    Yeah, Jump shot is always useful for a basketball player, but don't forget Gobert major skill is intimidating in the paint.
    Gobert is not Memo.
    Still, i think he's working on his jump shot during the normal practice, here we're talking about 'extra' practice.
    Finally, i think that more balance and body control helps for shooting, too.

    He needs to practice his jump shot.

    I think his time would be better spent developing a jump shot. How good could the Jazz be if Gobert was a threat to hit a 17 footer from the elbow?

    The difference between the fake cupcake fights and false bravado you see in an NBA scuffle would change dramatically when someone who knows how to box lands a punch. The footwork and core training is only going to help him on the basketball court.

    In the video clip, Rudy looks like he knows exactly what he's doing.

    I sure wouldn't want to get punched by him.
