It seems that Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert isn’t a huge Kobe Bryant fan after this latest exchange with Enes Kanter on Twitter this week.

After the New York Knicks 108-92 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, Enes Kanter — who posted 17 points and 13 rebounds in the loss — tweeted out a picture of him driving to the hoop over all five members of the 76ers, ultimately resulting in his shot getting swatted.

Gobert, who actually used to play alongside Kanter in Utah before he was traded to Oklahoma City, decided to stir the pot a little bit, and beat one of the most active NBA players on Twitter at his own game: roasting fellow players.

Damn!

Kanter, after only a few minutes, thought up a quick-witted response, bringing Kobe‘s name into the conversation.

Hopefully, this exchange was just a friendly bit of banter between two former teammates, and Gobert meant no ill-will towards Kanter. Regardless of his intentions though, you can’t deny that Rudy was spot-on — Kanter should’ve definitely been passing the ball out to a shooter in that scenario.
