Evan Fournier expressed his displeasure for the behavior of people and journalists towards Rudy Gobert, calling it ‘disgusting’.

“It hurt me. It became the face of the virus in the NBA. The behavior of people and journalists has been disgusting. I don’t understand taking out the names of the sick. It looks like the transfer window when it’s the scoop race.

It was a coronavirus free agency. It was unbearable. You can say a guy is sick without naming him. Today, Philadelphia and the Lakers have cases, and we don’t know who it is. It’s more respectful,” Fournier told L’Equipe.

Gobert was the first NBA player that was tested positive for the coronavirus. The NBA suspended the season for at least 30 days.
