Watch Doc Rivers repeatedly call Gordon Hayward ‘Haywood’ (video)

3 Comments

Gordon Hayward was an All-Star. He helped the Jazz beat the Clippers in their first-round series. He could become the first designated veteran player.

But Clippers coach Doc Rivers kept calling the Utah forward “Haywood” throughout the series.

Hayward, via Ryan McDonald of the Deseret News:

“No, it does not bug me,” he said. “People have been saying that my whole life, spelling my name wrong, saying my name wrong. Doesn’t bother me…it is what it is.”

Add this to the list of things that separates Hayward from Meyers Leonard.
