Jazz star Rudy Gobert trolls fan who drew him

Rudy Gobert, Jazz

Utah Jazz All-Star center Rudy Gobert responded to a tweet on Friday that featured a drawing of him.

Unfortunately for the artist, Gobert wasn’t impressed at all.

Whoever the artist is gave it the good old college try. However, Rudy Gobert is obviously not a fan of the drawing and clearly won’t be framing the picture at his house.

Gobert and the Jazz lost to the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the 2020 playoffs in heartbreaking fashion. Not only did Utah blow a 3-1 series lead, but Mike Conley’s game-winning attempt at the buzzer in Game 7 went in and out.

A two-time Defensive Player of the Year, Gobert finished the 2019-20 season with averages of 15.1 points, 13.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks. He also shot 69.3 percent from the field and 63.0 percent from the free-throw line while racking up 49 double-doubles.

The Jazz have some decisions to make this offseason after losing in the first round for the second straight year. Utah fell to the Houston Rockets in 2019 in five games.

While the Jazz aren’t going to trade Gobert or superstar shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, the front office in Utah may have to move some other pieces around to get more scoring next to Mitchell. However, it is worth noting that the absence of Bojan Bogdanovic in the playoffs really hurt the Salt Lake City team.

The Jazz are expected to sign Mitchell to a lucrative rookie-scale extension whenever the offseason begins.
