Gobert and Fournier are both 25 years old now, and not only have they reached the NBA, but they have developed into critical players for their respective teams. Gobert, a 7-foot-1 center, routinely contends for NBA Defensive Player of the Year honors and has helped the Utah Jazz challenge for a Western Conference playoff spot. Fournier, a 6-foot-7 wing, ranks as the Orlando Magic’s second-leading scorer. They’ve also become close friends. “We’ve known each other for a long, long time now,” Fournier said. “So it helps definitely. With the other French players, like [Nicolas] Batum or Tony [Parker], they are a little bit older than me, so we’ve only known each other since I’ve been in the NBA. With Rudy, we’ve known each other since before high school, before middle school. We just have good chemistry.”
Even though Isaac is still knocking off rust from his long injury layoff, his performances Friday and Saturday on defense impressed everyone. “It’s really difficult to score over him if he stays in front of you,” swingman Evan Fournier said. “He’s just so long and he has a quick reaction time. So it makes it really difficult to just get a shot off. And if you do, you really have to find another angle. In only two games, he’s doing a terrific job of being in passing lanes, just blocking shots and just being there.”
“I’m not that type of guy who’s going to think about stuff that I can’t control,” said Fournier, who was traded to the Magic during the 2014 offseason and has been the subject of trade rumors intermittently in the years since. “I’m going to have a regular day [Wednesday], and if something happens, then it happens. But I’m not going to worry about things that I don’t have control over. My parents are in town. We’re going to have a great day. I’m going to come in, do my treatment and get a massage. And if during my massage I get traded, then I’m out. It is what it is.”
