This careless behavior of Rudy can also be seen in the Monday press conference where he “jokingly” touched all the microphones and recorders of journalists. Although he later apologized for his ridiculous act.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, “The Jazz are fortunate that they don’t have to get back together and start playing games again right now. There is a lot of work to do to repair relationships…there’s a lot of frustration with Gobert.”

It is understandable that Utah Jazz and the NBA as a whole are going through some tough and unprecedented crisis. And while dealing with this crisis, we should also remember that this is absolutely no time for indulging in the blame game or putting your anger out on one player, in this case, Rudy Gobert.

Yes, he was careless but he absolutely does not mean any malice to his team and players. And going further this scenario of putting your frustration on someone will not going to solve this crisis in hand.
