Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward is upbeat for the upcoming 2019-20 season.
On his latest blog post, Hayward gave insights on what he was doing this summer in preparation for the new NBA year.
“I’ve had the opportunity to stay here in Boston and train at the facility with the staff all summer, and that has been great for me. Last summer had a lot of fits and starts in the recovery. I had that second surgery in the spring, so I was really hampered. It wasn’t like I even had the end of the summer to really fully train.”
He also shared his thoughts on the departure of Al Horford and Kyrie Irving as well as the arrival of Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter to Boston.
He mentioned that he’s excited to play along with Walker who he described him as a “game-changer”.
Hayward is also grateful that he is reunited with his long-time Utah Jazz teammate Enes Kanter and he’s sure that the Celtics fans will love the “UnderKanter”.
Hayward and the rest of the Celitcs was one of the early favorites to win the Larry O’Brien trophy last season.
Yet, they fell short and were stopped by the Milwaukee Bucks in the playoffs.
“The team’s goal is still the same. Nothing has changed for us. The Boston Celtics still want to raise Banner 18. That’s still the goal.”
