No shame in owning a man crush, never ever ever. One heterosexual man professing an over-the-top fondness for another man is as normal as it gets, as an entire generation weaned on Jon Hamm’s square jaw and quick wit can attest. That Jon Hamm is a handsome fella. Handsome, handsome fella.
Where was I? Oh, yes, a man crush – nothing wrong with it. Now, indirectly equating the work of Utah Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward to the peak years of Tracy McGrady’s time in Orlando? Now there’s an abomination above all. Shame on you, Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers.
Asked about the Jazz’s fourth-year swingman before Wednesday night’s preseason game and the Clippers head coach had to interrupt.
"I have a man crush on that guy," Rivers said. "He’s really good."
But Rivers also foresees a tough year ahead for the promising Hayward. As he spoke to reporters before the game, Rivers reflected back on his time as the head coach of the Orlando Magic, when Grant Hill was out with an injury and Tracy McGrady became the team’s only real scoring threat.
"I just always felt bad for [McGrady]," he said. "When you’re the guy and you’re the only guy for a while — there’s other guys, but I’m talking superstar — that’s a hard job and Gordon will find that out this year."
Now, Rivers didn’t directly align Hayward’s 2013-14 potential in his upcoming fourth season with McGrady’s fourth season and first without Grant Hill, one in which T-Mac averaged a gangbuster 26.8 points per game alongside a combined 12.1 rebounds/assists and a combined three blocks/steals, but even the sheer mention leaves us a little put off.
