The NBA All-Star Game reserves were announced on Thursday and the results were not kind to Rudy Gobert.

The Jazz center, who is averaging 15.0 points, 12.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game, was not selected by the league's head coaches.

On Friday, he spoke to reporters but had to end his session early because he got quite emotional.

Draymond Green, who is not an All-Star for the first time since 2015, and Andre Iguodala got wind of Gobert's tears and elected to share their thoughts on Twitter:

On Thursday night, Utah head coach Quin Snyder went to bat for his big man.

Get out a pen right now and mark Feb. 12 on your calendar because that's when the Warriors next play the Jazz.

Expect some terse words to be exchanged.
