How are Utah Jazz fans handling Gordon Hayward pulling a KD and leaving them in the dust on July 4th? Nothing crazy, just the usual early stages of fan grief: aggressively hateful comments on social media and burning $100 jerseys.
Apparently leaving the stacked Western Conference to play in LeBron’s Eastern Conference for $128 million is a difficult concept to grasp.
As for the #Betrayward and other anti-Hayward insults Jazz fans are lobbing, Gordon’s wife, Robyn, has countered that by turning off her comments completely — though she still did thank Utah:
I’m excited to go on this adventure with this man! It’s bittersweet leaving where we’ve called home and grown our family, but I’m excited to see where this path takes us! We are so grateful for everything Utah has done for us! ❤️ Also, as for all the mean comments and threats. Don’t forget athletes are humans too. Treat others how you would like to be treated. It would never cross my mind to speak so negatively and so full of hate about oneself or their family.
