Rudy gobert compared himself to bill russell

Gobert matched the record for four Defensive Player of the Year awards won by Detroit’s Ben Wallace (2002, 2003, 2005, 2006) and Dikembe Mutombo in 1995, 1997, 1998 and 2001 with Denver, Atlanta and Philadelphia.

The 7-foot-1 (2.16m) star chose to spend Monday night with his girlfriend Julia Bonilla, who gave birth to their son earlier in the day, rather than watch Minnesota’s playoff victory at Denver.

Gobert said to American NBA telecaster TNT, “Romeo is the name, and he’s doing great.” Numerous blessings. Just incredibly appreciative.

A media panel selected Gobert with 72 first-place votes, fellow Frenchman Victor Wembanyama, the 20-year-old San Antonio Spurs star named NBA Rookie of the Year on Monday, coming in second with 19 first-place votes, and Miami’s Bam Adebayo third with three.
