Question: What was it this year that made you bring up your level and get to your first All-Star game?

Hayward: I think a lot of it has to do with our team's success. Playing a lot better basketball. I wouldn't be in the situation I am if we aren't as successful as we are.

Question: What about the state of the league? Would you say the league is the best it's been like right now, best that it's ever been?

Hayward: I think the league is definitely trending in the right direction. It's more global than it's ever been, and I think that's really helping the league out. I think with technology advancing and our players are so accessible. Right there you can see their face, and we're actually tweeting and videos make it a more interactive experience for the fans. I think that helps. It's definitely very popular right now.
