@XertThanks for posting a great comment; especially, your last two
sentences.Basketball is after all just a game. Hayward's
career-threatening injury is far more important than who won or lost last
night's game.Get well soon Gordon.
Utah is cheering for you Gordo! You're a good guy and no one should have
to go through this. Come back stronger!
At least Dante's injury wasn't this bad...I feel bad for the guy.
He's going to be out a long time.
I don't want to look at it and I want to envision Gordon coming back from
this. It can be done. We are not living in the Joe Theisman days of rehab and
recovery and Gordon is one of the most strong minded individuals in sports. He
will come back from this and I will be pulling for him along the way. Folks, if
you meet one person who finds joy in this--take the time to let them know that
this is a moment that they can use to be less like the hateful nation that we
are being divided into. Good luck Gordon! Heal up completely and quickly!
My family and I were literally brought to tears as you lay on the ground with
your leg facing north and your foot facing west.Godspeed Gordon.We are praying for you, and we hope this is not a career ending
injury.Hopefully your ankle was just dislocated and not shattered.Utah fans were oh so jilted when you chose the Iconic Celtic Jersey over
the Wannabee Jazz.(Who can blame you?)As for me and my house,
I am now your biggest fan and wish you only good health and success.
Such a sad incident. I was planning to follow Boston as my 2nd favorite NBA team
mainly because of Hayward. He’s such a classy player and my favorite
athlete. Shame on any Jazz fan that says that’s what he gets for leaving
us. Gordon Hayward is the last person that deserves that kind of talk. Praying
for a full recovery!
@LiaI also thought about Joe Theismann's injury. Very difficult
to watch. Strange that something this severe could happen in basketball.
Hopefully Gordon will be back next year, but I don't see him being able to
come back this season. Sorry to see this happen.
What a terrible injury! I feel really bad for Hayward and wish him a quick
recovery. I doubt he will be back this year. Bad luck for the Celtics.
Get well soon Gordon!From a Gordon Hayward fan since 2010.
I feel for you, Gordon. I've seen you do similar plays many, many times.
Get well. Next year will come soon enough.
Harder to watch than Joe Theismann's injury.Hope there's no
Sorry to see this happen to what seems to be a solid guy and a budding
superstar. Hopefully he can come back from this completely.
Gordon seems like a good guy. So sorry this happened to him.
Gordon thanks for all the years of of enjoyment watching you. You and your
family are in our prayers .
Oh bummer! Oh (big swear words)! I wouldn't wish this on anybody in the
NBA, and NOT for Hayward, no matter how angry I was for his departure. Hope for
his full recovery and return to a successful career, which he truly does
deserve. So sad for this bad turn of events for him. Bummer!!!
On another site some people were blaming James and Crowder. Not so. It was just
a play that went wrong. Another blamed the training staff. ???? Don't think
they had anything to do with it. No one likes to see anyone hurt. But like with
Exum injury happens. Good luck to him on a recovery.
So sorry Gordon, all the preparation and training and hard work and for that to
happen is a let down. Sorry to hear that happen to you.Probably
some of the water you drank while in Utah, where the injury bug is alive and
