In a game that is mostly played on the perimeter a center wins DPOY. Instead of Ben Simmons who actually guards the best player on the other team.
1:50 90's movies predicted the future PERFECTLY
The defensive player of the year award has become too much of a routine by picking a big man with Rebs and Blks. Obviously he should have those stats being the biggest man on the court majority when playing. But I’m sure it’s a better way and a better reason to decide the defensive player of the year. I think coaches, players, and some media members should be allowed to vote.
If you think he didn't deserve it you simply don't know basketball
Ben definitely should've won. He guards 1-5 and Rudy is a liability on the perimeter against guards
Incorrect. Keep the salt flowing.
Defensive player of the year let a man who don’t score, drop 42 on his head lmao. He gets COOKED by any big man who can shoot. He can’t stop Embiid or Joker, and if your big enough he can be bullied. Ben Simmons proved that!! He did not deserve the award this year.
1 more and he just stamped his ticket to Canton.
Much deserved, congratulations Rudy. For those calling for Ben Simmons, here's the difference, Rudy shuts down entire teams, Ben may shut down an individual player. Last year Rudy shut down the entire NBA. HAHAHA 😂 LOL, this should be his 4th DPOY.
Shuts down the entire team. He sits in the paint . Simmons guards 1-5 while guarding the best player. Gobert mostly guards centers and PFs which there isn’t as many great big men.
Congrats Rudy gobert sna mag champion kayo
should have been nerlens noel, rudy is a bum
when will these voters learn man...
*Insert Obligatory* "He literally shut-down the league" *Comment*
Lmk when gobert can run with the fastest guards in the league and shut down the opposing teams best player every game.. oh he can’t do that?? Simmons>gobert
This man deserves it DPOY
rim protection>perimeter defense
F Ruby’s yogurt , yes because that’s the only thing their are going yo win because they are garbage
to call a team "garbage" is a refletion on a person's idiotic mindset. How is a team " garbage" when they finished 1st in the West? If you call Rockets "garbage" than you would be credible
Hes on pace, to not only be a defensive legend, but a fuckin future hall of famer too....give the man his respect, hes earned it!!! P.s. hes so good at defense, if he wasnt winning defensive player of the yr awards, he was shutting down the entire league...literally!!! lol
Marcus Morris agrees
That background makes it looks like he's at the VMA's 😂
Congrats big man!! Definetely deserves it!! Stop minding the hates fans give you 💛💛
No mics in front of him...good
BS! Ben Simmons won that award! He was robbed
@Trevor Terry I really like Ben Simmons and did did you see the possibly game winning block against the clippers rudy gobert had.
@Marko Skoric how he literally sits in the paint all game and when he has to guard smaller players they blow by him. Ben Simmons guards 1-5 and he guards the best player on the floor and probably your favorite player as well they robbed him
Rudy Gobert is a way better defensive player, just not as good as an offensive player.
I’m so fucking dumb I thought bs was Ben Simmons initials at first so I was hella confused
👏👏👏👏💪 congrats rudy gobert wooohhh!!!!
Flight punching the air rn
no he likes rudy now, since rudy send him some donations in his twitch
Still sad TIMMY never got the award but has been on the most defensive all nba teams in 15
He will have the most dpoys before he retires
@Nirdeep Yea him and Matumbo
Ben Wallace won it 4x right?
rly not that exciting that he won 🤣🤣
Wow ain't this the dude that made the season end last year.
Yes but he is good at defense.
Ben Simmons deserves it more
@Patricio Zambrano Rudy is a good shot blocker yeah but Ben defends all 5 positions and is also the defensive anchor for his team
Why Rudy was the best defensive player in all stats and the core defense in this team
What a year for the jazz
Dude really shut down the league last year came back with his 3rd DPOY😂😂
@LimitZ COD guess those who had a vote think you are wrong. Think this is payback for ROTY Simmons stole?
Ben should’ve won over him
LEBRON > GOBERT
Literally nobody said LeBron is worse
wow thanks i didnt know that
From getting the NBA shut down to defensive player of the year wow 😂😂😂
DPOY - French MVP - Serbian 6th - Fil-Am MIP - Dallas native(not sure) After Gobert's career is over is he HOF?
@Frazy Sting But at the same time its easier to get into the NBA hall of fame unlike the NFL so if he plays for a long time he should be good
Locked if he gets a ring. Else, we might have to wait quite a number of years before he is even considered. It's just that the NBA values offensive milestones more than defensive ones atm.
@Eli Wise True. He's also one of the bigs that plays like a "traditional big man" in a time where skills are required for bigs, and he's the best at his job.
Honestly I think if they make the finals this year he might be a slight lock. How many multi time award winners haven't made it? He's actually gotten better on defense too because he wasn't always good against stronger bigs or quick guards now he's legit serviceable at every aspect of defense and elite at multiple categories on that end of the floor.
Ben Simmons is *punching the air rn*
@Brad Tedor naw more people thought rudy was better
@Derrick Hamling no one cares these awards are popularity contests
@Brad Tedor your opinion doesnt matter because your opinion isnt changing shit?
@Derrick Hamling Ben is far and wide the best defender in the league can guard everyone and locks down literally everyone Rudy guards bigs in a league that is lacking great bigs besides a rare few
Ben didn't deserve it at all
Well deserved 💯
@Bachaaryaahla Yasharahla what ☠️
How he wasn’t a factor
ben got robbed
F you mean boy
Shaq always doggin rudy i know he holding his tongue back
RIP Ben Simmons, from a non sixers fan.
@Zaayan Hasan ben isnt top 10 but Joel is and if you dont think Joel is you are literally an idiot he was leading the MVP race till he got injured lmfao
@Philly Native You're a great fan because I have 3 friends that are sixers fans, and they think Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid are top 10 players.
@Philly Native he did how did he not
From a Sixers fan he didn’t deserve it
