The stats don't jump out at you, but the impact this guy has is insane. Some of the advanced metrics are nuts. The Jazz have a +23 rating with Gobert on the floor (123 points per 100 and only 100 points against per 100). That's higher than Kevin Durant (+12), James Harden (+16), and LeBron James (+9). If you want to know the real reason the jazz are winning, look no further than Donovan Mitchell's net rating (-3), compared to Rudy Gobert's net rating (+23).
I really think we need to differentiate him from other defensive centers like Whiteside, DeAndre, etc. His impact is just so much greater.

He is underrated and at the same time overrated in our system. Underrated because we cannot give the 100+ DAware and 95 Blocking that he deserves. Overrated because he already have 99 Dunking, 78 IScoring and 85 OAware. Even his Speed and Quickness is a little bit high, in my opinion.
He is one of the unfortunate victim of playing in simulated world.
84 - He is a little bit more overrated than underrated.

Tom Izzo: I'm just being salty. It's my team. With Terrence Ross and Ilyasova as well. Just salty because I truly do think in real life we would be a top 3 NBA team and should be a serious D5 contender, but struggled in the sim and lost in the first round

Reggie Miller: Izzo, is that a hypothetical NBA lineup or a could-be D5 roster?

Josh Barber: that team seems decent but not sure how they would handle something like Joe Ingles playing point guard

Alex English: Doesn't sound great to me. First round playoff exit probably.

Tom Izzo: Imagine a team with Kemba Walker, CJ McCollum, Giannis, Steven Adams, with Austin Rivers, Ben McLemore, Andre Roberson on the bench. Damn. Just imagine

George Gervin: TJ Warren is not a max player..even with this explosion he has always been a player best as a third banana, max $18-20 MM a year guy

Tom Izzo: TJ Warren is earning himself a max contract this off-season 👀
