Limited Mens Desmond Bryant Jersey Stevens’ relationship with Hayward dates back a decade. At Butler, Stevens was the first to believe in Hayward, the small-college coach relentlessly pursuing the small-high-school player. Together, they advanced to a Final Four. Because of each other they became prized NBA commodities. And seven years after Hayward’s halfcourt heave nearly upended Duke in the national title game, Hayward and Stevens reunited to chase an NBA championship.

Inside the locker room, silence. Boston rallied valiantly, improbably, after Hayward’s injury. The Celtics fell behind by 18 and pushed back to lead by four only to lose 102-99. On one end, Horford, one of four returning players from last season’s 53-win team, dressed dutifully. He was on the floor when Hayward fell. He heard the sound. He saw the leg.

Asked how he responds to such fans, Mara said: I respond to them by saying that I prefer that our players stand. I’ve asked our players to stand.

Goodell said he has had no direct communication with Trump on the issue. He acknowledged that the anger by many fans has made the league’s handling of the matter a key issue to sponsors and those networks that televise NFL games. Goodell cited six or seven NFL players continuing to participate in protests during the anthem.
I understand what our fans feel about this issue, Goodell said. And we feel the same way about the importance of our flag, about the importance of patriotism. And I believe our players feel that way.
