GREAT SALT TAKES: What does it mean that Gobert and Mitchell were taken last in All-Star Draft?

It was totally ridiculous that Rudy and Donovan were taken after guys like Domantas Sabonis and Zach Lavine. Both Rudy and Donovan are LIGHTYEARS ahead of those dudes in terms of effectiveness and ability to impact a game. Hopefully, the slighted Jazzmen will use the disrespect as motivation.

It shouldn’t matter. The danger in not pitting East and West like the good ‘ol days are situations like this. It brings playground picks to the pros — something we should leave in elementary school or simply eliminate.”

I hate to accept it, but it’s a conversation between former players, current players, and if they’ve got something sticking in their craw then obviously it’s going to come out. And I think we saw a little bit of that with the draft. But let’s just make it clear, Donovan and Rudy deserving to be there. They’/re tenacious in what they do.

Can the slighted Jazzmen use the disrespect as fuel?
