    He’ll be fine. I’ve always said for him and others too that players that are more than ready athletically hit a sophomore wall instead of a rookie wall which is mental more than physical. Now that he got it out of his system and has a lot more help, it can only get better.

    MVP is claiming that consecutive all NBA center Rudy Gobert is something like the 7th best center in the NBA, because he can't get out of the second round of the playoffs or something. The list of players he gives as "better" have rarely even MADE the playoffs.

    It's just a precursor of the trash we are going to see once the Jazz bandwagon gets going this year.

    I never said because he can't get out of the playoffs. Read one more time, I said he has limited offensive game, was exposed in playoffs and until he improves it I can't consider him top 3 center. Not when he had worst +/- of the Jazz in last 4 out of 5 games vs Rockets.

    No it was not. He had the worst +/- and we did much better with Favors on the floor.

    He did not outplay Capela in first matchup, look at all the data you want Capela did better . Second series Capela was sick and mostly non factor and yet Rudy was terrible in that series as well and we did better with Favors at center than him.

    It is just strange how you guys can't see Rudy's limitations which were on full display in Rockets series. I love Rudy, he is one of my favorite players, yet I expect him to improve his post up game and midrange game and FT shooting before I would be completely happy with him. Now you all attacking me like I am committing some kind of act of blasphemy by actually pointing to his flaws.
    Do you all honestly think Rudy is a perfect center and has nothing to improve in his game?

    I expect that from him. He’s trolling hard.

    Not worried, I said many times last year I didn’t think he was in a slump, just that it’s hard when your the only scorer on the team. This will help him be a leader and get experience playing with other scorers.

    Yep, both years gobert was better statistically than capela in the playoffs.

    2 years ago
    Capela: 12.7 points per game. 11.6 rebounds. 2.1 blocks. 66% from the field

    Rudy: 13.2. 10.7. 2.3. 66%.
    Close but I give the edge to the all NBA DPOY

    It's strange how you judge a players value based off how he played against 1 particular team.

    He must be the greatest of all time! The only other time in 7 years he got into the playoffs, he GOT swept. His playoff record is crap.

    I’m baffled how you’re (MVP) making these arguments against Gobert while also making vehement arguments for AK. The funny thing is is that, mentally, AD, Cousins, and KAT all have a lot of similar psyches to AK.

    I agree. Great that Pops wants Donovan to facilitate as well as create for himself. That's what he needs to work on, so playing for USA should help. And with the big names dropping out, perhaps he can recruit for our MLE slot next season.
