RUDY GOBERT RUMORS & GOSSIP

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. The lanky frenchman seemed...

Gobert: Lottery Sixth Man of the Year

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...

Did the Nuggets lose the Rudy Gobert trade?

Rudy Gobert emerged in the second half of this season as a top-five defensive player. He was among the league leaders in nearly every rim protection statistic, from blocks to opposing field goal percentage at the rim. All signs point to him being, at least, a top-flight center in the league for years to come.He'll be doing this for the Utah Jazz, but he could have done it for the...

VIDEO: Will Rudy Gobert win Most Improved Player?

Rudy Gobert didn't win Defensive Player of the Year, but he's up for another award: Most Improved Player. The competition for the award is fierce: There's Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls, who carried the Bulls in Derrick Rose's absence. There's Draymond Green, who emerged as a two-way force and will more than likely receive a max contract this summer. There's also Khris Middleton...

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...
