In this episode, Thurl is joined by Craig Bolerjack(Utah Jazz TV play-by-play announcer) to remember the events that took place in Oklahoma City when it was announced that Utah Jazz center, Rudy Gobert, had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

We talk about the calmness in the arena when the game had been canceled and coach Quin Snyder’s calming leadership that Craig will never forget.

We also dive into what it was like being quarantined that night, how it became the tipping point in our country, and how underprepared we were for the initial outbreak. Then we discuss the state of the NBA, the different scenarios we could see play out for the rest of the season, and the cancellation of March Madness.
