Prediction: Utah Jazz Forward Gordon Hayward Makes Team USA The Downbeat #1418

MyLo makes bold predictions. Gordon Hayward has been in the news a lot this summer whether it has been because of his OMG LOOK AT DAT CONTRACT DOE near max contract or his inclusion on the USA team before it makes its final cut.  Both have been overshadowed by his less than subpar 2013-2014 campaign as the go to player for the Utah Jazz.  Gordon Hayward has every right to be questioned as to whether he can live up to the billing of a near max player and if he can even be considered to be part of the final USA team.  So here am I, MyLo, making a bold prediction.  Hayward's contract...
