Rudy Gobert Got Stung on Face by Bee from His Own Beehive, Jokes 'Sometimes There's Casualties'


Rudy Gobert's 7-foot-1 height is perfect for life in the NBA — but it also apparently made him an easier target for one upset bee. On Thursday, the Utah Jazz star arrived at a shootaround before the team's game against the Dallas Mavericks with noticeable swelling near his right eye. After joking that he was beaten up by "seven guys," the 29-year-old told reporters that he was stung by one of the bees that lives in a hive at his home in Salt Lake City earlier this week. According to CBS Sports, Gobert said the bees were agitated after he and a beekeeper recently changed their hive's queen.
