Jared Woodcox just published an article on the Utah Jazz and the opportunity they have to go with a bigger lineup, even while the rest of the league is moving more and more toward small-ball. You can find that article here. I agree with his conclusion that the Jazz should not shy away from keeping Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors on the floor together most of the time, because even...

Report: Rudy Gobert set to work with Dirk Nowitzki's shooting coach

Anthony Davis is clearly the most exciting young big man in the NBA. No one denies that.But after the Brow, the conversation about the league's best upcoming front court players gets pretty crowded. Even more so last season, with the emergence of Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, a 22-year-old from France. When the Jazz traded Enes Kanter to the Oklahoma City Thunder and slotted Gobert...

Breakout season leaves Gobert and Utah Jazz wanting more

While Rudy Gobert placed third in the Most Improved Player voting, if the NBA had a "Breakout Star" award, the Stifle Tower would have almost certainly won in a blowout. Gobert emerged this season as a defensive force, helping transform a Utah Jazz defense that was worst in the league last season into one of the best this year after the All-Star break.

Gobert: Lottery Sixth Man of the Year

Utah’s Rudy Gobert was the most valuable sixth man on a lottery team this season. Every team searches for players that can come off the bench and contribute without a drop off in production. Even lottery teams. As The Lottery Mafia award circuit continues, it’s important to recognize the top options on the bottom-dwelling teams that, for the most part, entered the game off...

Rudy Gobert: Most Improved Lottery Player

Buried on the bench for much of last season, Rudy Gobert became one of the league’s most dominant defensive big men, and helped the Utah Jazz finish the season as one of the league’s hottest teams. The rise of Rudy Gobert this season was a surprise to many around the league, though if you ask some who cover the Utah Jazz (such TLM Podcast All-Star guest Amar of SLC Dunk) you’ll...

Andrew Wiggins really likes to posterize Utah’s Gobert

So Utah’s Rudy Gobert ego might be in shambles right now courtesy of Wolves’ Andrew Wiggins. As if getting posterized once was bad enough, Gobert got smashed on twice by Wiggins in the same game and the last dunk was simply filthy. Check out the big man getting abused by Wiggins.

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. The Utah Jazz on the other hand, were able to open valuable minutes for up-and-coming...
