Hello! Today, IGN.com announced that Gordon Hayward will be playing in IPL 3. In addition, TL.net posted a great interview with him.
However, a news article on CBS.com ( http://www.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/22748484/31802184 ) essentially bashed e-sports (specifically StarCraft 2) and said that the idea that Gordon is playing StarCraft 2 while the NBA is in a lockout is an "embarrassment". He bashes the idea of video games and nerds without having an open mindset. This article additionally posts other random false facts about the Gordon Hayward situation. The article basically shits on StarCraft 2.
Here are a few quotes from the article:
"When a 21-year-old, 207 pound forward doesn't immediately recoil in horror when asked to compare the stress and rigors of the NBA to a freaking science fiction video game we know that the NBA game has been cleaned up too much. If a Zerg attack really gets his blood pumping as much as a game-winning shot, that's a terrible look. We don't want to live in a world where this can be true, do we?"
"Hopefully Hayward's interview gets entered into evidence in the ongoing collective bargaining agreement negotiations so we can turn back the clock and undo this embarrassing chapter in the history of the league."
"DeseretNews.com reports that Hayward will be playing video games professionally." (Seriously? Inviting a low level player to an amazing tournament to gain publicity makes him a professional StarCraft 2 player?)
Please discuss your opinions on the article, but do not turn this into an all-out bashing/flame war thread. Don't step to their level.
Edit: PLEASE stop calling the author a "F**k tard" or anything of that nature. Stay civil.
