Default Gobert is the best center in the NBA now

It's up to Jokic and Embiid to prove it.

He's deserved it twice and been all NBA twice to go with his two straight DPOTY and all defensive teams

American basketball has destroyed the center position.

Gobert should be an all-star every year.

I'm sorry. Gobert is deserving as a yearly all-star lock and is easily a top 15 player in the league, but I saw what Jokic did in the playoffs.

Just saying he's an star rather the fans or coaches realize there is more to the game than points or not.

How many times has Cousins been an all-star? Who would want him on their team over Gobert?

What kind of weird logic is that?

And if he doesn’t make the all star team, he’s not an all star. There are 24 all stars per year. Not 34.

Didn't see the game. How good was he?


The Rockets have made him look average two postseasons in a row. That much I do know.

You mean like listing his actual achievements instead of making up arbitrary ones?

Yeah that works.

I really like Gobert. Has a huge impact. Just difficult to be the best player at your position when you can't be the focal point as a scorer. He averaged like 11/11 in the playoffs while blocking 2.6 shots per game. He actually played slightly less minutes in the playoffs.

I'm not even trying to be biased. I think Embiid talent wise is right there with Jokic. I won't argue against it. Jokic just averaged 25/13/8/1/1 on 59% TS with only 2.6 TO's per game and was 1 game away from the WCF. He helped Denver finished 2nd in the Western Conference with no other All-Stars. Murray has that potential .. but he isn't there yet. Embiid had Harris, Butler, Simmons etc. Gobert has Mitchell. What Jokic did this year was really underrated.

I just don't see the argument for Gobert above Jokic. Even defensively Jokic improved alot this year. He was really good in the playoffs, specifically vs S.A. Gobert struggled defensively being forced to switch vs Houston. In game 4 Utah's only win Gobert played 24 minutes and scored 4 points.

Jokic has the ability to carry an entire offense. Gobert can't do that. While Gobert can anchor a defense, Jokic is no longer a terrible defender. The gap offensively has a far bigger impact than the gap defensively.
