2 time DPOY center that literally stifles opponents cannot fit in our system?

Yeah okay lol.

If we can do well with Theis, I think we can manage with Gobert. I just wonder if his maturity level is up to par for championship aspirations.
He definitely stifled those Rockets teams that exposed him lol.

That's just one game.

Muscle Flexbrook is a LOAD for just about ANYONE to guard - just ask BOS recently........
I'm talking about the playoffs against the Rockets. Chris Paul and James Harden were constantly attacking Gobert on the pick-and-roll, and Gobert looked like a fish out of water.

And who did Utah have on defense to help Gobert?

Defense is a TEAM sport...

Don't say Spydah, Ingles or Bojan........lol

Weren't there rumors about chemistry problems among players in that locker room dating back at least several weeks, way before any of the Gobert virus news? Might be misremembering

Joking like he was during a pandemic when people are dying is beyond stupid and immature and truly shows a lack of class. Why on Earth would I ever trade someone who acts like gentleman for someone who acts like an ignoramus. I will pass on desire to have Gobert on our team as I am sure Danny would as well. Cousins and Gobert can go join the Knicks or maybe Kyrie and Durant can have them with their new puppet coach.

Well he DID apologize....this is HUGE, being that apologies are a lost art in society nowadays.

Rudy is not a diva, either...seems like a likable fellow.

What exactly about Gobert makes him likable? I have not gotten that impression at all

Agree about apologies. Most in this day and age never do or even think it is an option. Still hard for me to want to take a chance on him. But you are right, He earned some respect back from apologizing. TP.

Yeah you're right. I heard of this as well. There was a small article on SLCDunk about it as well I think.

Gobert is a great defender

He shut down the whole NBA   JK

Too soon?

If Stevens can make Kanter playable and Theis a decent perimeter defender he would make Gobert elite. I would love to have him alongside Smart, Brown, and Tatum. I would just worry about his offense, is he a decent passer?

Gobert is already elite.

The guy is a two time DPOY, 3-time All-Defense, 2-time All-NBA, 1-time All-Star that over the last 4 years has average 14.7/12.6/1.5 with 0.7 SPG and 2.3 BPG shooting 66.4/0/64.6 with a TS% of around 68%.

I think Stevens would optimize Gobert's skills in Stevens' system and help show how elite Gobert is. But making Gobert elite, well, Gobert has already shown he is that.

That joke's been floating around Reddit haha.

"Rudy Gobert defensive player of the year? He shut the whole league down."

TP for the sense of humor.

The notion that Stevens can't make use of a 2x DPOY center that has the length + wingspan to be able to defend almost anyone near the rim is ridiculous.

Some players cannot shoot nor space the floor, doesn't mean we can't use them either.
