Rudy Gobert has been the subject of plenty of criticism in recent times, by media members like Shaquille O'Neal, current stars like LeBron James, and more. The Frenchman is having a great season with the Utah Jazz, playing great basketball, being considered the leading candidate to win the DPOY award for the third time in his career.
He has been playing great but people are always trying to find some flaws about him. Recently, Instagram account 'Ball Bound' shared a curious picture of Gobert and what he would be doing right now if he wasn't 7 ft 1 in. They edited Gobert's faces on a McDonald's employee's body.
"Rudy Gobert if he was 6'6..." They captioned the picture with.
This sparked a big debate for fans, who agreed with the post and others named more players that wouldn't be as good if it wasn't for their height.
Gobert is leading his Utah Jazz to the 1st position in the Western Conference with a 28-9 record, surprising everybody this season with their good game. He and Donovan Mitchell are expected to lead this squad to compete for important things and while more people try to bring them down, they get more inspired.
The Frenchman is one of the best defensive players in the league but it seems like people like to underestimate every single campaign.
