You'll probably never relate to an NBA player more.

The sports world has been rocked by the coronavirus pandemic which stretches across the globe, with no league or sport an exception. The NCAA Tournament will be played behind closed doors, the McLaren Formula 1 team has pulled out of Australian GP and on Wednesday, the NBA joined the unfortunate trend.

Late Wednesday night, the NBA decided to do the correct thing and suspend the season amid COVID-19 concerns. The news also came on the heels of the report that Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the illness.

Suns All-Star Devin Booker was playing "Call of Duty" when he heard the news, and he reacted like all of us did.

(Warning: Video has NSFW language.)

The stunned disbelief, the multiple F-bombs, the jaw dropping to his lap. In that moment, we are all Devin Booker, and Devin Booker is all of us.

Really, "What the f—, bro?" is a common refrain while playing "Call of Duty," but it's especially poignant in this case. Booker was in the midst of a breakout season with the Suns, earning his first All-Star Game bid while averaging just over 26 points per game this season.

Well, now there's plenty of time for Booker to grind "Warzone" while the NBA world awaits the Association's next move.
