Passive-aggressive behavior is all the rage in the NBA these days, and Rudy Gobert is the latest to join the fray.
The Utah Jazz center hasn’t had the greatest offseason. In addition to watching Gordon Hayward leave Utah to join the Boston Celtics, Gobert has sat and watched the Western Conference somehow become even more loaded. And if Kyrie Irving’s trade request eventually is granted, the Jazz’s path to success in the West might get even tougher.
Irving’s desire to leave the Cavs reportedly is rooted in his quest to become the focal point of a team, a role LeBron James currently occupies in Cleveland. In a tweet Wednesday, Gobert appeared to take a shot at that mentality.
Considering how vague this is, it’s unclear who exactly Gobert is directing the tweet at.
It’s probably Irving, but it also could be Hayward, although one could argue that in joining the Celtics, Hayward is putting himself in a better position to win.
Considering he currently plays in Salt Lake City, it wouldn’t be shocking if Gobert still is a little salty toward his former teammate.
