Gobert would join Hall of Famers Dikembe Mutombo and Ben Wallace as the only players in NBA history to earn the Defensive Player of the Year four times.

The French center led Minnesota to the league’s best defense allowing only 108.4 points per 100 possessions, two points better than the second-ranked Boston Celtics.

Gobert averaged 14.0 points, 12.9 rebounds, and 2.1 rebounds during the regular season before helping the Timberwolves sweep the star-studded Phoenix Suns in the opening round of the playoffs.
