Following an afternoon of conflicting reports and confusion regarding his free agency decision, Gordon Hayward opted to announce his move to the Boston Celtics with the now customary article in the Player’s Tribune.
Even though Hayward passed on a ‘Decision’ style announcement in favor of the article, it turns out the video game enthusiast previously parodied the famous LeBron James announcement for an eSports promotion back in 2011.
In the video, he announces he’s leaving Utah to join an eSports league, and laments how hard it will be to leave.
It’s not particularly well done, and Hayward looks like a bat boy for the Red Sox, but considering the hype surrounding his free agency, it’s a funny to hear him say he’s leaving he’s leaving Utah. Life imitates art.
