    Back pats still aren't needed. If you know you can't win when dealing with crowds then stop trying to win with them. If you were right about something I'm pretty sure the people you told it to already has it in the back of their heads saying "damn, he was right". No real need for the "oh we know people and we told you so's".

    That Houston deal sure looks better now. Too bad, as Ryan pointed out, we no longer have a guaranteed stocked trading partner in Houston anymore when you take into consideration the Harden trade.

    "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."

    No one is going to touch this guy in a trade unless we get utterly hosed. I thought we were done dumping bad contracts, but maybe not. Tissue paper is right. Sheesh.

    I hope Dell doesn't end up being the fall guy for matching EG but we all knew this was a possibility....I honestly hope we can at least prop him up on the court till the deadline arrives and someone desperate enough takes a chance..

    I thought the same thing. He sounds done with Gordon and his nonsense.

    I agree- Ryan was right on that one for sure. I still think Indy is an option. Hometown boy, George is better at the 3 anyway. Gordon for Granger straight up. If they hit on their risk, they have a legit shot at the Heat. For us, we get a guy on a shorter contract and a hometown guy who will appreciate being here.

    I would explore it at least and move forward with a Davis, River, Anderson, 2013 draft pick core

    I still might buy his jersey but replace the name Gordon with ***** (a couple 5 letter words that describe him... Be creative!)

    This is not a good way to start off with new ownership if you're Williams and Demp. The warning signs have been there all along and they chose to ignore them. Benson is probably not happy.

    And the slaps aren't needed.

    Can't speak for Mike, but I don't try to win with crowds. Never have. Never will.

    I do my service.

    I also point out hypocrisy.

    Isnt Granger out indefinately with a knee as well? I think for Indiana it'd be George or no one. Plus George adds Length and the ability to play the 3 if needed which gives us more flexability in the draft/ FA.

    That would be good, except Granger is out indefinitely too.

    Damn, balls beat me to it.

    Well, if he's not playing because he really doesn't want to be here, perhaps that word will get to other GM's and they'll want him.

    In the offseason I became a bit apathetic to Gordon when he began all the "my heart is in Phoenix" stuff but since they re-signed him, I was just going to hope for the best for him and our team. They'll figure something out when it needs to be figured out. At this point, I'm just ready to watch my rookies grow and watch the players we put on the court play hard.

    I have been one of his biggest supporters. And I'm officially off the Gordon wagon.

    What was the Houston trade again? is it still possible to get rid of him? or is he basically just dead weight on the roster now?

    I'm curious to see if all the Gordon defenders will keep their heads in the sand.
