‘It’s just noise,’ Rudy Gobert screams at Draymond Green’s criticism

The Jazz’s France international pivot spoke about the (many) negative comments about him inside Golden State.

Rudy Gobert and Draymond Green won’t go on vacation together… NBA three-peat guard, the first nominee is one of the main candidates to win again this season, double MVP and 2020 Guard of the Year winners Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee), Mikal Bridges (Phoenix) and Jaren Jackson Jr. (Memphis). Green too, though Golden State’s big man has only played half of his team’s games (34 of 60). Taking that kind of reward is a bit rash, especially since he’s been unable to find his way to the floor for weeks. It may be worth looking in this direction to understand Green’s hostility to the international pivot tricolor. Unless it’s just plain contempt for European players…

In any case, this hostility exists. When you hand him a mic and talk about Gobert’s case, Draymond Green exemplifies it, averaging 15.7 points, 14.8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game this season. Most importantly, it makes Utah one of the best defenses in the American League. Its impact cannot be measured in numbers alone. Whatever it is: The combative Green, the emotional leader of the Warriors, has been rubbing shoulders with Giant Picard again and again in recent years (2015, 2017, 2018) three-time NBA champions and a 2022 title race over the shoulder. “Don’t quote me and him‘, which he launched during last weekend’s All-Star break, having already mocked the Frenchman ahead of the All-Star break.

“The louder the noise, the harder it is to take these people seriously. »

Rudy Gobert

Obviously, this isn’t the first time… Asked during a press conference before facing Dallas tonight, 29-year-old Rudy Gobert would prefer to increase his height. Not without big scratches…”It’s just noise to me…when people talk about you, in any terminology, it’s because you’re right. I will continue to do my best, on and off the field, for my team.The more some people try to discredit me and my team, it means we’re right“, he asserted. And continued:The louder the noise, the harder it is to take these people seriously. It’s a shame to only use it for shows like this when you have access to such a platform…it doesn’t make anyone speak ill of others…when you’re good at what you do When things go wrong, you don’t need to criticize anyone. The world will recognize who you are and what you do. This is my state of mind. It’s just noise.»

Recall Rudy Gobert, who went through the Cholet Basket formation before heading to the US and was selected 27th in the 2013 draft, hence the number 27 he wears in the NBA, making his third All-Star last weekend race. Along with Donovan Mitchell, he will try next June to give the Salt Lake City club its first league title in history. The Jazz aren’t big favorites, but as you can imagine, this outsider status isn’t the type to quell enthusiasm, the ambitions of Olympic vice-champion Rudy Gobert…
