Nice, insightful article. Hayward has always conducted himself with class. His
calm demeanor Is a real plus as he competes day in and day out against the best
talents in the NBA. Hopefully Jazz management can surround him and the other
young players with the talent they need to compete for a championship, starting
with a strong, reliable point guard. Good luck, Gordon, and Go
I didn't know Hayward shaved!
@Jody GenessyThanks for taking the time to write a great article
about Gordon Hayward and his family. It isn't often that we (as fans) get
to know the man behind the basketball player.
@Go RedA championship?
It is a good thing that Gordon's "hairy chest" did not get in the
way of his shaving. Now if Corbin will just let the younger guys play and get a
lot of minutes you might see one of them break out into a great player. You
noticed I did not say "All Star player.' Today's All Stars are
nothing but a popularity contest. Ming got voted in every year and the last
three years he hardly played in a game.
@Little AndyI agree..that it's a popularity contest...because
majority of the vote comes from the fans...think about it...in yao ming's
case...there is more than a billion chinese in the world...and he is their
nation's pride...like Manny Pacquiao is to the Philippines...so
yeah...they'll vote for him...even if he played just 5 mins the entire
season...Allen Iverson has a ton of fans...still got voted in...and...im sure
that the least likely to get voted in would be the players in a Jazz
uniform...unless this team...surprises everyone and dominates...they won't
get the attention they deserve...the good side is...we dont have a lot of
bandwagon fans....like the Lakers...the Heat and The Celtics...
this is a great article...and probably the main reason he was drafted...its
because you know he'll try to make the right basketball decision...he
isn't at par with a guy named John Stockton with that...but having a great
family like he has...and the way he is raised...you know that this kid will only
succeed...and i am pretty sure...if Gordon Hayward was a free
agent...there'll be a lot of teams lining up to get him...a very heady and
efficient player...plays solid D...and yeah...he needs to shoot more...we all
know he could score...we all know he'd make the right decision...so i just
hope he puts it up more...reading this made me respect Hayward a little bit
more...and made me more of a fan of his...so i hope we lock him up...cause the
kid can play...the coach just have to release the beast within him...he could
put up a 20-5-5 line someday
Gives a bit more context to the "wet willie" from Delonte West.Hayward never responded because he has self control and restraint. Very tough
to do and a rare quality these days.I'm glad Hayward is on our
