It was just revealed that Gobert’s teammate, NBA All-Star, Donovan Mitchell has also tested positive for covid-19 as well.
Immediately NBA stars LeBron James, Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban and more immediately reacted to the shocking news that season had its wig pushed back indefinitely.
Phoenix Suns star, Devin Booker, found out the season was suspended while on Twitch playing Call of Duty.
