SALT LAKE CITY – Rudy Gobert didn’t want to answer these questions yet.

He didn’t want to be in this room and sat on a podium and talked to reporters when there was a very good basketball court some walls away where his team could (should?) Practice in preparation for Game 6.

But there he was on Thursday’s end of the season’s media availability and discussed the disappointing end to Utah’s short-lived playoff. [19659002] “It tastes sour to be on vacation earlier than we’ve been in the last two or three years,” Gobert said. “It’s frustrating. I think we all think we are a better team than we showed.”

On Thursday, the jazz survey interviews for all 1

7 players, officially closed the book during the 2018-19 season. The last chapter was not a happy one: a 4-1 loss for the first-round Houston rockets that has led to it is a sense of devastation.

After two years of mostly the same roster, change seems to be on the horizon.

“You are eliminated, you are embarrassed in the first two matches – no one was satisfied,” said Jazz General Manager Dennis Lindsey. “So you suffer. You see an honest look.”

This look will reveal a season full of important emotional moments.

Joe and Renae Ingles announced that their son had autism to overwhelming society and world support, Kyle Korver wrote a focused part of the Players Tribune on racism, and when a racist fan verbally abused Russell Westbrook, it forced the fan base and organization to acknowledge a question which many may not have realized existed.

The honest look at the season will also show a team that never reached the heights that it thought it should.

“We are a better team than we were last year,” Gobert said. “It doesn’t feel like that because we’re finished a few weeks before, but we’re definitely.”

And so there was so much disappointment among jazz players to see their season done. They thought they were better than

“We will all use it, I would not say humiliation, but it is kind of humiliation when you lose 4-1 in the first round for us, for what we want to do and our goal,” Gobert

That goal was not winning the 50 games. It was not making the playoffs. The goal was to win a championship.

And tough playoff draw or not, the jazz didn’t get close to achieving it.

” We’re still a young team, “Gobert said.” We still have a lot of gu. It’s very young that will continue to improve every year. We are right there. “

But next season, the parts will be different. And they can only be very different.

Ricky Rubio said he would look for what was best for him, while Lindsey only offered to see some scenarios where Rubio returns

Derrick Favors said he wants to return, but it is up to the jazz who decides.

Kyle Korver said he should sit down with his family to discuss whether it is time to hang it up

Thabo Sefolosha and Ekpe Udoh both said how much they have had their time here, but also did not give a strong indication that they expect to be back.

“We all love each other and that is not every years I can say that, “said Gobert.” But at the same time, every team that wants to make hard decisions. “

That time feels fast approaching Lindsey and Jazz.

” Change doesn’t automatically mean better, “Lindsey says. “We have a lot to be thankful for this group. “
