This Tuesday, on the occasion of the traditional day dedicated to the media, Rudy Gobert, new resident of the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise, spoke about his new environment.
The 2022-2023 NBA season is getting closer. And this Tuesday was a day traditionally dedicated to the media. Rudy Gobert thus expressed himself. The Frenchman had the opportunity to discuss his new franchise at length, namely the Minnesota Timberwolves. Moreover, on this subject, the 2.16m French pivot, reigning Olympic and European vice-champion, even said he was “very excited to open a new chapter” in his career. The former resident of the Utah Jazz also confided that he saw “no limit in what can accomplish” this brand new team in this prestigious Basketball League. Before saying much more, in remarks reported by theAFP “I am excited about this new adventure, about the very talented team and about what we can do. The most important thing for me is to keep growing, to be the best leader possible and of course to win. »
“I know I can make others better”
In Minnesota, he will discover a new system of play and will then form a duo of interiors with the star Karl-Anthony Towns: “In Utah, we very often played with four shooters around me. But I’ve always liked playing with a big guy, because I like to pass the ball. I can find (outside) players too, set up screens… I know I can make other people better. We talked a lot with (coach) Chris Finch, about what I can bring. I intend to be the best possible on both sides of the field, he will know how to make it all work. Whether attacking or defending, I already like the way he wants to use me. The number 27, now 30 years old and triple best defender in the NBA (2018, 2019, 2021), was transferred at the beginning of last July, as part of an exchange. His former formation received five players (Beverley since gone to the Lakers, Beasley, Vanderbilt, Bolmaro and Kessler), without forgetting also, for the next few years, a total of four first-round picks.
