Re: NBA - Regular Season Discussion
Yea I thought it was start of season but it was after signing mid season. Shows how little I follow NBA. Just thought the connection of bad injury in debut was weird.To be fair, Bogut was a mid season acquisition and a sudden one at that. And at best, he was going to be a role player on 20 minutes a night.
Hayward was signed in the offseason, giving plenty of time of anticipation and build up to the moment he steps out on the floor with Boston. He was expected to be Boston's second best player. And he was coming off of arguably his best season.
This is simply heartbreaking stuff. I don't think Boston had any legitimate chance of beating Cleveland, but in the end that isn't what's important. This is a injury that could potentially impact Hayward as a player going forward. Hopefully that won't be the case and he can come back strong from this. Bogut is already well past his all-NBA third team days. Gordon's still in his prime.
