Rudy Gobert, Isaiah Thomas, Hassan Whiteside get in emoji fight over Gordon Hayward

Emojis and NBA free agency collided once again Saturday night, and this time the Utah Jazz were at the center of it.

All-Star forward Gordon Hayward on Saturday met with the Miami Heat, and he’s scheduled to hear free agency pitches from the Boston Celtics and Jazz in the coming days.

At 8:20 p.m. Mountain Time Saturday, Utah center Rudy Gobert sent a tweet of just emojis that communicated exactly how he feels about Hayward’s free agency, with the palm tree representative of Miami, the clover meant as code for Boston and the saxophone the Jazz.

Less than 90 minutes later, Celtics star guard Isaiah Thomas indirectly shot back at Gobert with tweet communicating how many championships each of the three teams has won.

Ensuring that the Heat wouldn’t be left out of the fray, South Beach center Hassan Whiteside noted (using just emojis, of course) how many titles each team has won since 2000.
