"I never dreamed I’d be an All-Star" - Gordon Hayward

On Wednesday, Gordon Hayward shared a candid and heartfelt post to his personal website describing the moment he discovered he had been named an All-Star for the first time in his career.

Hayward recalled in detail how on January 26, Utah Jazz assistant coach Johnnie Bryant called him and broke the news Hayward was going to be participating in the 2017 NBA All-Star game.

Now in his seventh season with the Jazz after making his debut back in 2010, Hayward goes on to thank all those who have supported him from the beginning.
