SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – For shedding tears while discussing his mother’s reaction to his All-Star Game snub, Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has been the target of ridicule from a few NBA stars.

Most notably, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green sent a sarcastic tweet making fun of the Jazz center for becoming emotional when describing a conversation with his mother.

Interestingly, Green described becoming emotional when his mother informed him that he made the All-Star team back in 2015.

Green’s teammate, Andre Iguodala, also joined in on mocking Gobert on Twitter.

The Denver Nuggets’ Isaiah Thomas also poked fun at Gobert, but issued an apology to the Jazz center a little bit later.

Fans Stand Up For Gobert

Jazz fans and fans of the NBA in general did not take kindly to the remarks made by Gobert’s on-court rivals and let their displeasure be heard on social media.
