Rudy Gobert played Pokemon GO during a summer league game
Much like the Pokemon games developed for the Nintendo Gameboy, Pokemon GO has become a sensation all over the globe in the last week or so. The application is inspiring people to go outside and roam the streets to progress through the game. Users are praising it for increasing their exercise level, and in more negative news, armed robbers are using the game to lure their victims.
It appears as though the Frenchman was playing Pokemon GO from the sideline during one of his team’s NBA Summer League games when a wild Spearow appeared in front of him. There is no doubt that Gobert attended the event to show support to the young talent on the Jazz roster and assess his future teammates, but it appears that his duty as a Pokemon trainer is just as important.
Earlier in the day, he had tweeted about his excitement for catching ‘em all.
