    @ BobbyPaluga - Austin TX:

    "Jordan Haywood"? Haven't heard much about him. Is he a promising prospect? Do you think he'll be as good as Gordon Hayward? Better, perhaps?

    Hated to see Jordan Haywood go down with a really bad left leg injury. He's not dying, he remains a young guy with most of his life in front, able to do anything he and his family wish to do with the NBA millions. The injury may be painful, he may be dissappointed, but all the crying???
    I've got to give the Jazz fans Big-Time credit for not getting nasty, ridiculing Jordan or claiming Karma. He was terrific at Utah, it's not that he left, but that he was a Jazz man bringing his game.

    I don't know how anybody who saw that injury can feel anything but compassion for Gordon. It does seem to put the events of last summer into perspective. You can still respect someone even when they make a decision you don't like.

    I agree that he is a good man and a classy guy. Everyone can agree that an injury like this is tough. HOWEVER, let's not forget that he continues to receive a paycheck and that he and his family will be just fine, even if he never plays basketball again.

    He is blessed with a talent that has already provided a lifetime of income for him and his family. In almost any other career where his physical abilities are the primary driver of his value, he would now be without pay and facing bankruptcy and uncertainty for his family.

    Good luck with him on his recovery. I may still be mad about him leaving for Boston, but I always have understood that he was doing what he thought was best for his career and family. He is a good guy and I only wish him well.

    This Hayward is a classy guy. I hope he has a full recovery...and loses every game against the Jazz.
