As part of the Jazz's COVID-19 response, shootaround availability was done in the ZBBC media room today rather than on the court. As Rudy Gobert got finished discussing the situation, he stood up, leaned over and made it a point to touch every mic and recorder in front of him.

Pretty reckless by Gobert.

Frankly, the reporting of who has it is disgusting and massive breaches of people's privacy (unless they've consented to the media reporting themselves);
Funny how people have completely forgotten its a medical matter and highly private information.
You wouldn't see other article's about people's health information and think that that was OK?

Seems like poetic justice for Gorbert after that kind of joke.

How long ago did he touch the microphones?
Day or so before because it happened at/after the previous home game. Prior to that they were in Detroit and Boston.

Rudy looks like a bloody know now for the way he acted in that press conference a few days ago.

Any media member who gets crook should sue him!

I think Gobert was highlighting America is not taking Covid seriously. You don't think it is serious, allow people to play with your face, cough in your direction, in this case - touch your things.

Gobert isnt the only one with Covid19. He happens to be someone who was tested. If you don’t swan for Covid19, you can’t have it.

No our stupid excuse for a government hasn't taken it seriously, and so fellow idiots are also not taking it seriously, the rest of the world is now locking down, meanwhile Andrews and Morrison governments are still opening doors

A Utah-based reporter who was in that conference with Gobert took his actions to be Gobert showing solidarity with the reporters being held some distance from the players. Obviously looks stupid in retrospect though.

Came in the same climate as LeBron saying that if the NBA shut out the crowds, he'd refuse to play. Only takes a day or so to change some attitudes.

Australia IS taking it seriously. They are taking appropriate action for the current situation here, and knowing that our health infrastructure is able to cope, they dont need to doing anything rash just yet.

Gobert is a dill. So arrogant to think he could not be affected. Probably continually told how special he is. Goes to show, ability does not equal smarts.

Your kidding right? They don't have enough test kits or masks or icu beds or doctors. At least the governments in surplus...... Morrison is useless and so is albo.
And your extremely ignorant to what’s going on around the world, wake up mate before your family is in danger.

770, Italy actually has one of the most advanced healthcare systems in the world, and they are not coping at all.

Italy has about the same number of hospital beds per 1000 people (3.2) as Australia (3.8). That's more than the UK (2.6) and US (2.8) but significantly less than France (6), Germany (8.0), South Korea (12.3) and Japan (13). These figures are important given this *will* escalate to very large numbers in every country, and about 10% are requiring hospitalisation.
No - Australia is not necessarily ready to cope very well with this.

That's right ^ some Australians starting to understand the magnitude of this, don’t listen to the government.
