Rudy Gobert in favor of Joel Embiid in the French team, provided he does it with his heart

la rédaction

Will Joel Embiid (2.13 m, 28 years old) play for the French team? Or for the United States? Or neither? The suspense may last for several more months. Rudy Gobert spoke on the subject in The Athletic exposing the conditions required to wear the blue jersey.

Rudy Gobert emphasizes that a national team does not have the same philosophy as an NBA team.

“For me, the most important thing is that it is his heart that tells him to be part of the French team, I want him to do it for the right reasons, that he understands that the French team is different from the NBA. We have rules, we have ways of doing things. Sometimes we all have lunch and dinner together, it’s not everyone doing their own thing. It’s two different teams.

But I think the main thing for us, for him and for me, is that I want to make sure he does it from his heart. And if he does that, I think he would be an incredible addition to our team. It has to come from him. You’re either all-in or you’re not. You can’t just come in and show up.”
