Gordon Hayward says he's kept his beard so he doesn't look like a child

Friday November 28th, 2014

Baby-faced Jazz forward Gordon Hayward definitely still gets carded at the liquor store, and probably at R-rated movies, too. But he's actually 24 years old.

Hayward has found a solution, though. Lately, he's been sporting a beard and a stylish new haircut. He was asked Friday about his grooming choices and offered an explanation.

Really, Gordon? Let's compare this to what he said last week.
