I remember being really high on Gobert before the draft. I mean his shot blocking, his length. He seemed like he had a really good feel for the game. And we really needed a C, although that should really factor into the decision. I'm surprised Gobert went so low, so obviously our FO wasn't the only one who missed it. They was hoping that Snell would turn into Kawhi because he went to the same high school
They were drafting for the depature of Luol Deng. Joakim won DPOY for Gobert's rookie season.
Hmm I don't remember why I thought we needed a center then. Maybe I wasn't quite sold on Jo yet and he made a big leap that season?
