    It occurred to me today that some Jazz fans still lack faith in Rudy. Some of you don't even consider him a candidate for most PPG on this team.

    So brothers and sisters of the JFC I humbly ask that you take a moment to appreciate our Jazz savior.

    Rudy Gobert-Bourgarel (born June 26, 1992) is a French professional basketball player for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He also represents the French national basketball team in the international competitions. Standing at 7 ft 1 in (2.16 m) tall with a wingspan of 7 ft 9 in (2.36 m) long, he plays at the center position. He was the NBA blocks leader in the 2016–17 season, and was named an All-NBA Team member that season as well.

    Remember the name:

    Rudy is the main part of the Jazz's defense. He frightens opponents from even attempting shots in his domain:

    Rudy is working hard this off-season, and when next season starts you bet he'll be ready to roll with his soldiers.

    If you love Rudy this is the place to show some love. If not:

    Ball not in Gordon's hand but in Rubio's?

    I expect major changes.

    I don't think he will be the leader in PPG, but that doesn't mean I don't think he is the best player on the team and the Jazz wouldn't be in the position they are without him. Rudy is the man on this team, no doubt about it.

    This is the only church I would ever attend, btw! ;)

    Real basketball fans knew that Rudy was the superstar of the team. We just sucked up to Haywood to make him feel good to try and get him stay.

    No player worship for me.
    How did that work out with the Burke and Hayward threads?

    I'll just appreciate his game and attitude and fire, although the links, pics and videos are much appreciated.

    I understand your apprehension, you've been led astray by false idols before. But let the long arms of Rudy embrace you and you will see the light.

    Even before Haircut left, we were very clearly building our roster around Rudy. The emphasis on length, athleticism and defense at every position was all based on his presence in the middle.

    Really excited to see his continued development. He is looking yoked on insta.

    **** off with churches. We had threads like this created for Burke, Hayward, Kanter etc... it all ended bad!!!! You all will jinx it!!!!! Enough with this nonsense. Just enjoy Rudy kicking *** and becoming the best center in NBA and keep churches and gods away from his name.

    They were false gods. Gobert is the one true God.

    Uh oh! Someone has a thought and opinion different than yours! Time to call the SNOWFLAK police

    How about this concept, stay off of Twitter if your delicate political sensibilities get hurt when a basketball player has an opinion on something?
