DeMar DeRozan wants to remind everyone - including Skip Bayless - that some things are bigger than basketball.

After Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward suffered a fractured left ankle during the NBA's season opener Tuesday night against the Cavaliers, Bayless chimed in by suggesting Cleveland's road back to the Finals will be easier now that Hayward is seemingly out of the picture.

This didn't sit well with DeRozan, who blasted the Fox Sports host on Twitter for thinking more about how the Celtics and Cavaliers are affected by Hayward's absence and less about Hayward's well being.
