ESPN's Chris Haynes on Hayward, NBA Scoops, and the Warriors Beat
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver are joined in Las Vegas with ESPN's Chris Haynes. At the outset, they talk through the mechanics of Haynes' 4th of July reporting on Gordon Hayward's free agency. When did he know? How did he handle the backlash? Did he ever worry that he might swing Hayward's decision and become a lifelong villain in Boston? Then they talk through the culture of scoops, in general, and the lessons Haynes has learned over the past few years. At the end, Haynes talks about beat reporting with the Cavs and Warriors, the differences between the two teams, and the fashion advice he's gotten from Draymond Green.
