    Eric Gordon sounds, dare I say, happy?

    Today Gordon spoke to local reporters for the first time since signing his extension with the Hornets.

    From Eichenhofer and Geller's twitter:

    Eric Gordon on Hornets' excitement for the future: "We've got a lot of young, talented players. This is a long-term process."

    Gordon on NOLA bigs after Lopez pickup: "We really have some size. Having Smith, Lopez, Davis, Warrick. Our frontline is very good and big."

    Gordon handled all the bullets well from the media... says he is healthy, happy and looking forward to the start of training camp

    New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon relishing leadership role

    While New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon showed his charitable side Thursday at Langston Hughes Academy Charter School, he made it clear he's looking forward to the 2012 basketball season.

    As to how he'll be received among the Hornets' fan base this season, Gordon appeared confident that there won't be bumps in the road. The Hornets matched the Phoenix Suns' four-year, $58 million offer to him this summer that kept Gordon in the Crescent City.

    "I'm not nervous at all," Gordon said. "I'm here to help these fans, help this organization win games ... I'm happy here, and I'm just looking forward to the season."

    Nah. He wants out.

    Trade him to Siberia.


    But no, seriously. I can't wait for this season to get started.
    Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.

    Only on WBOK 1230 AM.

    Feel free to PM me for more details.

    I have no problems with him. It's a dirty business. He was a bit of a tool, but that's water under the bridge.

    The offseason, where we overreact to every inflection of a voice.

    After reading those statements, im sure that Eric Gordon still wants out. He clearly wants a trade.

    Now isn't the time to gauge Gordon's true feelings. He's gotten his money and he hasn't experience any adversity since. If we struggle and he's saying things like this at the end of the year it will hold some weight IMO.

    Eric Gordon was recently spotted drinking Sunny Delight. That's a clear sign where his heart really is in Phoenix.

    Not really because anyone with sense knows that's exactly what he's going to do. That's Eric.
