Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert looks ready to reach a new level of dominance.
Frenchman Rudy Gobert was no twig last season or in any recent campaign for the Utah Jazz. However, he was noticeably a tad too thin as a 21-year-old Jazz rookie after going No. 27 overall at the 2013 NBA Draft. Nowadays, though, the 29-year-old big man appears more and more like an undeniably imposing muscleman.
Check out Gobert’s tweeted workout picture over the weekend, which is the equivalent of the 7-foot-1, 260-pounder’s private gun show:
Now, compare that massive build to the oh-so-slender frame from Gobert’s 2013-14 highlight package in what was then known as the NBA D-League.
