Let's get back to your regular scheduled knee
I alluded to a medical fact. Knee injuries are made worse by rushing back from them too soon. I'll wait for you to link the medical evidence suggesting playing in pain on a recently injured knee is good for you.
And please keep telling yourself you know what EJ is going through, while the rational among us leave emotion out of it and exhibit patience.
Go ahead and be patient, and every year and that one patient Oden fan can have a party. Good luck.

Eric Gordon out indefinitely due to head injury from Soggy Nachos thrown by fan during opening night.
It'll be interesting to see the fan reaction tonight if Gordon is introduced to the fans. I'm guessing since it's opening night they'll introduce the entire team, no?
"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
This won't kill my joy for tonight in the slightest....even if we lose I just wanna see these young guys that WANT TO PLAY for their teammates and for their city on the floor. I've just been exhausted with guys not wanting to play for us. IMO I've always appreciated guys no matter the talent level that wanted to be on the floor and put every thing they had into it. (there is a reason so many people love/loved guys like JJAck, Aaron Gray, Jason Smith...) Guys like Gordon just don't have that but this young nucleus seems to truly like playing for this organization, for their coach and with each other.
So i'm excited for tonight. And I think this whole Eric Gordon thing might be a blessing in disguise for a guy like Rivers whole thrives in his natural position.

Gordon would say he's too sick to play if he had a 98.7deg temperature.
Gordon is supposed to address the media tomorrow about his knee.
Well I wish this wasn't the case. But I have been saying that I thought the Rivers pick was to hedge the bet on Gordon in case he was not ready for the season. Anybody can tell me different but I won't believe them. People on here also need to give Michael a break. I mean my god where else are you gong to get this kind of hornets coverage. The answer, NO WHERE !!!! I remember when he said that a bout Gordon & David Thorpe made his comments, we all were hoping he was going to be ok. But its not & I would not be surprised to see the Horents move in a new direction with Gordon now if the knee doesnt get any better this year.
at least we still have rivers...if gordon cant play by january, I say trade this fool if anybody wants him
He seemed optimistic about the season a couple days ago. It would just be strange if he is faking it. I see no logical reason for him to fake it whether he wants to be here or not. Hes one of those players who wants to be an all time great- sitting out for the hell of it just makes no sense. This is just a new breed of insanity.
To be fair, I don't think Gordon is faking an injury or pain as some may have suggested. So i don't think Gordon is lying, but if the doctors say it's fine, which i think they have, and there's no risk at damaging it more and he's still not playing, then thats where my frustraton lies.
Lets just call him Erica Gordon.
I tore my ACL in July and had my knee surgery july 27th and I think I'll get back on the court faster than Gordon.
