After tonight's game against the Jazz, he had his doubts about Rudy Gobert's status as a defensive superstar.

Edwards does not believe Gobert is the best rim defender in the league. During the post-game interview, the guard expressed that this status is reserved for Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis.

"Anytime I go against Porzingis, I get no layups," Edwards noted. "I don’t get why we couldn’t finish on Rudy Gobert. He doesn’t put any fear in my heart. I don’t know why."

The 20-year-old scored 18 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in the loss against the Jazz.

Gobert is averaging 14.9 points, 14.7 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks this season. Porzingis is more productive on the offensive end, averaging 19.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.6 blocks per game.
