  • I would expect from perkins ged that he could not figure this out! The rest of espn members are the educated but no common sense! Does it make more sense rudy was picked over kat because kat missed 17 games? Wow look at that the real reason, smh

  • Y does everyone hate KAT if u look at Minnesota’s roster it would make sense for them to win so many games I mean 36 -46 isn’t bad

  • Dude look at Utah’s roster and Minnesota’s roster I’m sure Gobert would have not been able to carry Minnesota if he was the Center in place KAT I mean if KAT was in Utah they’d be winning 50+ games

  • KAT. Is the 3rd best big man in the nba. Anthony davis, joel embiid, KAT. So why was he not all nba??? Hands down. Gobert is a defensive presence. But KAT, is a franchise cornerstone. Its not even debatable. Youre going to give someone a award for the best players in the nba. For the record of the franchise they play for. Its not kats fault hes on the timbs it not. Put KAT on utah. And they make it to the finals. He was robbed of this. And they need to stop giving awards for stuff. And bringing into acount something that has nothing to do with the award being given. Smh. Makes no since.

  • Rudy sucks so

  • oh no he won't have 100 fucking million in his bank account by the age he expected :/ bro this is about fucking basketball. I would've rather had Gobert on my team this season. KAT is not a top 3 big man in the game. Period. "Who would you rather give the superma-" irrelevant. Who has the most potential for growth has nothing to do with who had the better season. It's kinda pathetic to hear Kendrick value individual numbers over winning.

  • It all depends who else you have on your team. If you have scorers already? No way in hell you gonna pick KAT over Gobert. No one in the entire NBA impacts defense in the key more. People who normally drive to the basket straight up cower and back off when he's there. Lol nobody does that against KAT. This dude can't even pronounce his name correctly he can fuck off. Now that said, if I don't have a strong scoring presence at another position? Yeah I'd probably take KAT. It all depends on what the team needs. In either case though, this pick is at least a difficult one to fight over. They both deserved it, Gobert just did a little more. He's 100% the reason for Utah's success, despite Donovan's sex appeal. Minnesota has the pieces for success, they just don't have the drive to win. KAT being a classic case.

  • KAT is not a winner, a grinder, doesn't finish well, 4th quarter he disappears, horrible at passing, finding the open player or making opportunities for other players and himself. Decision making sucks. Lacks big time in the defense end, other bigs annihilate the dude. He can't take over a game or lead a team and with that bum coach his numbers will only drop. Kats potential and what he actually does on the court are 2 different things. He is NOT all-nba!!!

  • Set the playoffs aside. Gobert still did more. Plain and simple. And this man is really using a popularity vote by fans as an argument? Lmao. It's not about who would you start your franchise with. It's about who was better between the 2 THIS YEAR. And that answer is Gobert.

  • Rachel is right again about the way the NBA decides awards - However, the question at hand- who would you rather build a team around? Rudy Gobert or KAT? Rudy Gobert- guy is a defensive beast, and shows up every game- I Like KAT, but Jimmy Butler was right, he dogs it 1/2 the time- for a "franchise player" for the T-Wolves, KAT is inconsistant, sometimes great, often just meh- KAT isn't complete trash Like Andrew Wiggins is, but he's still already getting overpaid- the real truth? D Rose was a better player for the T-Wolves this season than KAT 1/2 the time, and D Rose got paid League Minimum

  • Perkins did nothing. He doesn't deserve to say squat. Let's be honest. He got carried to that title. You're telling me you'd rather have KAT who has never made the playoffs, can't play D and gets absolutely shut down by Rudy every time they play? Okayyyy.... who has carried his team to the best Defense in the league, player in the league, AND 3 consecutive playoffs appearances. I'm taking Gobert. KAT can put up 20+ but he's going to give up 30+ whether that's to an individual or giving up assists at the rim because he doesn't protect the paint. I'm taking Rudy every single time.
