The "Hayward's Injury" thread just seemed too plagued by demons to have it renamed and continue. We need a new thread for our now fully-capable Shooting Guard and his exploits.

The very latest exploits in his life, however, were off the court: this hilarious gender-reveal video on his wife's instagram:


He looks soooooooo excited to be having a third girl. Out-daughtered again, buddy!

Gordo, you have to hug and kiss your wife in those instances.

Maybe it’s just me, I thought his disappointment was kind of cringe worthy and tough to watch. I’m surprised his wife actually went through with posting the video after it turned out the way it did.

I was more disturbed by her "hashtag" in the post. Like, c'mon Robyn, either you were on birth control or you weren't. What exactly do you think "planned" consists of? All apologies if the pill failed you, but three times? That just looks like carelessness.

Meh she doesn't seem super down about it, and probably a bit tongue-in-cheek. Most likely "unplanned" here just means "didn't lay out a plan to have a baby, but we can afford it easily, and I like having lots of kids around."

You're not alone.

man, some of you are being awfully uncharitable here. He just seems like a guy who thinks gender reveal antics are dumb but are important to his wife so he's going along with it. He probably doesn't care if the baby is a boy or girl and isn't going to jump up and down and get worked up either way.

I laughed. When my sister found out about her second she texted everyone with the following: “It’s another boy.” Her disappointment is still funny to this day.

Doesn’t mean she loves the kid any less because he’s a Ben instead of a Jen.

Is Hayward able yet to jump up and down?

His reaction is how I would act at a gender reveal even if I had specifically chosen every base in the child's DNA.

It’s a running anecdote in my family that my mom cried for two weeks after I was born because she wanted another girl (eldest is a girl, middle is a boy, I’m youngest). She laughs her ass off every time she tells it.

Yes, it was discussed, to remove hardware.
Thank you - I vaguely recall it now (I need to get hardware removed or added to my brain). The other reason I wondered is that on the NBA radio morning show, they were acting as if this was just disclosed. To be clear, they didn't make a big deal out of it.

I would be asking myself how I got roped into this 21st Century ceremony.

He mentions a second surgery in late May. Perhaps I missed it but did we discuss that here?

The titanium screws were abrading his peroneal tendon, without whose cooperation, or at least compliance, running is darn near impossible.

My right ankle's peroneal tendon bought the farm in 2012, and I won't be running again until the afterlife.

I would love to see a professional basketball player put out a rehab or workout video just of them bricking shots endlessly for the parody.

No, just him on a scale of him being back to the player he was.

EDIT: But I'm not doubting him on the other thing though!

Wyc needs to takeover Pure Sweat.

Move Drew and his team to Cambridge. Have them work strictly with Celtic and Red Claw players 24/7.
