    Rudy Gobert, who wore a flashy hot pink suit, wins Defensive Player of the Year. He says the “sky’s the limit” for the Utah Jazz and he believes the Jazz will take another step forward next season. He “truly” believes the Jazz will be able to win a championship.

    Rudy Gobert Wins Defensive Player of the Year!

    Rudy Gobert led the NBA in Defensive Real Plus-Minus this season. And the difference between Gobert's DRPM and second place is about the same as the distance between second place and 10th-place Joel Embiid.

    Utah Jazz @utahjazz

    .@rudygobert27 is YOUR Defensive Player of the Year!! 🖐 #TakeNote | #NBAAwards
