Gobert addressed the snub Friday, and got emotional while talking about it.
There are a few ways to interpret Gobert breaking down during the interview. Some might look at it as Gobert being passionate about his job. He’s put up strong numbers this season, averaging 15 points and 12.8 rebounds per game. He’s also been a force defensively. After putting in all the work required to play at an All-Star level, he missed out on making the All-Star team. It crushed him.
Some have suggested Gobert talking about his mom may have played a role.
Gobert hasn’t responded to those taunts yet, though he definitely saw them.
The big man followed that up with another subtle dig while speaking with the media after Friday’s game, calling back the forward’s very unfortunate use of Snapchat a few years ago.
It’s possible Gobert is waiting until the Jazz and Warriors meet on the court to fully settle the issue. He won’t have to wait long. The two teams play again Feb. 12. We’ll see if either side walks off the court in tears.
