    Buddy Hield

    I felt bad for him after reading this.

    BEHIND-the-scenes stories from NBA All Star weekend are filtering out - including how one lesser light got in front of a media scrum and was destroyed by the power of LeBron James.

    Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield was present for the Skills Challenge and the Rising Stars Challenge, played before the main game at the LA weekend.

    He was put up for media before taking to the court. And through no fault of his own, things got seriously embarrassing.

    “This is just going to sound like I’m just ripping Buddy Hield to shreds here,” Golliver started.

    “During the practice availability, they had the guys come in in shifts, so all the Saturday night guys came in as the first shift, and then Team LeBron was coming in as the second shift.

    “They had 12 numbered stations set up for all the guys, so Buddy Hield was set up to be at the No.4 station - and for whatever reason, this huge swarm of media members start surrounding Buddy Hield for his talk.

    “There’s like two or three questions about, ‘OK, you’re going to be in the skills challenge, tell us about it, whatever’. And then, pretty much it just goes silent. It’s supposed to be like a 15, 20-minute interview session.

    “He’s looking around like, ‘Are you guys all shy, what’s wrong with you reporters? Why aren’t you asking me any questions?’ He’s literally saying this out loud, he’s like looking to his PR guy for help.

    “And finally, one of the reporters is like, ‘Dude, LeBron’s going to talk here in about 45 minutes at the same station, so we’re just standing here waiting for LeBron’.

    “And the look on Buddy Hield’s face was just like of realisation - the recognition was just so painful.”

    Maybe this will re-fuel his fire tank. So he'll work even harder this off-season

    His story has always been, he'll never be good enough, maybe this will be the next part of his story that feels the same to push him to new heights.Come on Buddy, don't stop working to be great!

    That sucks for Buddy. At least he got to participate in all-star weekend though. He played well in the Rising Stars game.

    Buddy was a victim of circumstance here. I'm sure Spencer Dinwiddie would have had the same thing happen to him.
