Jazz upset over Rudy Gobert All-Star snub

Rudy Gobert Jazz

The NBA All-Star reserves were announced on Thursday, and Rudy Gobert was among the most prominent snubs from the Western Conference. His coach and teammates are not happy about that.

Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder called the selection process “flawed” given Gobert’s omission.

Joe Ingles said Gobert was “robbed.”

Ricky Rubio questioned the omission and said it was an indication that defense is overlooked.

Along with Gobert, you could make a good All-Star case for the Clippers’ Tobias Harris. Karl-Anthony Towns and LaMarcus Aldridge are probably the players those two could replace.

Gobert, 26, is averaging 15.0 points, 12.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game. His 65 percent field goal percentage leads the league.
