VIDEO: Gordon Hayward gets the boo birds from Jazz fans
The relationship between Gordon Hayward and the Utah Jazz won’t likely be repaired any time soon after he left them in 2017 for the Boston Celtics. With that said, Jazz fans made sure to remind Hayward they still haven’t forgiven him for what he did.
Fans at the Vivint Smart Home Arena let Hayward know what they think of him every time he got the ball. The amount of boos he got clearly shows that he’s still the villain in their eyes.

Hayward and the Jazz used to have a great relationship. The team drafted him with the ninth pick in 2010 and took time to develop before becoming a star. During his last three years with the team, he averaged 20.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.2 steals on 45.0 percent shooting.
Unfortunately for Hayward, his career suffered a major setback after an ugly ankle injury he sustained in his Celtics debut against the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017.
Time may eventually heal all wounds and Gordon Hayward may be welcomed by the Jazz once again. Until then, he would have to make do with the hatred Utah hoops fans are lashing out at him right now.
