Gordon Monson of the St. Lake Tribune thinks that Utah Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward has what it takes to become an All-Star. He gave four specific reasons why.

"1) Hayward is getting more comfortable in his circumstances; 2) He’s more confident with his shot; 3) His all-around game is extensive; 4) He can play defense; and 5) The Jazz need him to play at that level," he noted.

As fantasy folks know, the trouble is that he hasn't made that leap from OK to excellent; to wit, he is averaging an enticing, yet mediocre, 14.5 ppg, 3.0 apg, 1.3 3-ppg and 44.5 FG% this month. Teammate Earl Watson thinks Hayward may be too unselfish.
