Rudy Gobert completely disrespects Joel Embiid
Can we all agree Rudy Gobert is arguably the most annoying player in the NBA? The guy is a role player who gets paid max dollars. If I were him, I would stop running my mouth all the time. All the NBA Twitter nerds keep voting for him to win defensive player of the year too.
You go around and ask NBA players who they think the best defenders are in the league, and his name is never mentioned. Anyways, this is what Rudy Gobert had to say to all of his “haters”.
“People love to take shots at me for no reason. I never take shots on anyone, I just do my job. I think when you when you’re the best in the world at something, people become insecure.”
So, where’s the disrespect you ask? First of all, Gobert is not the best at anything. Secondly, he’s completely disrespecting Joel Embiid; who is arguably the best center in the NBA. Embiid is also the best defender at his position. We just don’t get to see it on a nightly basis because he’s asked to score 30+ a night. Meanwhile, Gobert just sets screens on the other end.
Don’t listen to the Twitter basketball nerds. They don’t know anything about the sport. To them, Gobert is the best defender in the NBA. Newsflash, Gobert allowed Ben Simmons to score his career-high on him.
The sooner the NBA lets players decide awards, the sooner they hold any credibility. Every NBA player knows Embiid is a better defender than Gobert. In the end, Gobert will only be remembered for his idiotic decisions off the court.
