Rudy Gobert, Isaiah Thomas and Hassan Whiteside waged emoji war over Gordon Hayward in July. Of course, Thomas’ Celtics won Hayward’s signature over the Jazz and Heat in free agency.

But Thomas – dealt to the Cavaliers in the Kyrie Irving trade – won’t get to reap the rewards of playing with Hayward.

Shortly after that blockbuster trade, Gobert retweeted Thomas’ tweet to Hayward:


I’m here for the pettiness, which I chalk up as partially in good fun and partially not.

But I doubt Thomas is broken up about not playing with Hayward considering Thomas is going from the East’s second-best team to the East’s best team.
