It came as a surprise to the Utah Jazz fans, and to many people around the NBA : the Stiffle Tower, Rudy Gobert, has not been selected to the 2017 NBA All-Star Game.

One can argue that Gobert is the best non-All-Star player in the NBA right now. Over the last 20 games, the big man averaged 13.4 points, 14.0 rebounds and 2.4 blocks. The best stretch in his young NBA career ! And... stats don't really tell Gobert's impact in the paint, where he scares everybody in the league except Russell Westbrook (check the video)...
