Al Horford thinks people don’t know how good Gordon Hayward really is
As Boston Celtics star forward Gordon Hayward prepares his for his return, teammate Al Horford is slowly hyping up his teammate. Horford believes that people don’t know how good Hayward really is.
As reported by Taylor Snow of celtics.com, Horford claimed that Hayward can do so many things on the floor.
“People have some idea, but I don’t think they realize how good Gordon really is. He can do so many things on the floor. He just does it all. I think he’s going to really open the game up & make people better.”
Hayward’s season was cut short last year after a freak injury on opening night. Though shorthanded, the Celtics managed to make it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Now, with the impending return of Hayward, the Celtics are loaded more than ever. He’ll join stars Kyrie Irving and Horford. Not to mention Jayson Tatum who has quickly established himself as one of the rising stars in the league.
In his final season with the Utah Jazz where he played and started 73 games, Hayward logged in 21.9 points per game, 5.4 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. He also made his first All-Star appearance in that year.
Indeed, Celtics fans are patiently waiting for Hayward to suit up. This looks like another promising year for the Celtics.
