From that interview ...
Lowe: Who is your top competition for the honor of King of the Chase-Down Block?Hayward: Competition? I think LeBron sets the standard on that.Lowe: I feel like he's dialed it back a bit, and that people are afraid of him now.Hayward: Then I don't know. I really don't see that many of them. For whatever reason, guys just let people go. I always try to go for it.
Hayward certainly went for it Friday night against the Clippers.

Does that overtake Hayward's personal favorite, a chase-down block on Chris Paul when Hayward was a rookie?
