Gordon Hayward’s sponsor Purple Mattress had a controversy about white powder and boy is it wild.

In the tradition of great Jazz players with terrible sponsorships, you will not be disappointed. If you were like me, you very much enjoyed the Utah Jazz’s playoff run. Who doesn’t like 7 game series that go to the last game? And who doesn’t like sending the Clippers packing in the postseason? Not a single soul. But one of my most enjoyable parts of the postseason was the aggressive marketing campaign of one Gordon Hayward’s most unlikely corporate sponsors, Purple Mattress. If you were anywhere near social media it was impossible to escape their advertisement that featured Gordon...

Free Agency Rumor: Celtics focused on Gordon Hayward

Can the Celtics add an All Star in free agency for the 2nd year in a row? According to Adrian Wojnarowski (and just about every other NBA writer) the Celtics primary focus this summer is to make a strong run at free agent Gordon Hayward.

Hayward would not only solidify their attack in the immediate future, but he’s also young enough to grow with the Celtics developing young players and potential stars. Need a...
