No, Gordon Hayward did not shade Jazz fans

Gordon Hayward

Gordon Hayward ruffled some feathers with a seemingly incendiary remark at his introductory Boston Celtics press conference on Friday, but the comments were actually more innocuous than they may have appeared.

At the presser, Hayward made a comment about how educated Boston sports fans seemed, per Brian Robb of Boston Sports Journal.

It was an assertion that was quickly interpreted by some as a shot at fans of the Utah Jazz team he left in free agency this summer to sign with the Celtics.

But a look at Hayward’s full remarks proved otherwise, as he was apparently discussing the Boston fanbase alone without trying to draw a comparison.

Nevertheless, both players and fans from the Utah side still seem bitter over Hayward’s exit, so they are probably after any ammo they can possibly find.
