After a season ending injury shown around the world, Gordon Hayward will make his big return to the floor this season. But will it be all it’s been added up to be?

Hayward, former shooting guard for the Utah Jazz, is finally coming back for this NBA season for the Boston Celtics. Since Hayward was a fan favorite when he was on the Jazz, many Utah Jazz fans have different opinions about him now because of the switch.

“While Gordon played for the Jazz he was such a good player and did so much for our team,” says Austin Berk a junior at Hillcrest High.

Berk is a longtime Jazz fan and was devastated when he heard the news that Hayward was leaving for the Celtics. It was one of the hardest times for most Jazz fans.

Hayward played with the Jazz from 2010-2017. During his rookie season, he averaged 8.1 points a game, and the ending of the Jazz season was averaging 20.0 points a game. His average last season with the Celtics was 2 points per game. Many would argue that this could be due to karma, while others feel it was an unfortunate accident.

“I bet he’s going to retire,” said Haris, a junior at Hillcrest High.

Although this is a very controversial topic, one will just have to see how the season plays out. Especially for the long awaited game on November 9th, when the Jazz play the Celtics. For many Jazz fans, this is an opportunity for them to express their frustration with Hayward by booing him on his return.
