Look i think we can all agree we are frustrated. Frustration leads to saying things that may be incorrect or rush to judgement. We're fans. Thats what we're supposed to do.
Bottom line is Eric AND the Hornets have had over a year to get this thing right.
I don't blame anyone on here and i'm certainly not going to apologize.
If he gets healthy and goes out and activates beast mode everyone will love him again.
Such is the life of a sports fan.
It's a "what have you done for me lately" world to quote the godfather of the whodat nation.. lol
Eric Gordon is officially the biggest ***** in the NBA.
I'm not falling for the PR okie doke....there is a REASON the media escorted him out yesterday and didn't let him speak until today. I'm done with it personally. We made a bad financial decision and every GM makes at least 1. I will give 2 ***** about dude until we get something for him or his balls finally drop and he plays. Until then my focus is on the guys on the court....
The way he started out the press conference with the organizational love was phony to me and he was obviously told to do that by his people. Yes we have been waiting for him to say something like that but it was forced and out of place here.
Enough is enough with this clown. People need to stop defending him.
is it truly hard to understand that athletes get injured more than once, some more prone to others... i think the biggest thing everybody is looking for is clarity, truth, and honetsy which also falls on the team and not just eg
At this point with him only playing 9 games he need to come out with the truth...even if that means he has to go through all the tests before you address the media. For better or worse I think most fans don't want to hear spin...we want to know what the **** is going on. And thats goes for the Hornets and Gordon. Stop being so guarded about the situation...the've invested the money but the fans have invested our hopes that this guy could play. So we are owed and ACTUAL explination.
In my opinion I would have waited until he got all these tests done before even speaking on it. And it should have been done a long time ago instead of the day before the damn season started...
1.) Dude doesn't speak until today in some rehearsed speech about how much of an honor and privilege it is to play for the Hornets AFTER he said his heart was in Phoenix. Not buying it. His agent and the Hornets probably told him to act appreciative and thankful so Gordon won't look like a child that wants out. At least Gordon's reputation won't be tarnished around the NBA, and the Hornets may get a better trade deal.
2.) I also agree about your feeling going forward. I'm done with dude. Only worried about players that have embraced this organization and city and want to be here. From now on, win or lose, I'll be following the progress of Davis, Rivers, Anderson, and others. Don't have time for diva NBA players and their negativity. It's nothing but a drain on teammates and fans.
This organization has been through enough with the Baron Davis silliness, JR Smith saga, the post 2008 seasons where we were strapped with bad contracts + lack of ownership stability. It's time for fans of this team to be able to watch these guys every night w/out a feeling of uneasiness. NO MORE! NO....MORE!
Bull. Crap. I don't wanna hear no mess about different people. Where's the statute of limitations? Cuz that's one slippery *** slope.
He comes off as bipolar to me.
Not sure how to feel about this. I think the press conference didn't sound as bad as the quotes made it out to be. Also, I'm not a doctor and can't speak with authority on knee problems.
But... It sure seems like the someone is hiding something. The way the Hornets hustle him out one day, and then the next day he's giving us the speech about how much he loves the city and organization. Something is just not right.
Who is Eric Gordon and why should I care? #movingon
Unfortunate indeed but I will continue living and watching my team. GEAUX HORNETS!!
He honestly seems humbled by this... But we'll see whenever he gets back if its real or an act. Ill give him five games.
