Some of the same people who said Favors and Gobert couldn't make up for Kanter's defense are saying F/G can make up for Kaminsky's. Hmmm...

Andy Larsen

All-Defensive voting released. Rudy Gobert got his 5 first-team votes @Aaron Falk, @Jody Genessy, @Brian Windhorst, @Bill Simmons, & Scott Lauer.

David Thorpe

When I hear this is a "4 player draft", I think Nurkic, Capella, Antetokounmpo, Gobert, Drummond, Dray Green, K Thompson, K Leonard, etc.

Jody Genessy

I need to go check Rudy Gobert's Twitter feed to see if he's still feeding until he's eaten everything.

Andy Larsen

I'd probably have Andrew Bogut as my 1st team All-Defensive center, Rudy Gobert 2nd team. DeAndre Jordan 5th team or so.

Jody Genessy

If there were a third-team NBA All-Defense, Rudy Gobert would be on it. He received the 11th most votes, including five for the first team.

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert didn't make an all-NBA defensive team? interesting

Sam Amick

The league insisted that Gobert was a center only, while Duncan could get in as a forward though. Case in point. twitter.com/squaredK2/stat…

Jessica Camerato

Next 5 in voting who didn't make NBA All-Defensive Teams: Rudy Gobert, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Avery Bradley,Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Chad Ford

Rudy Gobert, Derrick Favors & Towns? Those Utah fans are praying folks ... twitter.com/Evilcolenevil/…

Ryan McDonald

In regard to Rudy Gobert's tweet, dare I say, "touche"?
