Gordon Hayward is a team player, so he didn’t make much noise in the All-Star Game — which surprised exactly no one. He scored eight of his team’s 192 points. Bovada.LV gave him 70-1 odds on being named MVP. Jazz teammate Trey Lyles was a 25-1 shot to win the Rising Stars Challenge MVP. For odds on either of them making the all-interview team, please see “snowball’s chance” on the betting board.

AIR BELICHICK

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has agreed to narrate a PBS documentary on D-Day.

Plans call for him to detail how the Allies won by deflating Germany’s military zeppelins.

FORECASTING MODE

Broadcast legend Larry King tweeted the Jazz are “a very good team.” He went on to say, “Not sure if they have a finals run in them this year, but likely in the next year or two.”

In a related note, Quin Snyder is predicting CNN will overtake HGTV in the ratings.

CASH COWS

The cost of hotel rooms for Eric Trump’s trip to Uruguay, according to the Washington Post, was nearly $100,000.

Or as 2017 NBA free agents call it, “lunch money.”

SHARING TIME

LaMelo Ball, younger brother of UCLA’s Lonzo Ball, is nicely making his own way.

Last week he scored 92 points in a game, on 61 field-goal attempts.

Sources say he launched so many shots that even Carmelo Anthony was telling people good players “need to share the rock.”

LOCO FOR LONZO

Ball’s father Lavar says his elder son is better than Stephen Curry.

This announcement brought to you by the people who wear a foil antenna on their heads.

GAME-READY

Jimmer Fredette scored 73 points in a Shanghai Sharks game that featured zero defense.

And he didn't play in the NBA All-Star Game why?

COLOR CODE

Jazz coach Quin Snyder has been puzzling over which necktie color gets him the most wins.

Rock On recommends anything in the Jerry Garcia line, just to cover all the bases.

THE HOT SEAT

The Indoor Football League’s Salt Lake Screaming Eagles allow fans to call plays via smartphones. Viewers also voted on picking the coach and naming the team.

The Eagles lost their introductory game, 78-47.

Tweeted @BlaineJacob: “All the fans that called plays are fired.”
