Gobert was traded to the T-Wolves from the Utah Jazz in a monster trade with many moving pieces.
Some people said Gobert wasn’t worth all that the Jazz received, with some claiming that he’s not nearly as good as he makes himself out to be.
RUDY GOBERT POSTER. 😤😤😤

Perhaps Gobert heard all that chatter because he appears tuned in, hyped up, and ready to prove people wrong.
He is currently playing with his French basketball team in the EuroBasket tournament.
During a game against Slovenia, Gobert made his way to the basket and created a monster dunk.
It was an impressive poster that was made all the more incredible by the fact that he was dunking over none other than Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks.
Well played, Gobert.
Gobert will enter the Timberwolves with a pretty big chip on his shoulder.
He is definitely one of the most coveted centers in the league but there is no doubt that some people feel he is overrated, mostly because his team has struggled so much in the postseason for the last few years.
Gobert will be more than happy to remind people that he is something special and someone to never underestimate.
Don’t be shocked if you see a newly-energized and invigorated Gobert in Minnesota.
That passion, alongside the teammates he will now have, could be all he needs to have his best season in years.
Right now, Gobert is having a blast playing with for home country overseas.
But there is no doubt that he’s got one eye on the upcoming season.
