    He probably thought you were reffering to the Joe Gerrity interview where he asked Gordon if "his heart" would be in New Orleans if we rolled out an orange carpet for him and had 100 people cheering for him as he exits the gym.

    Talked to EJ via DM on Twitter, and he told me the veterans (Gordon, Anderson, Mason, Warrick, Lopez, Smith) will be in New Orleans throughout the week, and are free to leave after this week until they meet up again for training camp, but the young guys (Aminu, Vasquez, Rivers, Davis, Miller, Henry, Roberts) have to stick around until training camp starts.

    Yes, I have an open line to talk to Eric Gordon on Twitter :-)

    EJ has even agreed to donate a signed item to the Salvation Army that I work at to be auctioned off in September.

    He might not cut it or get all that much playing time, but why so harsh already?

    Yeah, I'd love for Warrick to become effective enough to get a 2nd from a playoff team with a trade exception at the deadline.

    **** yeah. I have no problem with that. He isn't a part of this team's future and he knows it too.

    Most of the players are new, so I guest they want to get to know each other.

    Lopez on coming to NOLA: "I'm excited to be here. We've got a young, energetic group... Hopefully we can parlay that into something special"

    Jim Eichenhofer ‏@Jim_Eichenhofer
    Lopez on Anthony Davis' defense: "From what I've seen, he's got great timing, is long and athletic. Hopefully we can close down some lanes"

    Jim Eichenhofer ‏@Jim_Eichenhofer
    Lopez said former high school teammate Quincy Pondexter "had nothing but fantastic things to say about Monty and how he develops players."

    Jim Eichenhofer ‏@Jim_Eichenhofer
    Lopez joked to a TV guy getting a bit close while clipping on a mike:"Usually you have to take me to dinner a couple times first to do that"

    Jim Eichenhofer ‏@Jim_Eichenhofer
    There are 11 Hornets players working out in the Alario Center today. Robin Lopez: "I love it. We're all hungry to get better."

    Jim Eichenhofer ‏@Jim_Eichenhofer
    Davis and Rivers at NBA Rookie Transition program this week. Mason's wife is expecting baby. Other 11 Hornets are all here at Alario Center

    Looks like another minicamp coming up soon? Have never been more excited for a season to start

    Anthony Davis ‏@AntDavis23

    Just landed in N.O. #HornetNation
    Roger Mason Jr ‏@MoneyMase

    Wheels down in NO...work tomorrow! #GRINDMODE #hornets

    Things came to a standstill last week for obvious reasons, but Hornets players are heading in to town. A few were going to come last week

    Jim Eichenhofer ‏@Jim_Eichenhofer
    At one point prior to Isaac's approach it appeared to be possible that all or close to all 14 guys would be here at once, but got scrapped

    Some of you don't seem to like Warrick, but he was walking around the Warehouse District (saw him on Tchoup by Tommy's) with a real estate agent. Overheard their convo while I was at a red light. She was telling him about the neighborhood. Not sure if he was looking to buy or rent!

    We dislike Warrick the player, not the person.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    I don't dislike him for the sole reason that players can dramatically change under Monty so he gets a clean slate for me this year

    I think younger players can dramatically change. But Warrick is pretty set in his ways. He'll give us some athleticism. Hit some midrange shots, make some big get 'em hype plays. But anything more is lagniappe, anything less and he'll be on the pine while Jason Smith comes in to do his thing.

    Yea I agree with that but I think Monty might be able to amp warrick up a little bit. Better defense if anything
