Damn. Lebron so salty. Dude always goes out of his way to trash Hayward.
And as far as respect goes, Hayward was getting double teamed for a large portion of the game, even triple teamed at some points.
hayward slipping is almost his signature move at this point. puts himself on ice skates at least once a gameI thought it was pretty funny the one time Hayward had to ISO Lebron with the shot clock going down, he actually had Lebron beat. He got him slightly off balanced with a nice crossover and he was driving hard left to set up the step back. He puts down his plant foot and just tumbles to the ground. It was so anti climatic then LeBron goes over to offer him a hand up and Hayward ignores him, Lebron gives him a pat on the butt.

You're making something out of nothing. Sports reporters are ****ing annoying with their loaded questions, and then overreactions regardless of what the answer is. If Lebron says no, then there's the dumb story to follow about how Lebron is a jerk and doesn't respect Hayward/The Jazz. If he says yes and then Hayward doesn't make it, then there's the big story of how Hayward got snubbed and that even Lebron thought he should make it.Not sure how I interpret this postgame interview from Lebron James:
Listen to the 0:50 mark
I don't see what controversy it would cause if he said something like, "yeah I think he should be an all-star, but it's not up to me so I'll let other people make that decision"...unless he doesn't think he's an all-star. I think he's still salty about Hayward dropping that game winner against him a couple years ago....
Hell, even with him trying to avoid the question altogether, here you are trying to make something out of it. Sports reporters have a job to do, but my hell they're annoying. I don't blame Lebron a bit just because somebody couldn't make him say Hayward should be an all-star.
As for him being salty over a game he lost years ago, he's lost lots of games in his career, and I doubt that stands out. Kind of meaningless in the grand scheme of things for somebody who has won the whole banana several times.
Not sure why fans get all uptight about what players say after we beat them. This kind of happened with the warriors too, only I don't think we even won that game, just played them tough. Some reporter got all bent out of shape because they were laughing after some dumb question about Utah being on their level or something. It's as if some fans are so insecure that they need reassurance.
Respect will come when Utah proves themselves in the playoffs. Until then, nobody should act like one game means anything more than we outplayed somebody on that particular night.
