    Went to the game, Hayward looked kinda lost out there. But I love the guy, he has great potential if he can get his head in the game. The potential of this team is huge when they all play their game.

    Evans has some serious hops, I wonder if he can shoot the ball and play some defense? I agree, he needs more minutes.

    I like this guy. He seems to be very effective when on the court. I don't understand why Jerry doesn't give him 10 minutes a game. Those 10 minutes would keep other players minutes down over the course of the season. He doesn't hurt the team when on the court. Put Price and him on the court at the same time and that is a lot of energy.

    Evans is our new Brewer. And a bargain Brewer at that -- a second rounder.

    As much as I love him, Jeremy wouldn't be able to play the 2 spot. Don't be fooled he's bigger than you think, he actually played center in college and was getting playing time in this game in place of Fransisco Elson. I don't see moving him to the 2-guard as a very good idea.

    Watching Evans Play and Hayward struggle... How long will it be before Jerry tries Evans in the starting role (due to injuries or course)instead or Hayward?? Jeremy can defend at least as well as Hayward against any two guard or small forward and at the same time brings instant energy and excitement.

    Gotta love Jumpin' Jeremy! I'd love to see him put on some muscle along with that length and athleticism. He'd be tough to guard on a jump shot if he can develop that. But we'll take the dunks too!

    I was listening to the warriors telecast and they talk about how little hayward has done, and then u have refs giving preferential treatment to r.williams early in the game it seems that people really hope against haywards success, so the way teams come out with him in the lineup, everyone is trying to make it difficult, and refs are making blatantly bad calls just because hes in the play,
    on the other hand, he hasn't been hitting his open jump shots and he has to do that to be a valuable part of the team, and that will help silence all the critics, like mathews broke into the lineup, haywards just got to keep his head down and hit open jump shots, the one thing he's doing that is good is staying in front of his guy, hes even recovered for blocks from behind, but he's got to be ready to hit open jump shots because that's kind of important part of how he's going to help the team right now, and truth is we could use another shooter too.

    One of these days, we're not going to be surprised to see Jeremy, Fes & Gordon on the floor at the same time.
    Way to go, sky high Jeremy!

    Evans is awesome. Everyone loves a high flyer. Not to mention he sounds like the epitomy of a team player. I hope he gets some more minutes cause I love watching him play.

    PS Keep lifting and work on that jump shot!
