No team, GM, coach, or fanbase can sit back and say they prefer an injury-prone, shoot-first point guard who is impossible to understand over two of the three best players in the National Basketball Association, one of the greatest shooters of all-time with a legit defensive game, and a player that can dominate on both ends of the court.

"The hardest part of the whole process has been the mental challenge", Hayward said Thursday, reporting that he is 100 percent healthy and preparing to be on the court for the October 16 opener against the Philadelphia 76ers. Within the past two weeks, he has been able to play five-on-five basketball. Hayward says he plans to fully utilize the next month to get back into game shape.

"There's certain things that are going to take time". "It was the most hard thing I've done".

On the other side of the net, though, the 20-year-old Osaka kept her cool in her first Grand Slam final to win 6-2 6-4. Ramos has since spoken out about the backlash via Portugal's Tribuna Expresso .

"With each step I get some joy", said Hayward, who then slipped into his Celtics uniform and took part in a photoshoot. He's looking to regain his timing and rhythm, and he is eager to regain the groove with his teammates.

Hayward said he gained a lot of confidence from watching the team compete last season, so he's eager to finally join them on the floor. Like many of his teammates, he expressed no concerns about starting versus coming off the bench. "My goal is to help us get that banner". "It'll be a great opportunity to start afresh with a brand new team, though we do have a lot of guys back, and see if we can be the best version of ourselves". Given that LeBron James is now out of the East - he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, meaning his eight-year run of being on the team that wins the East is ending - Boston figures to be a popular pick to reach the NBA Finals next season.
