Dwyane Wade Hilariously Applauds Gordon Hayward For Silencing His Doubters

 

This past offseason, Gordon Hayward signed a four-year, $120 million deal with the Charlotte Hornets. By doing so, he became only the third player in NBA history to sign two different contracts worth $30+ million a year, next to LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

Ever sine his gruesome leg injury during his Celtics debut in 2017, Hayward has had a troubling injury history, and only was able to play an average of 41.6 games per season for the Celtics over the last three years.

His injury history and the fact that he’s already 30 years old, had the NBA world stunned about the value of his contract, and many people reacted by ripping Michael Jordan for being a bad franchise owner.

It’s always great to see things turn out differently than expected by the vast majority.

Hayward is coming off back-to-back 30-plus-point games for the first time since 2017 and continues to thrive as the top dog in Charlotte.

He not only is having career-highs in points (24.1) to go with 5.1 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.3 steals, he also is a current member of the 50/40/90 club.

If he continues to play like this, he will definitely be named an All-Star.

Hayward silencing his doubters now caused Dwyane Wade to react on Twitter. The three-time champion took his time to applaud Hayward for proving his critics wrong with his amazing performances.
