Rudy Gobert stars in video game developed by team

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert is back blocking shots. This time in a video game the team made.

As if seeing Gobert punish opponents with his excellent rim protection in real life isn’t enough, the Jazz came up with the ‘Super Rudy Block’ game which allows gamers to play as the French big and swat away shots from different players in various levels.

Not only does the game have old-school graphics, but it also features commentary from Utah’s play-by-play announcer Craig Bolerjack.

Meanwhile, Jody Genessy of Deseret News offered an interesting take on who should be Gobert’s final opponent, someone that Jazz fans are familiar with and would surely love blocking.

Rudy Gobert — often called the Stifle Tower for his incredible wingspan and standing reach — led the league in rejections with 2.6 blocks per game last season, so the video game is undoubtedly a fitting tribute to his defensive acumen.

The 25-year-old Frenchman is expected to lead the Jazz this season and for the years to come, especially now that Gordon Hayward is gone. However, although the team expects him to improve his offensive game, they certainly don’t want him to forget the best thing that he brings to the table.
