Hayward Sets Goal Of Making All-Star Team
Gordon Hayward is set to begin his critical third season in the NBA.
"I think I've shown that I belong in the league. It's something that you work for and you work towards," Hayward said. "Now I think I know that I belong and everything. Now you push yourself even further, try and become an All-Star. That's definitely a goal of mine, but I think first and foremost I think if we were to win games that will help that out."
Hayward has added five pounds of muscle in the offseason.
"I think as a player you kind of want to improve both as a team and individually from year to year," Hayward added. "I've done that from my rookie to sophomore year. Hopefully I'll do that again this year. Same goes for the team. We missed playoffs first year (39-43 in 2010-11), made it barely the second year, so this year needs to be better than that."
