    Gobert gets a 12 minute video, while Jokic only gets a 2 minute mixtape for being the MVP lol

    • SXUTH

      If Ben Simmons/Draymond won DPOY their views would be half a million by now and if the MVP was Cp3/Curry/Embiid/Giannis the highlight video would have anywhere from half a mil to two or tens of millions of views. Casuals don't know basketball

    • SXUTH

      I mean look at the views on both videos, it's apparent that the casual fans ain't liking either pick

    Draymond or Simmons should be DPOY, the amount of times he gets cooked up is insane and he is just blocks which u think he averages like 3 at least blocks a game but has only on average 1.8 more blocks than Draymond per game.

    He is not just "tall" ..his timing to start the block is crazy. Rudy "not in my house" Gobert

  • Dark Knight
    Dark Knight

    I've seen a guy record 376 blocks in one season and not get DPOY but this guy has 3?!

    • SXUTH

      @Dark Knight what you aren't getting is that defense was never just measured in blocks and steals anyways and Gobert could guard damn near anyone in the league this year so that's the definition of a DPOY. If voting for DPOYs was based on comparing their stats to the past, no one would win anything

    • Dark Knight
      Dark Knight

      @Choi Jihyeog the guy I'm talking about was blocking dunks and 3p buzzer beaters from Jordan. That's more impressive than saying Gobert blocked 286 less shots cuz they were scared of him lol

    • Choi Jihyeog
      Choi Jihyeog

      You can block more when people try it cause they think they can pass you. But if you are really good, players don't try on you... Like simmons don't try against Rudy, he's afraid :')

  • StatsAintFax

    Remember the good old days of 4.7bpg and 1.9spg wasn't good enough to get you DPOY! Now 40 steals and 190 blocks gets it for you no problem SMH

    • SXUTH

      Cry somewhere else "statsaintfax"

    Is it true he as only 2 all star games selections? And yet 3 DPOY?

    • Dan Calderon
      Dan Calderon

      Accurate. All-Star is hard for him because his team isn't for casuals, and most people look at just points per game with lack of understanding on his impact on the floor.

  • kyle anderson
    kyle anderson

    In a game that is mostly played on the perimeter a center wins DPOY. Instead of Ben Simmons who actually guards the best players on the other team.

    In a world of flying centers, running everywhere on court and scoring 3pt shots like point guards, the "old school" way of playing basket from Rudy (priority to defense, blocks and dunks) won some credit year after year.

    BEN SIMMONS SHOULD HAVE WON he can guard 1-5, clamps everyone down, ben scored 42 points against gobert all in the paint lol

    • SXUTH

      @Orgasmic Orange I agree with you, I was just asking to making sure. Going 1-7 and 3-9 against someone isn't scoring effortlessly the way they describe it 😂

    • Orgasmic Orange
      Orgasmic Orange

      @SXUTH His 42 point game against the Jazz. I heard it was 1-7, but even if it was 3-9 it still doesn't justify that guy's statement.

    • SXUTH

      @Orgasmic Orange I heard it was 3/9 which game you referring to?

    • Orgasmic Orange
      Orgasmic Orange

      He was 1-7 when he was guarded by gobert that game. Royce was guarding him the rest of the match. Your point is not valid.

  • Trevor123322

    Man they need a highlight reel of the amount of players that drive into the paint see Gobert and literally turn around, haha. Gets me every time!

    LeBron can't be stopped the GOAT is going to be finals MVP 2021 ! LeBron getting his team new rings soon, fans very lucky to see the Greatest in all NBA history LeBron the King and Finals MVP for 2021 ! LeBron needs to sale the flops better, few more Referee calls would have sealed the playoffs for Lakers. NBA needs a full Recount for Laker games, plus the fouls refs missed, so Lakers can be the Champs 2021 !

    @jeff tanof yes the african american hollywood celebrities do lighten their skin color. Several articles mentioned they use a orange peeling lightening lotion from japan which easily turns their dark skin light.This is not really surprising these days it seems everybody changes their appearance,they should be honest about it though.

    isn't putting your arm on the opponent stomach a foul? everytime he blocks a shot, he does it

    • SXUTH

      No, basketball is a physical sport

  • Duffman

    I'm glad he won it for the 3rd time, maybe that'll remind teams that you can still have a traditional big man defend the paint and offensively he plays the pick and roll very well so he doesn't need to be a perimeter threat, it's hard to defend when a 7'1 258 lbs center is running to the rim.

    • Duffman

      @SXUTH When I watch Rudy play he reminds me of Dikembe Mutumbo, He was a lanky 7'2 245 Center that was doing the same thing in the 90s with a defensive range all the way out to the perimeter and was quick enough to get back into the paint utilizing his speed and wingspan for blocking shots and nearly averaged 3 blocks per game in his career. Highly regarded as the best blocker in NBA history :) I don't think it's a matter of stretching the bigs, it's more that today's bigs lack endurance and conditioning to play end to end basketball. This season only 7 Centers played past 30 minutes. Something is wrong with their training and unfortunately the "perimeter" mentality is messing up their designed role of protecting the middle. Which Lakers exploited last year. going inside with AD quite often (he shot above .800+ inside)

    • SXUTH

      I mean Rudy is too unique for today, he's almost unmovable in the paint and very hard to shake on the perimeter and has footwork out of this world on defense. Still doesn't mean you can survive without stretching bigs today, just shows how great Rudy is as a player in this era
