D’AMICO BOMB!!!! — Not really, but let me have this.
It’s been a little while since the Bench Mob has checked in on Gordon Hayward. He’s been in a hard cast ever since surgery, riding around on one of those cool little rest scooters that you put one knee on.
That thing must ZOOM. But I digress. The point is that Gordon is now out of his hard cast and is now in a walking boot.
I won’t overreact here and say that this is the most incredible news and that he is ahead of schedule and that he’s coming back even sooner now. That’s unrealistic and meant for me to do on my own time where I daydream about the Celtics still winning the title and running on the treadmill without feeling like I’m going to have a heart attack.
Gordon is on his way. This is just another step forward and that’s awesome to see. It helps that the Celtics are playing out of their minds right now. But this is something bigger than this season and it’s good to see Gordon back on the mend.
