Gordon Hayward's wife, Robyn, who's pregnant with their third child, posted a video of their baby gender reveal this week. It's safe to say the former Utah Jazz player will never live down his reaction after opening up a box full of pink balloons with his two young daughters.

"Whoa, it's a girl," Hayward said after seeing the pink balloons.

His wife then asked, "Is Daddy happy?"

Hayward replied with a response that will be repeated — in a mocking manner by some, no doubt — for years.

"Daddy's always happy."

Because of his tempered reaction, there were many observers who thought it was clear Hayward was hoping to get a box full of blue balloons. For one reason or another, it's been a hot topic of conversation in the ensuing days. Here are some Twitter reactions:

@SNOSports: "Gordon Hayward couldn’t hide his excitement about having a third daughter."

@U92SLC: "Gordon Hayward looking thrilled at his baby’s gender reveal."

@mrclarkinc: "Lot of ladies mad at Gordon Hayward about the gender reveal thing. Look. Opening a box w/ balloons in it has gotta be 1 of the most boring dumb things ever. As husbands, we’ll do it & fake excitement. But, u can’t actually think we’re fired up for the process right?"

@YourSports: "Gordon Hayward looking like the 3rd time was not the charm."

@HardysMedia: "Gordon Hayward definitely wanted a baby boy."

@BloodRunsGreen_: "I think Gordon Hayward wanted a boy."

@MsSamanthaMay: "Yeah… Gordon Hayward’s gender reveal was relatively uncomfortable lol."

Hayward's wife had had enough of the responses by Thursday when she shared this message on her Instagram story: "I wanted to share what I found so funny about us sharing our gender of the baby is how sensitive people are about everything." She typed this message on the screen: "If a baby gender reveal gets you heated or the way we did it you may need help hahaha thanks for the messages because they just made me laugh."

All that matters is that daddy — and mommy … OK, and daughters — are happy, right?

DUCK, DUCK … GOBERT!

Jazz center Rudy Gobert has apparently adopted some ducklings at his Salt Lake City home, and it couldn't be, well, cuter. He's been documenting interactions on his Instagram account.

The stories disappear after a day, but some were compiled on Twitter:

ON A MISSION

Dave Checketts has had many titles throughout his prestigious sports career with the Utah Jazz, NBA, Madison Square Garden, Real Salt Lake, the St. Louis Blues and so on. He's got a new focus and title now: mission president.

Checketts and his wife, Deb, recently began their three-year calling to preside over a mission in London, England, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While that isn't new news, Sports Business Daily took an outsider's look at what that sacrifice will look like for the sports mogul.

"The area we’re responsible for is a very significant part of England. It’s wonderful to work with these young people, who take two years out of their lives, usually during college, to do great things and give back. Their sacrifice is the impressive part of this," Checketts told Sports Business Daily.

"I was a young 19-year-old missionary and most of my time was in Los Angeles. I had a mission president, and suspected that perhaps when I was ready to retire, that I might be asked to do this. But it really was a surprise even though the timing was incredible. My firm, Checketts Partners Investment Management, was working to assist Joe Tsai and his investment in the Brooklyn Nets. Our work for Joe, who became a Nets minority partner, came to an end the day before this call came. It truly was right out of the blue. It was not something we applied for or raised our hand for."
