HYBRID

NBA ROLE: VERSATILE, TWO-WAY FORWARD

 

Gordon Hayward’s the basketball equivalent of a Swiss-army knife; all-purpose scorer: good shooter (hop shot guy), can hit J’s off the dribble – loves relying on a hanging runner (shoots it last minute) & slick step back J going right; super patient playmaker – Hayward pushes the button but falls back when necessary, will defer to other shot-creators; clutch performer: pilots the ship as a makeshift point forward, has delivered in the past as a Mariano Rivera-esque, shutdown closer in the 4th; solid on-ball defender, foul drawer & rebounder; still working on pacing after injury – more responsibility in 2020?; reunited w/ Brad Stevens in Boston – X-Factor, barometer for success
