Directly or indirectly, Rudy Gobert has been more than willing to share his feelings about this wild NBA offseason.
The Utah Jazz center took issue with the way now-former Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward left for the Boston Celtics in free agency. Hayward, according to Gobert, could have handled his exit differently, with Gobert apparently not liking the way Hayward’s final decision played out with July 4 drama.
Gobert also took an apparent jab at Hayward and Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving earlier in the summer as rumors centering on the two players swirled. So it probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Gobert was back at it Tuesday shortly after the Celtics acquired Irving from the Cavs in a blockbuster trade that sent Isaiah Thomas to Cleveland.
With the simple push of a button, Gobert trolled everyone involved — most notably Thomas — by retweeting a tweet Thomas sent when he openly recruited Hayward to the Celtics by pointing out how many championships Boston had compared to Utah and the Miami Heat, the two other teams after Hayward this summer.
