On the eve of the Blues' second match against Germany at the Sud de France Arena, the Blues' pivot, Rudy Gobert, spoke about the current political context and his relationship with Victor Wembanyama.

Rudy Gobert seems relaxed. After another great performance against Germany (13 points and 7 rebounds, 90-66 victory), the Blues pivot appears satisfied with this first week of preparation, three weeks before the Games."There is a thirst for work in this group. There is great energy to prepare as best as possible. I am satisfied with the state of mind.  Every little thing brings us closer to the best version of the French team", breathes it player from Minnesota, a few hours before the "return match" against the Germans in Montpellier.

A great chemistry with Wemby

Aligned alongside Victor Wembanyama in the major five in the first two friendly matches, the pivot evokes their beautiful relationship, which continues to take shape.& nbsp;"We have a connection with Victor. Both humanly and on the field, explains the giant of the Timberwolves. Seeing him evolve every day is a pleasure and I am proud to see the maturity he demonstrates today and we see that he gives himself the opportunity every day to ;be a single player."

"It’Victor is easy to play with, he can do everything on the court"

The two interiors are starting to get along well on the pitch and the maturity shown by the young Spurs rookie impresses the 32-year-old pivot. "I’I had the chance to play with greats who know how to shoot, like Boris (Diaw). But with Victor, it's even easier, he knows how to do everything on a basketball court, he already understands spacing very well, he positions himself very well on the court and understands very quickly what I want to do&quot ;.

A heavy political context

Like Victor Wembanyama, a few days ago, Rudy Gobert was also questioned about the political context which is shaking up the country. "I think whether in France or everywhere in the world, there has always been a certain type of discrimination, he explains. There has always been some violence, whether verbal or physical. Human beings have always done this, since the dawn of time." An important subject for the kingpin, who spoke in a letter published in The Players Tribune about the discrimination he suffered as a child.

"The important thing is to try to fight for our values, values ​​of respect. "

But the native of Saint-Quentin wants to send a positive message, a few hours before the ballot counting: "L&rsquo The important thing is to try to fight for our values, values ​​of respect. In the end, what everyone wants is to be able to live in harmony. Whether in France or anywhere in the world."
