Boston Celtics: Gordan Hayward’s hopes and dreams crushed

Boston Celtics star Gordon Hayward had his hopes and dreams come crashing down in one fleeting moment…

By Neil Harrington

Gordon Hayward‘s time with the Boston Celtics has been a rough go around in his near 12 months with the NBA franchise, starting with a devastating injury just minutes into his first game in the Irish green uniforms setting the tone nearly a year ago.

After months of rehab and determination, the NBA star is set to return — better than ever.

That was until Gordan Hayward received terrible news a few days ago. Before you Boston Celtics faithful begin running to the window towards the edge of a tall building; his leg is fine.

This newfound revelation has to do with the hopes and dreams of Hayward’s NBA legacy continuing through his bloodline — which took a major setback after the gender-reveal of his third child.


There go the balloons, floating away — just like his hopes and dreams of having a boy.

“Daddy’s always happy.”

Mr. Hayward didn’t seem too happy here. The “excitement” in his voice says it all.

For a split-second, I thought Gordon Hayward was going to choke out each of those balloons like Darth Vader does with Imperial Officers and Rebel scum.

Or better yet, I thought he was going to turn to his wife and say, “you have failed me for the last time.”

Scientifically, it’s more his fault than hers, and I believe he realizes that truth.

Anyways, Gordan Hayward’s road to recovery — not from his gruesome injury, but from the gender reveal will take time to mend his broken heart and aspirations.

The only remedy is for “round four” to produce a “buck” the next go around. Unfortunately, it’s up to a Higher Power and not Gordan Heyward, who may revert to some crazy rituals in his efforts in producing a male offspring.

Ole Jobu is always up for helping those in need; especially when matters are worse. If he can assist in helping Pedo Serrano in hitting a curveball, he can sure help Gordan Hayward and family in their conceiving efforts.


Or, maybe he can turn to Michael Scott and the Dunder Mifflin crew in Scranton, PA; who know a thing or two about breaking curses.

“Maybe there’s some sort of animal, that we could make a sacrifice too. Like a giant buffalo, or some sort of monster, like something with the body of a walrus with the head of a sea lion. Or something with the body of an egret with the head of a meerkat. Or just… the head of a monkey, with the antlers of a reindeer, with, ah… the body of a porcupine.”

There is a God after all, and he has a plan for you Mr. Hayward, after all — hang in there, buddy.

Once Heyward’s wife births his third girl and gives her enough time to recover, I know he’ll be back at it again — in his (boy) baby-making efforts.

Even if those efforts indeed fail, he has a beautiful wife and three precious daughters — so life isn’t all terrible. Or, checking his bank account -is an excellent reminder that everything you’ll be just fine.

But knowing Heyward’s grit and determination, he’ll have 10, 15, or even 20 little girls if that means getting to one boy — who will carry on his NBA (bloodline) legacy.
