    Eric Gordon interview w/ HoopsHype

    Link

    Some interesting stuff in there such as:

    Looking back, would you change any of the things you said after signing that offer with the Phoenix Suns?

    EG: Well, they came on to the table to give me this big contract, and that was a big motivation for the Hornets to step up and match. They did it and now they made me a big key of what they're doing, so that's what I looked forward to.
    Take it for what it is.

    He's renting because out there, you have to rent.

    That comment through me off too. When you make MILLIONS you don't have to rent anywhere. Nothing is out of your price range. I think he doesn't like being in the South.

    People like to drive on Austin Rivers for being cocky but EG kinda came across as such...

    You have to be cocky in basketball. Two guys can have the same talent but the guy with confidence in his game and shot will kill the other guy. Anyone who's played even streetball knows that. Sometime it spills over to public life.

    Very True!

    Eh, I have a feeling he'll get traded this year. Who would you possibly trade him for is the question?

    I don't see anything bad he said in the interview. Jordan Hill was renting in Houston and so were a couple of other players from other NFL and NBA teams . I think he'll be ok and ball out this year.

    I'm not saying anything is bad with renting. I'm wondering what exactly he meant by "out there, you have to rent." Not a very clear sentence.

    He's talking about the housing market. How many times have you read in the last year that these players aren't getting back what they paid for these extravagant houses. I know Ive read it a bunch of Times.

    Sometimes I think about how terribly he handled that free agent process, and then I watch this.^

    I've watched that video more than a few times.

    8 seconds and 16 seconds will be money with Davis this year.

    He mentioned that he played a lot heavier than he usually does last year because his injury didn't allow him to get into shape. Pudgy Eric Gordon completely took over games last season... I can't wait to see what in-shape Eric Gordon does.

    Yup. The only thing to worry about is misplaced cockiness/confidence/swagger. That is what causes guys to take shots that make you scream "Nooooo!!!".

    In the offseason, it's a business. So it seems he was doing what was best for himself, but now that he is with the Hornets, he will play his best to win for the team that kept him.

    Somewhere Nick Young just said, "Don't worry, I got this" and chucked a 30 footer.

    Some make it as being "cocky" is wrong. Hell look where it led Kobe, so that with EG and Austin will be great for our team moving forward. That "I can;t be stopped and I'm the best," attitude will make our two future all-star guard un guardable.

    Seems like that would be true anywhere, not just "out there". Correct?

    Perhaps he's talking about because of hurricane season, or maybe louisiana taxes. But it's Eric so who the hell really knows.

    Interesting it looks like those highlights came via the Hornets new home, FSSW, aka FSNO.
