    oh no he won't have 100 fucking million in his bank account by the age he expected :/ bro this is about fucking basketball. I would've rather had Gobert on my team this season. KAT is not a top 3 big man in the game. Period. "Who would you rather give the superma-" irrelevant. Who has the most potential for growth has nothing to do with who had the better season. It's kinda pathetic to hear Kendrick value individual numbers over winning.

    I love how Rachel thinks she knows what she’s talking about 🤦‍♂️

    Rachel talks too damn much! Let the guys make their COMPLETE point before offering input. They played in the league.

    It all depends who else you have on your team. If you have scorers already? No way in hell you gonna pick KAT over Gobert. No one in the entire NBA impacts defense in the key more. People who normally drive to the basket straight up cower and back off when he's there. Lol nobody does that against KAT. This dude can't even pronounce his name correctly he can fuck off.
    Now that said, if I don't have a strong scoring presence at another position? Yeah I'd probably take KAT. It all depends on what the team needs. In either case though, this pick is at least a difficult one to fight over. They both deserved it, Gobert just did a little more. He's 100% the reason for Utah's success, despite Donovan's sex appeal. Minnesota has the pieces for success, they just don't have the drive to win. KAT being a classic case.

    KAT is not a winner, a grinder, doesn't finish well, 4th quarter he disappears, horrible at passing, finding the open player or making opportunities for other players and himself. Decision making sucks. Lacks big time in the defense end, other bigs annihilate the dude. He can't take over a game or lead a team and with that bum coach his numbers will only drop. Kats potential and what he actually does on the court are 2 different things. He is NOT all-nba!!!

    Kendrick is a terrible pundit. He adds little to arguments and can't justify his decisions and thoughts in any convincing way.

    Rudy Gobert is why the league is so weak Dennis Rodman ain’t get offered that kind of money and he was better 😂

    ruben p

    (June 16, 2019 - 10:03 pm)

    He already got a big ass contract for nothing

    whenever I see Goburt' name i cant help rearranging the letters. to me his name is rub d yogurt

    Lol rudy's jazz win more than Kat's wolves and the talent difference isnt even that far

    Robin Anderson

    Neither Anthony Davis nor Karl Anthony Towns made the playoffs and neither their defensive nor offensive ratings were as good as Rudy. ‬

    (June 16, 2019 - 10:03 pm)

    Set the playoffs aside. Gobert still did more. Plain and simple. And this man is really using a popularity vote by fans as an argument? Lmao. It's not about who would you start your franchise with. It's about who was better between the 2 THIS YEAR. And that answer is Gobert.

    Rachel is right again about the way the NBA decides awards – However, the question at hand- who would you rather build a team around? Rudy Gobert or KAT? Rudy Gobert- guy is a defensive beast, and shows up every game- I Like KAT, but Jimmy Butler was right, he dogs it 1/2 the time- for a "franchise player" for the T-Wolves, KAT is inconsistant, sometimes great, often just meh- KAT isn't complete trash Like Andrew Wiggins is, but he's still already getting overpaid- the real truth? D Rose was a better player for the T-Wolves this season than KAT 1/2 the time, and D Rose got paid League Minimum

    Kemba and Lebron didn’t bring there team to the playoffs why did they make it then? Dudes a dumbass if you needed to win games in order to make all NBA then the all nba teams would look way different

    topspinaurelius

    (June 16, 2019 - 10:03 pm)

    Towns and Wiggins are typical number / stats builders and NOT winners, they will NEvER win NOTHING together since Wolves basically exhausted their salary cap by paying both of them Max dollars and neither one of them is an alpha

    They’re not gonna make it 2 separate awards stop fucking yapping about it Rachel

    Rudy Gobert is constantly underrated… oh well.

    emeldez16

    (June 16, 2019 - 10:03 pm)

    Gobert played better plan and simple everyone he got snubbed for that all star position everyone knows that

    RG

    (June 16, 2019 - 10:03 pm)

    You mean the guy who got his ass kicked by Jimmy Buckets and 3rd string players, along with the rest of the starters? No way I'm picking him to start my franchise. He doesn't want it bad enough, he's not driven, and he lacks effort on the defensive end. Give me Gobert any day of the week.

    Jorge Munoz

    (June 16, 2019 - 10:03 pm)

    I’ll take the guy with heart. Rudy, KAT is weak minded. They can’t even smell the playoffs with wiggings

    (June 16, 2019 - 10:03 pm)

    Rudy Goldberg 😂😂😂😂 He speared his way into an All NBA Team.

    Antonio Rivera

    (June 16, 2019 - 10:03 pm)

    KAT didnt deserve it lmao.

    I agree. Gobert over KAT. Minnesota wasn't even in the playoff picture
