My God. I don’t want to joke. I don’t want to make light of this situation. Gordon Hayward appears to have broken his ankle. I’m talking shattered. Within six minutes of tipoff. Absolutely sad.
Obviously our prayers have to go out to Hayward. For a guy who made such a difficult decision, this must be tearing him up inside.
As a Celtics fan, this is horrendous. For a season with such high, high, high Snoop Dogg high hopes, this is so deflating. I can barely watch this game now. I just feel like I watched the entire season collapse on itself within a matter of minutes.
Sure, the team will be good. Probably about the same as last year. Maybe a little worse now.
The fact is that someone will have to step up and take over a major roll now. You have no Avery Bradley to play lockdown defense, so it’s time to step up.
Honestly, it’s been pointed out a lot now but I agree. It looks a lot like Paul George’s injury from 2014 and he was able to return in April. That’s all of the good news I have for you, Boston. Go drink. Now.
Man, sorry Celtics fans. Looks like that big Finals run dream we had, just poofed.
