Thread: Gordon is OUT indefinitely

  1. #276
    If and only if this info is true, it really shows you how immature Gordon is. He could have a little class and play ball until trading him is a possibility. After the debacle in the summer, you'd think he grew up a little.

    I guess we'll find out this part in a few hours.

    Indeed. It would show a lot if he's not on suited up on the bench.

    If true, that's really disheartening. He isn't even giving the team a chance.

    That's good. Because we know people here. It could've gotten very ugly and I don't really feel like watching what is supposed to be a grown man crying tonight. Don't feel like watching it!

    Fair point. We'll agree to disagree. And is Snowlaw ever credible btw?

    In my personal opinion it would absolutely insane to have Gordon sit on the bench for tonights game. His presence would create a huge distraction for the team and it would be in both his and the Organizations best interest to keep him out of the arena tonight for safety reasons. I think the Organization is doing a smart thing but getting him out of Dodge today.

    I guess the only way he'd be happy with this team if they initially offered him 5/80. I think that was what he wanted all along and a big reason why he's being resentful towards the team. When is he going to start looking in the mirror be honest with himself?

    I'd say it's like 50/50. Maybe 60/40.

    As soon as it was revealed that he would be out indefinitely it crossed my mind that I wouldn't be surprised if he were boo'd tonight. You know how we do. LOL.

    Who is going to trade for a guy who hasn't played this season and has a max contract? Is this dude brain dead? Wouldn't it be best to go and ball out if you want a trade so other teams will actually be interested in your sorry ***. Obviously after his "summer tour" the only team that was interested was Phoenix.

    Then why not play until he CAN be traded?

    You would think so right? He proved this offseason that he's a bit special though so I don't know.

    Goodness. Is it game time yet?

    risk of injury? I seriously hope we don't pretend he's hurt until December. Should of just taken whatever scraps the Suns would of gave us.

    Well, it's sort of a good thing from the Hornets perspective. A legitimately injured Gordon is worth less (trade value wise) than Gordon with a 'fake' injury. Moreover, you tank more games for a higher pick!

  20. #295
    I don't see how there isn't a clause where if a player CAN play and WON'T you cant renege/recoup the deal. I mean isn't it essentially the same thing as an EMPLOYEE refusing to work? (this is IF what snowlaw is speculating about trade is true)

    Fake injury or real it'll be less leverage for us which is the messed up part. If it's a real knee issue teams wont give up much. If we come out and say, he doesn't want to be here: Teams know they have us and will take advantage.

    The Hornets are supposedly still keeping the doors open in case he has a change of heart . I can't imagine it's on the organization's side.

    If he refuses to work. But didn't you see the post earlier about what the doc thinks he should be feeling compared to what he IS feeling? How do you prove in the court of law he's injured if you try to recoup those millions?
