The Boston Celtics are currently the best team in the NBA with a record of 18-4 with the Detroit Pistons right behind them with a record of 13-6.

Gordon Hayward who left the Jazz this summer after having a great season with Jazz taking them to the second round of the playoffs. They lost to the best team in the NBA the Golden State Warriors who finished the season with a 67-10. He decided to head to Boston to further his career there but that didn’t end very well for him.

Hayward suited up for his first game on Tuesday, October 17 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. 5 minutes and 10 seconds, into the game Gordon Hayward jumped up for an alley oop. He landed on his left foot visibly bent. All the players on the court jumped and ran away from the disgust of his ankle.

In his first game of the season it only took him six minutes to have a season ending injury. The whole NBA was shocked and traumatized from the event. The Celtics lost the game against the Cavaliers, and lost against the Milwaukee Bucks trying to figure out what to do without their starting small forward. The Celtics figured something out and went on a 16 game winning streak. So the question is, would Gordon Hayward have helped the Celtics get to that the 16 game winning streak?

“ He definitely would have helped them get that streak,” said sophomore Brox Ashby, “ I think he would’ve helped them get to a 20 game winning streak.” The Celtics lost to the Miami Heat by six points and Gordon would’ve been great to have to help them with defense. Gordon Hayward is won of the most athletic small forwards in the league. His defense would have definitely have helped the Celtics. Also his ability to the rim would have helped Kyrie Irving his teammate, so that Kyrie wouldn’t have to do everything for the team.
