Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Rudy Gobert wins his 3rd DPOY award | Utah Jazz






Rudy Gobert, the Stifle Tower, the French Rejection, the kid from Saint-Quentin, is now a three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year.

The Utah Jazz center was named the league’s top defender FRIDAY night, beating out Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons and Golden State’s Draymond Green for the prestigious honor.

“I feel like I have this responsibility every night,” Gobert said recently. “I come in every single night trying to be the best that I can be for this team and anchor this team defensively …”


Gobert was a force for the Jazz all season long, statistically one of the finest defensive seasons in NBA history. The All-Star center ranked:

No. 1 in total rebounds (960)

No. 1 in defensive rebounds (720)


No. 1 in blocks (190)

No. 1 in defensive win shares (5.2)

No. 1 in defensive rating (100.6)


“The things that Rudy does are unique, and he’s a stabilizing force, particularly on the defensive end,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.

Gobert previously won Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2018 and 2019. He is also a four-time NBA All-Defensive First Team selection (2017-2020).

Gobert is the second Jazzman to ever win the DPOY trophy. The late Mark Eaton won the award in 1985 and 1989.
