PJ Tucker takes shot at Rudy Gobert for winning Defensive Player of the Year
Monday was not a good night for the Houston Rockets on social media or at the NBA Awards show.
Star guard James Harden came in second place in MVP voting, losing to Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Houston Rockets’ Twitter account did not take that result well.
The saltiness continued with PJ Tucker taking a shot Rudy Gobert after he won Defensive Player of the Year. After Gobert won the award, Tucker posted a note on his Instagram Story saying “Really … if you cry enough” and included some face palm emojis.

That seems to be a reference to Gobert crying after being snubbed for the All-Star Game, which is something Warriors players took shots at him for. It seems other NBA players haven’t forgotten and are still making jokes at his expense.
