Relationship Between Utah’s Mitchell, Gobert Appears Beyond Repair
This grudge may be indefinite.
According to reports, the fractured relationship between Utah Jazz stars Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert “doesn’t appear salvageable” due to the fallout from both players testing positive for COVID-19. Both players are currently symptom-free, but remain on bad terms.
Last month, Utah’s All-Star guard admitted that it “took awhile for me to kind of cool off” at Gobert when hearing of the positive test results.
Gobert and Mitchell were the only two players to test positive for novel coronavirus.
“I’m confident our team is going to be totally fine,” said Jazz forward Joe Ingles. “I heard Donovan’s response (on GMA), or whatever it was, to that question, and a part of that is on Donovan and Rudy to sort out if he’s frustrated with him or whatever. But I have no doubt when we go back to training, or when our season starts again, our team is going to be what we have been and what we are.”
If the season is to return, the Jazz are expected to be contenders in the Western Conference, meaning Utah better hope that their two stars get back on the same page.
