What a a-hole
He can't play because his heart is still in Phoenix. What a damn joke this dude is!
So say he is hurt somehow again. Are we stuck with his contract or is there a way we can void it? Not that it would be smart i'm just curious at the options we have here at this point.
Yet another stupid move by Demps.
I'm not a hater of Demps but he's made two potential moves that could damage our team's future. His first one was the horrible trade he agreed to with LA so he could field a 8th seed team/middle of the pack team. Luckily Stern saved him on that one. Then, with all of the history of EG and Gordon making clear as day statements he wanted out, he STILL matches the offer. Now look where we stand.
Also on Monty because Monty strung the company line that Gordon was "the leader of our team that we need to keep". And there were a ton of media members also saying "match the offer, Gordon is worth pushing this under the rug for".
So a guy with no injury may miss the whole season? Or until December 15 when he gets what he wants which is a trade out of town. Either way I still support resigning him, he'll pass a physical and get a better haul than what would have been had in a s&t with Phoenix
@McNamara247 So there is nothing structurally wrong, but Gordon doesn't know if he will play this year? #IamDone
Given how awful this guy is with the media, does anyone think he isn't trying to force a trade at this point? Mysterious, phantom injuries can miraculously recover at any time, I'd imagine.

#Hornets @TheofficialEG10 says doctors see possible damage inside ailing right knee. http://bit.ly/SzCaI0
at this point I don't care what we can get for Gordon, lets just unload his contract and move on
Dudes a clown.
This guy just puts a damper on everything doesnt he? We had the season opener yesterday and ohhh erics not playing. Today its this... I feel like this could have probably waited for a little while.
We have the worst Training staff/doctors in the NBA. I mean this is part Gordon being fragile, and part our doctors being completely inept on making a diagnosis. For goodness sake we need new medical staff personel.

Monty's seems to be saying that the doctor's have cleared Gordon to play but that he is refusing to do do by claiming he is still injured. As an attorney, Gordon could potentially be breaching his contract. If a player is healthy enough to play and refuses to do so, he has breached his contract. The team might have a legal recourse to get out of this deal and get rid of the guy.
One quote is from Gordon himself, who knows if what he is saying is correct.
the other is an opinion.
I think what he need is for Monty to explain exactly what the doctors are saying about Gordon. Don't hold your breath because that won't happen.
