Rudy Gobert responds to fan asking Jazz to bring home a title, says ‘it’s coming’

Jazz, Rudy Gobert

A Utah Jazz supporter sent out the ultimate challenge to reigning Defensive Player of the Year winner Rudy Gobert, to which the 7-foot-1 big man gladly obliged.

A Jazz fan that goes by the username @amccullough105 took to Twitter to randomly share his desire to have Utah win an NBA title somewhere down the line. He got the shock of his life when Gobert himself responded to his request.

Obviously, Gobert and company still have their sights set on winning the NBA title. While the recently-concluded season did not pan out as the Jazz had initially hoped for, it is clear that this has done little to diminish Gobert’s title aspirations.

For his part, the 26-year-old did everything he could for the Jazz this season, putting up career-high numbers across the board with averages of 15.9 points (on 66.9 percent shooting!), 12.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals, and 2.3 blocks in 31.8 minutes per contest. Moreover, Gobert exhibited his durability yet again, playing in all but one of the team’s 82-game regular season slate.

Gobert, who will be 27 next season, will be entering his seventh year in the league. While his development over the past few years have been striking, it is not impossible to think that he has yet to hit his prime. As a matter of fact, it would not be surprising if he plays at an even higher level next year.

The Jazz look like a team that will require a few upgrades in the summer, but Gobert’s potential further development will definitely be something that will work in their favor.
