Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has been named the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

This is the third time that Gobert has taken home the award.

Gobert bested Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Philadelphia 76ers guard-forward Ben Simmons in the individual citation.

The French baller’s defense became a huge factor for the Jazz to finish with the best record in NBA.
