Can Rudy Gobert make it in the NBA? 

Post#1 » by BHBMAN » Tue Jun 4, 2013 9:20 pm

I've seen him play, and he reminds me of Shawn Bradley. But he might be another Hasheem Thabeet. My question is will he be a starter one day, or will he come off the bench for 10-15 minuets? He has talent, but he might just be a bench warmer.

I see another Alexis Ajinca in this guy. Very raw offensively and there's a pretty good chance he turns out to be another NBA washout. NBA just doesn't give raw European players a chance to develop...especially centers. He would be better off staying in Europe and trying to make a career...and then maybe one day NBA becomes an options...

Yeah I think he'll make it. Don't think he's anything real special, but I think he'll be a rotation player, probably a journeyman 4th or 5th big.

Safe to say that Rudy has not only made it, but is a defensive force to be reckoned with.

I know who I'm not hiring as a GM when I purchase a team...

I don't know about his strength ..... I worry about him on the defensive end.
