Gordon Hayward is known as an American professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. He is most famous for his excellent play at Butler University.
Gordon Daniel Hayward was born on March 23, 1990 in Indianapolis, IN. He was born to Gordon Scott Hayword and Jody Hayward. His father, Gordon, has been his basketball coach throughout the majority of his life. He concentrated on preparing him on skills that empowered him to turn into a fruitful guard with extraordinary ball handling skills and passing abilities. He has a twin sister named Heather Hayward who played tennis for Butler University.
He experienced childhood in Brownsburg, a community close to Indianapolis and he longed for playing in the NBA since he was the age of five. His fantasy was nurtured and pushed by his folks.
Hayward married Robyn Hayward on May 24, 2014, at St Simon the Apostle Church in Indianapolis. The two were engaged on December 25, 2013, five months after she completed high school. The two are honored with 3 children. Bernadette Marie was born on June 6, 2015, Charlotte Margaret was born on July 11, 2016, and Nora Mae was born on January 2019.
Before Robyn, he had dated his former sweetheart, Kolbi Killingback, but they isolated from each other in 2012.
After a successful run at Butler, Gordon confirmed that he would present his name in the 2010 NBA Draft/ On May 2010, he declared that he would forego his last 2 seasons of school qualification and enter the NBA draft and employed Mark Bartelstein as an agent. He got chosen as the ninth overall pick in the NBA draft by the Utah Jazz.
During the 2012-13 season, he wound up winning third-place for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year award. When Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson left during the 2013 offseason, he developed as the Jazz's main threat, averaging career highs per game in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. After he signed a 4-year contract with the Boston Celtics on July 14, 2017, he endured a broken tibia and dislocated lower leg in his left leg on October 17, 2017, almost 6 minutes into the Celtics regular season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers
In November 2019, Gordon Hayward cracked his left hand in the Celtics' 135-115 win over the Spurs. After two years fighting back both physically and rationally from the broken leg he endured five minutes into the 2017 season, Hayward was almost resembling his old self. The Celtics were moving, on top the Eastern Conference and maybe one reasonable trade away from being championship contenders.
