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.
"Daddy's always happy"
Congrats to @gordonhayward and his family 🍼

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.
