Gordon Hayward refutes claim that he wanted to allow Kobe Bryant to score 60 points

One rumor that was going around yesterday was that during Kobe Bryant's final basketball game, Gordon Hayward purposely caused a lane violation to assure that Kobe Bryant would finish with 60 points in his final game of his career. As gracious as that would have been, Hayward to his credit refuted that account late yesterday in a series of tweets:

Kobe Bryant was not the type of player that wanted someone to give him 60 points. Credit to Hayward for clearing this up.
