Utah Jazz teammates Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert seem to be back on the same boat following the aftermath of them both contracting the coronavirus.
The pair of All-Stars called out a Jazz fan on Twitter, who not only took issue with the NBA possibly plastering ‘Black Lives Matter’ on its courts at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, but he also threatened to no longer support the team.
Gobert claimed that the fans shouldn’t be watching them in the first place, while Donovan Mitchell simply waved him goodbye.
Aside from allowing statement stickers on the hardwood, the NBA will also permit players to change the last name on their jerseys to social justice messages.
Gobert was treated as the NBA’s patient zero that got the league suspended after his behavior led to him contracting COVID-19. Mitchell publicly called him out for it, but it seems both parties have now made their peace and are ready to help the Jazz make a strong playoff push.
Utah had a 41-23 record prior to the hiatus and currently holds the 4th seed in the crowded Western Conference.
