Warriors players take ruthless shots at Rudy Gobert for crying over All-Star snub

No player in the NBA is more upset over not being selected to the All-Star Game than Rudy Gobert, and to say the Golden State Warriors have no sympathy for the big man would be an understatement.

Gobert was overcome with emotion while speaking about his All-Star Game snub with reporters on Friday, and he got so upset that he teared up and needed to end the interview.

The reigning NBA Defensive Player of the Year is not alone in thinking he was overlooked for the All-Star Game, but Warriors veterans Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala clearly felt he overreacted. Green, who was also not named an All-Star, said he supposes he should cry now, too.

Iguodala appeared to mock Gobert in similar fashion.

One thing that should be kept in mind is that Gobert lost out on a potential $1 million bonus by not making the All-Star team.

Gobert is averaging 15.0 points, 12.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game. His 65 percent field goal percentage leads the league, and he believes his All-Star snub is evidence that the NBA does not value defensive ability enough. Jazz coach Quin Snyder and some of Gobert’s Jazz teammates have already expressed their disappointment in Gobert’s omission.
