    US may have difficulties in putting a team together.

    Saw something on Twitter today about Jae Crowder being upset that Boston fans were cheering for Gordon during lineup announcements at the game in Boston last night. Guess he doesn't take kindly to Boston's fans openly courting his replacement. It would be pretty neat to watch Gordon play for Brad in the NBA.

    If Utah considers Gordon a star, I think the new CBA is going to keep Gordon in SLC

    Hayward with the all-star nod.

    He played really well last night. I hope the Stifle Tower's knee heals quickly. Doc Rivers is a terrible GM. It's so sad to see that team wasted.

    I'm not sure he would go to Celtics, honestly. I'm not convinced IT is the type of PG you will win championships with and not sure he would really elevate Hayward's game like other PG's can do. Would most likely take a step backwards on the stats sheet and could miss being an All Star again.

    Agree on IT. Little Carmelo Anthony as far as dishing.

    Well you better let him know quick since the only meetings he has set up after free agency begins are with Miami and Boston https://sports.yahoo.com/sources-celtics-working-land-gordon-hayward-paul-george-181020436.html).

    Boston finished tied for third (in the entire league) in assists per game this past year. I don't think they need a traditional pass-first point guard to keep their offense humming, especially when you have great passers at other positions like Al Horford. Also, like most other All Star NBA wings, Gordon can create his own shot.

    Other than no state income tax, I'm not sure what the allure of Miami is.

    Cuban Sandwiches, Beaches, beautiful woman, Nikki Beach, rampant STD's, terrible drivers, super hot summers, would have to buy Rosetta Stone for Spanish. Actually maybe Boston would be better

    High taxes, bitter cold winters, and snow fall measured in feet?

    The real question that needs to be asked is "where does his sister live?"

    Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra are better than Danny Ainge and Brad Stevens or even Quin Snyder and Dennis Lindsey? Weather for sure, but really Hayward's wife would be getting more enjoyment out of that (which is a factor, happy wife, happy life) considering how little time off they have during the season. Plus they've already got a house out in California for the offseason. The 5% difference in salaries isn't insignificant (difference in the Massachusetts and Florida state income tax rates), but in Utah and Boston he's got a shot at being a real factor in the postseason (not a great shot, IMO, but a shot). In Miami they'll have a similar team to Utah in the East, which means they might win a playoff series and get bounced or swept in the next round.
