    No, it's not. Calm down and see what happens the first 1/4 of the season before you go throwing out things like this.
    Wherehappens.

    Soon we will all be on the same side of this debate. More and more are coming to the side that an objective realist would be on. I wish I had the faith in Gordon that some do, but there is just too much evidence to the contrary.

    Agree with you and MyLanta. I was surprised that we signed him and had so much faith in Gordon mainly because of his injury record, but especially after the Suns situation. I can't believe we put up that much cash for Gordon and expected him to miss the season opener. I'm sure his a great guy, a great player, etc. However, at this point it almost sounds like a joke to include him in any discussion with New Orleans basketball. Does the organization really believe NOW that we work him in slowly this season and after that except for the occasional minor injury we get our $50 million+ out of Gordon for the remainder of his contract. I just don't think so.

    Gordon out indefinitely per Monty Williams.

    I am telling you, this will be the norm

    Ever heard of a pitch count? Do you have any idea why that is? This is a common practice in ALL SPORTS... and he probably doesn't even have full control of how this plays out. Monty and the Dr. are going to do what they want in regards to his playtime.

    NBA players play every 2 days or back to back, over 82 games. This is a lot of wear and tear. NFL players play 16 times a year with 7 days of rest between games. HUGE difference.

    Pretty disappointed by the comments....
    So, is out indefinately a PITCH COUNT? Common Sense? Give me a break dude.

    Either the Dr missed something, Gordon has no pain tolerance, He truly is just not ready, or Gordon just hustled everyone at a mastermind level - These are the options.

    Gordon is public enemy #1. If I had his jersey, I'd be burning it right now.
    Now I do voice overs. Finally!
