Jazz Center Rudy Gobert Goes Off On Referees

Published

Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert has had enough of the officiating in the NBA, and isn’t hiding his opinion on the matter.

Gobert took aim at the officiating during Utah’s loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday night, specifically a call on Gobert with 3.2 seconds remaining in the game as Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade was driving to the basket.

“I just want it to be consistent at one point” Gobert said, according to Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune.

“Every night is the same s—. Every night has been the same s—. If you call something one way, you’ve got to call it the other way. Once they start doing that, I’m going to have a little more respect. I’m just tired of it. Every game is the same. Donovan got pushed harder right before and he’s not Dwyane Wade, it’s fine, but just respect us as competitors, as players. I sacrifice everything to do this job. I’d like to be respected as a basketball player.”

According to The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie, the Suns actually prefer Murray State point guard Ja Morant, who had an impressive breakout year in 2018-2019, over Williamson.

Morant became the first player in school history to be named a first-team Associated Press All-American.

Point guard is the biggest position of need for the rebuilding Suns, but passing on Zion could mean passing on a bonafide superstar to pair with Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker.

The thought of a frontcourt featuring Williamson and Ayton would instantly elevate the Suns.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward, and MVP candidate, Paul George ruffled the feathers of the Portland Trail Blazers for opting to dunk the ball as opposed to dribbling out the clock in their Game 3 victory.

While George made no friends with the Blazers, who visibly took issue with the dunk, Thunder head coach Billy Donovan had no issue with what took place.

“My feeling was they probably shot a shot,” Donovan said, according to Ben Golliver of the Washington Post. “Paul kind of went in and dunked it. Both teams played the game all the way out.”

George declined to comment on the dunk in the post-game presser.
