lot of frustration towards Rudy among the Jazz players

Rudy-Gobert-Donovan-Mitchell

The NBA suspended the season after Rudy Gobert tested positive for the Coronavirus. Adam Silver made a difficult, but necessary decision to minimize the spread of the virus. Before he knew he was infected, Rudy Gobert didn't take it as seriously, and in all likelihood became NBA's Patient 0."

All reports indicate Gobert acted the same way around his teammates, touching their things in the locker room and underestimating the seriousness of the situation. Far from being the only one acting that way, Gobert has the misfortune of becoming the symbol for reckless childish behavior. This video will follow him for the rest of his career. 

After 58 people from the Jazz organization were tested, it was determined Donovan Mitchell also has the Coronavirus and is under the recommended protocol. Mitchell addressed everyone through Instagram, and a large portion of his post seems to have been pointed at Gobert.

Donovan Mitchell

According to Woj, Mitchell isn't the only one frustrated with Gobert's behavior before he tested positive. Several other players expressed frustration with the French center, and the break that is about to happen will help everyone to repair the fractured relationships. The Jazz have been struggling with their basketball identity all season, and this sort of situation doesn't help.

The Jazz are fortunate that they don't have to get back together and start playing games right now. There's a lot of work to do to repair relationships, not just between Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, but others in the locker room. There's a lot of frustration with Gobert.

The Jazz are always talked about as a high character team, and the shock of everything going on is contributing to teammates being frustrated with Gobert. He was very apologetic in his Instagram post, and his reputation and attitude will surely help the team get over this and accept his apology. What Gobert can do now is to accept the role of a symbol and let others use his mistake as an example of what not do to.

Don't underestimate the seriousness of the virus. We don't need to panic, but we need to stay alert. Follow the recommended procedures and be considerate of others. If we are reckless, things will get out of hand, and lives will be severely impacted. Stay safe and take care of each other.
