Gordon Hayward = Manu Ginobili

yes i said this! they have very a like style of play, very a like skills set, both very good shooters but streaky, both have good first step, both great, great competitors! i would say that Manu is a little bit better passer and ball handler but Hayward good also.

Hayward is taller than Ginobili, a little less crafty, but has his feistiness. Similar body to Garcia but more overall talent and natural ability.

I wouldn't go that

I wouldn't go that far...Hayward is worth a shot but in my opinion he has a lot of bust potential.

If you have to compare him to anybody, I see Mike Dunlevey, pre-knee injuries.

"Gordon Hayward = Manu Ginobili"

Did anybody else read that, or is it just me? I really have to get my contact lens prescription updated.

Hayward doesn't attack the rim like Manu does, I don't think their style of play is very similar at all.

It is nothing short of

It is nothing short of ignorant to think Hayward would have a chance to be that good. First of all, Ginobili is a lock for the Hall-of-Fame. The rings, the international resume, and what he has meant to grow the game in South America guarantees it. Nobody has a better combination of winning in the NBA and internationally than Manu. It is impossible for Hayward to possibly match that level of achievement. Second, there is zero chance Hayward catches on with anyone the caliber of Tim Duncan. The Spurs get a ton of credit for their drafting late in the first and second rounds, but the presence of one of the best big men ever is a huge reason why. Life is easier when teamed with Tim Duncan. For which team is Hayward possibly going where the team has any chance of being better than mediocre? The other thing that works against Hayward is that mid-range shooters who can't defend don't offer the flexibility and versatility to succeed in a supportive role. Which team wants to give their 8th or 9th best player touches to make them worth having on the floor? It isn't like Hayward is a specialist like Korver or Kapono. He doesn't have great range and has been a very inefficient scorer against good teams at Butler. I don't think Hayward's career will age well. He'll start out on a bad team, and therefore get minutes and touches. Because they are so bad, they'll eventually bring in much superior talent pushing Hayward to the bench where he'll soon become invisible as Adam Morrison and Luke Walton have as their careers went on.

Jack Haley and Darko have rings too. It doesn't mean they weren't invisible during games.
