His highlight reel is like the defense version of a Jason Williams highlight reel-looks like the greatest PG ever.
I dont know, Gobert is maybe the best defensive big since Dwight, and even before the corona incident, i heard rumors of him being on the block, so if hes available via trade (not saying for us, but in general), i dont see how a guy with even less of an offensive game and a long injury history, would be considered untouchable
JI is a very nice piece to have, but i wouldnt say untouchable, and ill be in the minority and say hes not worthy of a max (yes i know he'll get one, but i dont think he should) right now because of the 2 issues i mentioned.
