    Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder calls a play in Salt Lake City on Saturday Oct. 21 2017. The Jazz won 96-87

Like Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert.

"It feels better than it looked on the video", he said.

"I've never been a dirty player in my life", Waiters told the South Florida Sun Sentinel prior to the Heat's game against the Pistons in Detroit.

After being informed of Gobert's comment, Waiters was quick to defend his character, saying that he had no intention of hurting the Jazz's center during the play, per Andre Fernandez of The Miami Herald. Gobert would limp off the court, but return in the fourth quarter after being diagnosed with a right knee contusion.

"I've never been a dirty player in my life", Waiters said.

Also on Sunday, Waiters responded to Gobert's claim that he made a dirty play by emphatically stating multiple times that he is not a dirty player.

Specifically, a controversial change to the game made it more hard to get Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. It now sits at negative 392,000 points, making it the most downvoted comment in Reddit history .

However it's pretty clear to see that Waiters meant no harm, just merely making a hustle play.

"I didn't even know that was him", Waiters continued. At the end of the day, that (expletive) don't matter. "I just want him going for it, putting his nose on two or three more of those a game".

Gobert, averaging 13.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game so far this season, still recorded a double-double (12 points, 12 rebounds) against Miami despite suffering the injury.

To start the year, Minnesota struggled to find continuity with their new group of players.

As it stands, the 6-7 Jazz have the third-best defensive rating (which calculates points allowed per 100 possessions) in the league, which is crucial to their success, because they also they the fourth-worst offensive rating in the National Basketball Association.
