    As nolaslim said, calm down guys. He had surgery and swelling/soreness is normal. Is it concerning considering everything he's been through, sure.

    But I really think that he's still growing mentally as a player. I think all of the BS we went through with him matured him a bit and hopefully that means he can play on a bit of pain if need be. In the end, we have a young guy finally that can fill in if need be. Sitting him is a good idea for the time being and I think it is more of Monty's idea than his.

    Leave the guy alone. It may seem crazy to say on a NBA board, but I don't think sports is equal to the commitment of marriage OR joining a gang. If he likes both then eh, I can't imagine dividing up my attention between two teams but whatever. He has no real obligation to either team, last I checked.

    And on the real topic, its more frustrating than anything to me. I just hope they are being overly cautious, but who knows.

    I honestly don't know if you understand that it was sarcasm or examples.

    Probably older than you.


    Do you think every married guy that has an affair (and it's something like almost 50% of all married men) don't love their wives?

    For me, its the history. Dude played a handful of games last season then made it clear he didn't want to be here. Once the Hornets matched Phoenix's offer, he comes back on Media Day saying he'll probably miss most of the preseason? To me, I'm gonna be worried he's hella injury prone, or worried he's acting like he's injury prone to force a trade.

    If it was an actual injury I'd worry, but it isn't. It's not even swelling, just soreness.

    Should be a nonstory, and if it was Henry instead it would be.

    Getting into the definition of love with you and what it means from person to person if probbly not possible in a forum post. You often hear the phrase "love and devotion" because they don't mean the same thing and one doesn't necessary have to have the other to exist.

    But actually to me, I don't really ever feel like I want to **** my NBA team, so comparing the love to that of a woman is probably wrong. To me it is more like that of a love for a child, wanting to see it do well, to watch it grow and develop. Would you say that you can't love two children equally or even ten? I would say you can love two children absolutely equally, each in their own way. And with that I'll leave this dumb discussion alone.

    Have you ever had two children who played against each other in some sort of sport?

    I have. It is like you just hope both do well and you feel sad for the one who loses.

    Does it really matter if the guy is a Hornets fan AND Clippers/CP3 fan? Is your world going to end because he supports two teams when we choose to support one?

    Seems like a lot of people on here are just picking a fight for the sake of picking a fight. Pretty stupid and petty.

    NO. As I said it's just weird to me that two of his fav teams is one we love and one some Hornets fans hate. No biggie. I wish Cp well if he stops the flopping. People are acting like someone called the guy a jerk or ******* from liking both team. IDK maybe it'd because I don't love 2 teams equally.

    I am not worried at all. The rest is a good thing for Eric. It is a long season, and there is not much of a need for our star veteran to log many minutes in the preseason.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the knee is 100%, and they are just doing this for preventative reasons.
