It’s a great day to be a fan of the Boston Celtics! Gordon Hayward has agreed to a four-year, $128 million deal to become a Boston Celtic. After much thought, Hayward decided that Boston was the place for him.
Here is how Twitter reacted:
Have to imagine Brad Stevens and Gordon Hayward will look to recreate this in the fall. #Celtics pic.twitter.com/noFdcuMm9t

celtics are still trying to win with a team whose best player is — no matter who you choose — a guy you don't want to be your best player.

So Gordon Hayward was conflicted and wrestling with the decision, yet he managed to own a 2100 word column on it. Legendary deadline writer.
