Patrick Beverley, Anthony Edwards throw shade at Rudy Gobert

Rudy Gobert is the reigning NBA Defensive Player of the Year and has won the award three times, but Patrick Beverley was openly unimpressed with the Utah Jazz star on Wednesday night.

Gobert vs. Karl Anthony-Towns was the biggest matchup to watch during Utah’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but Gobert did not exclusively guard his fellow center. The Jazz moved the 7-footer around the floor a bit, which surprised Beverley. He threw some shade at Gobert after the game.

Timberwolves swingman Anthony Edwards also had some unflattering things to say about Gobert.

The Jazz beat the T-Wolves in a 136-104 blowout. That’s probably all that matters to Gobert, who scored 13 points on 4-of-4 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds. Towns led Minnesota with 22 points, which clearly wasn’t enough.

Beverley is one of the better defensive players in the NBA as well, so he feels qualified to speak on the subject. Still, it’s not the best look to criticize your opponent after your team was just dominated. Gobert is certainly used to opposing players ripping on him, but we can’t imagine he was too bothered by what Beverley and Edwards had to say.
