It's not always easy being an NBA rookie. Especially a 21-year-old far from your home country. So, from time to time, things might slip your mind -- like, say, bringing donuts to pregame shootaround. That, apparently, was the crime committed by Rudy Gobert, the Utah Jazz's first-year, 7-foot-2 French big man. His punishment: popcorn. In his car. A lot of it. In the video above, Gobert didn't seem too upset seeing all that grain in his ride, and he had a feeling something was coming. He also believes he knows the perpetrator: 33-year-old veteran Richard Jefferson.
