Rudy Gobert’s postseason plans came to a halt earlier this month after a second-round loss to the Rockets. Disappointing for sure, but defeat at a sport you are paid millions to play can be quelled easily by laying out on a yacht and soaking in the sun:

And when Rudy does go under rage spells from thinking about James Harden baiting for calls he can just round up some children at an event and end their dreams. It’s a win-win — he violently spikes basketballs and the kids go crazy.

On the newsy front, Gobert does have reason to be quite happy this week as he was named on the All-Defensive first team alongside Anthony Davis, Victor Oladipo, Robert Covington, and Jrue Holiday.

Gobert was voted to the NBA All-Defensive First Team for the second year in a row, as selected by a global panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters. The 7-1 center from France earned 192 points, including 94 First Team votes. Davis, a two-time NBA All-Defensive Second Team selection, makes his debut on the First Team. The 6-11 forward/center received the second-most points (163) and First Team votes (73), behind Gobert.
