Gordon Monson: Post All-Star game, the pressure only rises on Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell

Rudy Gobert’s response was perfect when he was asked after his NBA All-Star debut if he was trying to prove something in the game.Nah, he said, “You prove something by winning championships.”Yes, you do.And so, now, it is left to the Jazz’s two All-Stars, Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, to show what they’ve really got, what they really are. Few teams win championships without two stars leading the way for a competent team, a team adequately equipped to handle the challenge. But it is the stars who are the key. They must be in top form, not just by setting the tone and tenor for the...

All-Star Game’s new format draws rave reviews for intensity, but players are split on the free-throw ending

Chicago • For all the excitement generated by the new Elam Ending format in Sunday’s All-Star Game, it was not without a bit of controversy.How exactly did you feel about a game with such an intensely competitive fourth quarter ending on a free throw?“Ehhhhhh,” replied Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell. “I think it should be a jump ball and a clear-out, or something. Or that person can go 1-on-1 … something. I don’t think a free throw should end it. But I loved the format, I think it was really exciting, I think the fans really got involved.“I don’t have much to complain about,...

All-Star Game TK

Chicago • Sure, it’d been a minute since either Rudy Gobert or Donovan Mitchell wasn’t on the court for the opening tip of a game they played in, but considering this was the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, allowances could be made.What didn’t change is that once they did make their inaugural All-Star appearances, clad in red Team Giannis jerseys with No. 24 on the back, they did it together — at the 5:52 mark of the first quarter, for the record.The game’s ultimate result — a 157-155 victory for Team LeBron Each Jazz player got some opportunities to shine — though Gobert shone a bit...

Defense in the All-Star Game? Donovan Mitchell wants someone to try and dunk on Rudy Gobert, ‘because it’s not gonna happen’

Chicago • Given that NBA All-Star Games are typically so defense-averse that any possession which does not culminate in a dunk can be directly attributed to either laze or 3-point hubris, it’s fair to wonder exactly what role two-time reigning Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert might play in Sunday’s iteration.Count Donovan Mitchell — his teammate on both the Utah Jazz and Team Giannis — among those who don’t foresee the big man willingly stepping aside to enable a crowd-pleasing if ultimately vacuous throwdown.“I hope somebody tries to dunk on him, because it’s just not...
