The fourth of July parties in Utah may not include booze, but they do include setting Gordon Hayward jerseys on fire.

Utah fans are very mad after the star forward — indecisively — spurned the Jazz to sign a four-year, $128 million deal with the Boston Celtics on Tuesday. There is even a #betrayward hashtag trending on Twitter.

And, naturally, Jazz fans are now burning their Hayward jerseys. At least Hayward’s decision was conveniently timed for when Jazz fans were already looking to set off fireworks.
