Comments on: An Exhaustive Analysis of the 4th Quarter of Gordon Hayward’s High School State Championship Game The ESPN TrueHoop Utah Jazz Site Thu, 18 Sep 2014 23:19:19 +0000 hourly 1 By: David Lyon Sun, 10 Nov 2013 00:48:16 +0000 Re Hayward: Mr. Hall: In all due respect you are far too pollyannish about Hayward. Go analyze the over/under stats this year – Hayward has the worst stat on the team in that regard. He does fine when the game is not on the line but becomes a shrinking violet in situations that matter. He has raw physical talent – approximating Larry Bird’s – but lacks a high basketball IQ. Keep track of the dumb plays he makes in fourth quarter situations – taking poor shots, driving the lane when there is no opening and turning it over, etc. The Jazz bet on the wrong horse when they drafted Hayward – clearly should have drafted Paul George. I predict (and I hope I am wrong) that the Jazz will go nowhere with Hayward as their “go to” player. I would get rid of him as quickly as I could for as much value as possible. Thanks for your comments. Always enjoy reading them. My best, DJL
