SALT LAKE CITY — What would it be like spending time with Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert at his house?
YouTube channel Deux Nuits Avec has the details.
The channel takes its host to an athlete’s home — as well as the surrounding community — for two days, and the Frenchman Gobert was the subject of its latest video edition.
The all-access home tour includes a 1-on-1 interview with Gobert’s personal chef, showing off the basketball court inside his home and the swimming pool that’s under construction and some time responding to fan mail.
There’s even a little downtime for video games and a table tennis match, as well as a quiz for the Jazz center.
Former Salt Lake Stallions signing with NFL teams
It’s been a little over a week since the Alliance of American Football suspended football operations. Fortunately for some players from Utah’s AAF franchise, the Salt Lake Stallions, they already know where they will be playing next.
Four Stallions have already signed with NFL teams, including two former University of Utah linemen:
- Offensive tackle Jeremiah Poutasi, with the Arizona Cardinals
- Offensive guard Salesi Uhatafe, with the Washington Redskins
- Defensive end Karter Schult, with the Minnesota Vikings
- Wide receiver De’Mornay Pierson-El, with the Oakland Raiders
In addition, linebacker Greer Martini is reportedly working out for the Vikings, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky. Tight end Nick Truesdell was in New York meeting with the Jets and is visiting Tampa Bay on Wednesday, according to NFL Draft Diamonds. Draft Diamonds also reported cornerback Cody Brown is visiting Jacksonville.
And finally …Comment on this story
A video of a young Utah Jazz fan named Evie recently went viral that showed the upset girl not wanting to go to bed. She instead wanted to watch Jazz star Donovan Mitchell.
Mitchell noticed and gave her family free tickets to Utah’s final home regular-season game on Tuesday night. The Jazz shared video of Mitchell giving his shoes to Evie before the game. Mitchell delivered on the court, too, tying his career high with 46 points in the 118-108 win over Denver.
Evie’s father, Mitch Tulane, shared his appreciation after.
