Salt City Hoops Ep. 147: Is Rudy the Best Center? Plus All-Stars, Extensions & More

Jazz big man Rudy Gobert believes in himself. That much is evident, and if you need more proof, has you covered.

Gobert told the Worldwide Leader’s Tim McMahon that he thinks he’s the NBA’s best center. Not in terms of potential. Not in terms of future trajectory. Right this minute, he doesn’t think there’s a better center. “To be honest, right now, I think it’s me.”

Ken and Dan Clayton team up in this latest installment of the SCH podcast to evaluate just how bold (or unbold) the Stifle Tower’s assessment is. They also talk about the All-Star landscape for Gobert and Gordon Hayward, and take a fresh look at extension possibilities now that some new details are available on the terms of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
