That isn't good. He's probably out of here when his rookie deal is done.
You mocking me lol. I’d want my mom taking care of me too if I was locked in a room for 14 days lol. I wonder if he came here first and then went a few days ago back when Woj announces they could leave their market or if they just sent him there in the first place. If he came to Utah and then went there he would have had to get a special jet to transport him while he’s infected.

I love Spence lol


but really, I’ve seen several reporters make jokes about all the blame that’s came down on road. I saw Eric Woodyard stick up for him yesterday too saying we shouldn’t just be blaming it on one guy. I have to think as certain someone scrolls through their twitter feed, and as more players end up having the virus are announced in the coming days and weeks, he’s gonna start realizing how badly he acted. That is at least if he’s the guy we think he is, he should be humble enough to take a step back and realize what he did during a heated moment was just wrong.

Everything about the virus just sucks. I thought all NBA teams were supposed to stay in place for awhile. I guess if he is going to locked up, have it be around mom and dad.

Woj announced Monday I believe that NBA players could return to their home cities through consultation with the league and their team I believe. I follow Trae Young on IG and noticed he’s back home as well. If Donovan leaves, or forces his way out of here like that Donovan was never anything close to who we thought he was. He did just make a donation to Granite School District to provide kids with lunch throughout all of this so I’d say he showed commitment to the community through this as well, even if it’s purpose seemed mostly for PR which was a little lost because of the way he’s acted during this.

I have to say your Donovan negativity is really hard to stomach. What a self-righteous dork you are showing yourself to be. Judge not lest you be judged certainly is fitting to describe your reaction. Neither Donovan nor Rudy have done anything malicious.

Donovan has done more malicious than Rudy in his actions towards the two of them. Rudy goofed around and was stupid and owes Donovan a face to face apology. Donovan threw Rudy under a bus at his worst moment more than once during this. He also owes Rudy and apology for how he acted even if it’s understandable why he was upset. This has already been hashed out. I love Rudy. I love Donovan. Out of the two of them I’m more confident that I better know who Rudy is.

I’m starting to switch teams and feel Donnie is in the right here. Like Rudy probably did **** in the locker room multiple times a day for a week or two and Donnie and others told him to stop and he didn’t. All the ****ing time. And now we’re at where we’re at.

Donovan is in the right for being upset in regards to that. He has every right to be upset. But the way he’s aired those grievances has been very suspect. I’ve also hated Rudy taking jabs at teammates in postgame media interviews this season. This has been brewing, Donovan just finally snapped because of this. The issue was never that Don is wrong, just that he’s wrong the way he went about airing that frustration. He went on GMA and furthered locker room drama. Like Don come on man.

It’s done. Move on with your life man. Forgive Don and move forward already. It’s not that your angst is not deserved, it’s how you aired it though. Here, on a message board for all to see? Come on. Just tweet him your apology and forgiveness and be done.

Also this.
I love how we went from naming specific players. To just “players” to now not even letting it be known if it’s players or not.

The blaming game on Gobert is ludicrous.
Mitchell should have not added gas to the fire; hope these are not his true colors.

I think he’s just 23 years old, upset, didn’t want his family harmed or sick, and had a bad moment. Generally and basically completely Donovan has been a wonderful person. His long term reaction is what will matter. As more and more players get reported infected and as more people get the sickness not only will Donovan look at it differently but so will all those who went crazy over Rudy in the first place. Donovan I think will come to terms here. Rudy can be sensitive and I do wonder what his long term reaction to this will be. In all honestly, even with some of my thoughts I do think Donovan is a good person. We all have bad moments. His frustration was warranted the media outlets to express that frustration were not. Hopefully this strengthens things going forward between Donovan and the Jazz. Rudy’s long term reaction will be interesting to me. There was one report that said Rudy had been having “house guests” in areas where the virus was more heavily prevalent. So the more I see the more I think Donovan has a right to be upset with Rudy, just wish he had made different decisions expressing that frustration.

This whole thing is in a constant state of flux. There are enough players now with the virus they don't need to name names. When Rudy was diagnosed it was unique. It no longer is and perhaps the media has realized the problems it creates naming individuals.

Don isn't throwing gas in the fire. He expressed his feelings. Humans will do that. The only way this gets blown out of proportion is if its assisted. Like with social media and such.

He did and I think anyone’s only issue is he’s used Woj, Mannix,etc. as an outlet to air it. No one thinks he shouldn’t be upset, it’s just the fact he had to go to the media as he did.
