Rudy Gobert will donate $500,000

The Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert will donate $500,000 to arena workers in Utah, Oklahoma City and France who were impacted by his coronavirus diagnosis. He actually did more tahn this, people are angry at him but i'm a weird way, he involuntarily became the scarificial lamb to wake everyone up that no one is exempt from the COVID-19. It's not like he meant to get this and kept it hidden. Maybe he got it from a fan as he was being a good guy and gave a high five to someone in the stands. He's doing his best. NBA players have responsibilities as they are perceived as role models by a lot of people. Him doing insensitive jokes like these even after the virus was already declared by the World Health Organization as a global pandemic is proof that people like him do not take this seriously enough and that some people can be world class. Everyone is blaming him but his actions did also saved lives. If he was not diagnosed sporting events were not suspened and if it continued the higher percentage the COVID-19 is spreading. The fact he's even taking responsibilty and donating his hard earned money is really good. It's a step to repairing the fractured relationship to his teammates. Anyways, get well soon Rudy Gobert.
