Rudy Gobert had a coming out party for the NBA during the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge with 18 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks for the World Team.
The Utah Jazz eventually traded Enes Kanter at the deadline, which promoted Gobert into a full-time starting role. Since then, Gobert has averaged 10.5 points, 14.1 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game while shooting 57 percent from the field.
Another big man who’s played well lately has been New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis. He's on pace to become the fourth player in league history with a player efficiency rating above 31. Only Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and LeBron James have previously done so. If the Pelicans make the playoffs, don’t be surprised if he gets serious MVP consideration as Michael Scotto outlined in a previous column.
With that in mind, Scotto joined 1320 AM KFAN in Utah and hosts Kyle Gunther and Ben Anderson to discuss Gobert’s emergence, Anthony Davis’ realistic chances at the MVP award and the league’s top title contenders. We also looked back at the Deron Williams trade for the Brooklyn Nets.
The bad news for Monty Williams was good news for the rest of the NBA.
There is now a strong chance that Anthony Davis leaves New Orleans and becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2017.
That is the ultimate fallout from Tuesday's shocking news that the Pelicans had fired Williams after he led them to the Western Conference playoffs, where they were swept by the Golden State Warriors. The firing came a mere two weeks after owner Tom Benson wrote a public letter to Williams, general manager Dell Demps and the rest of the organization congratulating them on their achievement.
So what the heck happened in the interim?
Clear, concise answers were not forthcoming from front office executive Mickey Loomis, whose fingerprints are all over this move. Loomis, who also is the front-office overseer for Benson's other team, the NFL New Orleans Saints, is a guy who believes in organizational charts. In his mind, the coach should report to the general manager, and the GM should report to the owner. That was the the case in New Orleans, where Williams and Demps were on equal footing on the organizational chart.
And in the twisted mind of Loomis, if you don't have a functional organizational chart, you don't have a fully functional organization.
So he fired Williams.
It is a fascinating story, and it will remain a fascinating story for the next several years because Davis is not going to forget how this hatchet job went down. Last time a player of his caliber had this type of beef with management/ownership, he got himself shipped out of town. You may have heard of the guy: Chris Paul.
And in my crystal ball, I foresee Anthony Davis becoming the next Chris Paul.
More in this interview with Kristian Garic and T-Bob Hebert on WWL Radio in New Orleans, the Pelicans' flagship station.

The fellas discuss the NBA Playoffs as the Wild Wild West has lived up to the hype. We continue last week's conversation about Anthony Davis – who is playing lights out in the postseason despite the fact that the Splash Brothers are showing why they are the best back-court in the league. Ed will complain about Deron Williams – whose heart pumps Kool-Aid, give props to the addition of Shump, JR, Timofey Mozgov as the Cavs roll in the playoffs, and gush about the greatness of the San Antonio Spurs while eating a bowl of crow after the Houston Rockets dominant performance thus far in the playoffs.
Fuz will certainly bring up the Washington Capitals-New York Islanders series, with the Caps now taking a 3-2 advantage. Given time, the guys will also talk about Andre Ward's long-awaited return to the ring, early impressions of the baseball season and a rant about the Montreal Impact almost getting mugged by Club America.
