    Not sure how I interpret this postgame interview from Lebron James:

    Listen to the 0:50 mark
    https://audioboom.com/posts/5482299-lebron-james-1-10-17-postgame-vs-jazz

    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....

    Question before she asked; "How difficult did Gordon make it for you tonight"... Not gonna give much praise when a question is worded like that.

    Did she watch the game? Gordon didn't guard him that much. They ran a rotation at him - Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles probably spent more time guarding him. Hood has a spell as well, IIRR.

    His answers to that question and the All-Star question were respectful to Hayward, I thought.

    I thought lbj was very praising of Hayward tbh. He seemed annoyed that another media shill was trying to get click bait sound bites from him.

    Everyone knows LeBron is a grouchy SOB when he loses.

    Did you really expect him to throw conversational bouquets at G-Time right after his team got their collective asses handed to them?

    Did you guys catch him laughing with fans and then giving high fives to the fans on his way to the bench at the end of the game? I thought that was awesome of him.

    He didn't say that. He said he wanted to remain neutral.

    I love lebron. He always does stuff like that. Great player and great dude. I never hear about him getting in trouble with the law or girlfriends/wives or any other off court issues.

    I did see that, I've been curious since then as to what was said or if it was a culmination of interactions throughout the game. Either way it was cool to see.

    I saw that, I immediately assumed they were part of the Cleveland staff.

    Maybe not.

    I 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.

    The exchange was "LeBron you havent won in SLC since 2010" and Lebron responded "I got 3 rings tho"

    And as far as respect goes, Hayward was getting double teamed for a large portion of the game, even triple teamed at some points.

    He said this coz he sees him as a rival nominee now. He wants to break his back early, tries not to encourage him. He knows exactly what Hay has become. He is not stupid.
