Gordon Hayward caught watching Utah Jazz highlights while playing Fortnite
It’s been over a year since Gordon Hayward left Salt Lake City for an opportunity to play with the Boston Celtics. Thanks to Donovan Mitchell and the relatively successful season his team just had, the Utah Jazz are doing just fine in moving on from any bitterness of the way they parted ways with Hayward.
Hayward, however, might still be nursing some post-breakup heartache with his ex-team.
In an undated photo, Hayward could be seen playing Fortnite, but the video game wasn’t the only one he’s paying attention to, as the right monitor of his computer setup clearly shows a YouTube highlights video of the Jazz.

A little magnification job revealed that the game Hayward was watching was played at his old stomping grounds AKA the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City.
Gordon Hayward, who is in the middle of his rehab process to get his body ready for the 2018-19 campaign after suffering a season-ending leg injury right in his very first game as a Celtic, spent his first seven seasons in the NBA in Utah.
During his free time, Hayward likes to play video games and, apparently, check on his old team from time to time. He seems to miss his Utah days, but Hayward can’t dwell that much on the past, as the Celtics have big expectations from him once he comes back into action.
