When Rudy Gobert called out an unnamed teammate or teammates for playing selfishly, who was he referring to? Since I have inside sources in the Rudy Gobert camp (let’s just say that it never hurts to make friends with every sommelier you ever meet), I can shed some light on the situation in the form of an easy-to-use list.
-Joe Johnson AKA “Iso Joe”: Being in the Jazz system has erased some of his more blatant tendencies, but he still likes to score and not pass
-Rodney Hood AKA Joe Johnson 2.0: Not a distributor either, looks to score when he gets the ball because he is enamored with his own scoring ability
-Joe “The Big Didgeridoo” Ingles and Boris “The Big Croissant” Diaw: Both of them selfishly pad their assist totals by pretending to care about passing and ball movement.
-Gordon Hayward: The definition of a me-first star.
-Jeff Withey: Has five total assists this year. No more needs to be said.
