Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert didn’t let the fact that he’d fouled out from a game stop him from attempting a flop. The Frenchman was part of a Jazz team that put on a tired performance against the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 1 of their first-round matchup and watched his side lose 112-109 on Sunday night with partner in crime Donovan Mitchell ruled out with an ankle issue.
It’s since been reported that Mitchell is mad at the team for leaving him out of the game.
Gobert, though, tried his shameful best to get a tech on Kyle Anderson with 1:35 remaining in the fourth quarter. As we would expect, the officials didn’t bite.
Flopping, of course, is hardly new to the game, but this is next level.
