Rudy Gobert does fancy behind-the-back pass to Trevor Booker for dunk

Rudy Gobert has been known as the Stifle Tower due to his defensive rim presence. But, hey, the dude can do a little passing, too.

I guess the Warriors’ Andrew Bogut didn’t learn the meaning of sharing when he was growing up in Australia. During the Warriors-Jazz recent game, Utah’s Rudy Gobert was soaking in sweat and needed some help from Bogut. Seeing him grab himself a towel to dry off, Rudy decided to see if Bogut would be a pal and share with him. Apparently not as Bogut did not want to share with...

Utah Jazz: The Gobert Effect

Rarely are trades a win-win for all parties involved. It is even rarer when the win-win trade’s impact is seen immediately. That has been the case so far as we look back at the Enes Kanter trade on February 19th. For the Oklahoma City Thunder, they received a big that can score inside and out.
