    How do you pass 'between the leg' as the headline says? Headline dumbs out yet again in the DN. Regardless, the ESL teacher of the headline writer is somewhat proud of her student.

    When Detroit brought Boban Marjanovic into the game, I found it incredible that Rudy had to actually look up at the guy he was guarding.

    At 7' 3" tall and almost 300 pounds, Boban Marjanovic, is two inches taller than Rudy. He also has a wingspan (7'8") that almost matches Rudy's (7'9"). While he is not as athletic as Rudy, the guy is huge!

    Rudy's play has been spectacular. I can't believe the Jazz finally have the great center they needed so badly for so many years.

    Considering the level where Gobert could be at next year, I wouldn't trade him for any other center in the league. A few more pounds of muscle and a go-to shot around the basket would take him to the next level. And that's a scary thought for the rest of the league!

    Hayward is absolutely crazy if he leaves this team. Gobert is an absolute beast at just 24 (and getting better by leaps and bounds) and no other team in the league has a player like that locked up. Gobert makes a massive impact not only defensively but offensively (stats prove it).

    As the Jazz get the right offense around Gobert in the years to come...they will be in contention as the Warriors, Spurs, and Cavaliers age out.

    Mark it down.

    Other players obviously notice what a nightmare it is to play against Gobert and may consider the reality that it would be better to play with him. I don't think it out of the realm of possibilities that he could attract talent as he is unmatched in his abilities at just 24.
