Rudy Gobert has become a very controversial player in the NBA.

The Minnesota Timberwolves star is a polarizing figure who is often criticized around the league.

After several years with the Utah Jazz, he joined the Timberwolves, but so far his impact has been minimal.

After the play-in game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Skip Bayless again criticized Gobert.

Looking at the height difference and the youth on the Thunder, one would have thought that Gobert would dominate.

However, although his game was great, it was not as good as some Bayless had hoped.

When Gobert was traded to the T-Wolves, it raised a lot of eyebrows around the league.

The Jazz found plenty of talent in the Frenchman, who is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, but not a superstar.

The season was full of ups and downs for Minnesota, who eventually received the 8th seed in the West.

Gobert has been involved in several controversies this season, including punching teammate Kyle Anderson.

Now, the Timberwolves are set to face Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets in the playoffs.

This will be a real test for Gobert, going up against one of the best players in the NBA.

The Frenchman has a big job, and the team hopes to shock the Nuggets.
