Pokemon Go is the newest release from Nintendo that has taken nearly everyone’s lives, including NBA players. Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson and Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert have been the latest personalities who are threatened to be addicted in Pokemon Go.
In the Las Vegas Summer League, Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert attended to watch some of the league’s promising young players begin their NBA career. Unfortunately, the game went quite boring and failed to show some intensity. However, Gobert’s eyes grew bigger as a wild Spearow appeared in front of him.

This is why Pokemon Go makes gamers thrilled. They will never know when or where a certain Pokemon will appear. No one can catch all the Pokemon just by staying in one place. After the incident, Rudy Gobert had made up his mind to come out of retirement as a Pokemon trainer and start catching them all.

The Los Angeles Clippers also joined the fun and posted on Twitter a picture of a Pokemon they are trying to level up. The Clippers are currently involved in trade rumors with the Boston Celtics regarding their power forward Blake Griffin.
The Sacramento Kings seemed to be the top NBA team who has been influenced by the most popular Android and iOS game. The Kings will become the first NBA team to hold a Pokemon GO meet up when they open the doors to Sleep Train Arena on Friday for players to catch some Pokemon.
An event has been created on Facebook inviting all the Pokemon trainers to visit their arena and find the rarest Pokemon. The Kings boast the two Pokestops located near their gym. Also, Zubats, Pikachus, and Growlithes have been frequently seen on the team’s home hardwood. The meetup will take place from 4-8 p.m. PT on Friday.
