Gordon Hayward, Colts, Boston Celtics discussed on The Pat McAfee Show 2.0


And when you're kicking to lot of knee stuff. So I'd be like half swinging it in the ball would be going pretty good like it would have kept me a job with the half swing. But if I really wanted to go, I like had to really in my head be like, all right. I'm gonna really swing at this potentially blow money back out again whenever all the doctors are like not your knees. Good you just gotta go for it. You just gotta go for, but in the back of your mind, you're like, yeah, if I go forth, and I got to go through a surgery again, I gotta do that. It really is a mental block, and people just assume because they play video games and you see other people come back from injuries. But I think all professional athletes that go through surgery. Have that mental block, where they're like men. I do not wanna blow us out again, because there's a lot of money on the line. There's a lot of pressure on the line. There's another rehab stint that has to go through. So it's a real. It is a real hurdle. I had it with my knees. It's which is a much smaller situation than having a blown ankle in basketball when everything revolves around jumping and running, but it is something that you really got about. That's why was I was like so intrigued to ask him because I didn't even think about the not even gelling with your team didn't even think about like oh, you know what? Yeah. This guy hurt himself. He comes back to form. He'll be good. It was like didn't even think about him never playing with those guys did not necessarily any of them rooting for him the comeback because taking playing time money will use. He's been in the other side of that coin. When you had high price free agents come into the colts of silly in a couple of got hurt and didn't play. And then it kind of changes the way you think about someone unless they can come back and contribute unless they weren't there as you come back. You know there was some people that got hurt, and then it seemed like they just didn't care. So they'll all they did was just scrape off our salary cap make us a worse team. And it's like this guy was this guy hit what is this guy doing? It sounds like Gordon Hayward feels like he owes the Boston Celtics. And that's a, that's a cool thing to have. I hope they do. Well, I'm very thankful. He came on and it was him think. Yeah. I'm still gonna five percent. Maybe green text messages. Apparently, it does research on his phone. I mean he's right. I'm saying, I'm a coke guy to just go to blindly go to apple. You can take it easy argue it's the other way that people who are. Yes, grandstanding that you need to get a Google pixel or something. That's the Colt, right there, sports psychologist, by the way meeting with sports. Psychologists also pretty big thing that happens with a lot of professional athletes. Not a lot of people were like open with it either. So I was very thankful that he said that because every L professional athletes, they don't wanna show weakness, right? A weakness means it could potentially be cut. It means that they could potentially fail. It means they're not these superstars that a lot of people make them out to be him being, like I had to meet with sports psychologists is really cool of him, by the way, very humble of him to admit the is that what they call it. Like when you get the. The is whenever you start getting like paralysis by analysis, when you start over thinking, everything the mental hurdle could be a type of Yip, I guess, but more, so that's with technique normally, the come through technique when you're over thinking, when you're like, okay, the thing, that's kind of the gifts, essentially, right like less, they're less. They're not being able to throw to first base. That's more of a mental hurdle. A Yip is like whenever you're going to shoot like let's say goes into a a coach streak..
