    Didn't Houston just get a SG?

    I've been an optimist this whole time, but damn. Now I'm reconsidering.

    Gordan has a runny nose?

    This is comical. Tank is on early this year.

    I wonder if there are any clauses in a contract to void the deal if a player is intentionally not playing. It sure sounds like the guy is dogging it. If not, he is the softest player in the NBA.

    Obviously the doctors and gordon disagree. Now who thinks he is healthy enough to play, and who thinks he isn't healthy enough to play? The Doctor or Gordon? That is the million dollar question.

    Same here. I've been very optimistic on Gordon since last season. Any and all my optimism flew out the window around 30 minutes ago.

    You would think teams would try to write something like that in, but it's not something concrete and I would totally understand why a player would refuse to sign a contract with a clause like that in it.

    These are situations when I wish NBA contracts WEREN'T fully guaranteed. Ugh

    Yeah, that's why trading with them is no longer an option. They got their potential superstar at the 2 in Harden, and they gave up the better half of their assets to acquire him.

    Same thing here, guys. Same thing here......

    This has gotten so old.

    Never have I seen the word "indefinitely" associated with one player this often.

    We never really know what's wrong with him, or even how long he's ever going to be out.

    So frustrating.

    That nola article is something else. Obviously he simply doesn't want to play. They're going to have to get rid of him and trade him at some point. Max deal or not, the dude will be a PIA the rest of the time he's here.

    Comes back to the question of: "Why doesn't Monty know the status/situation?" This is one of your star players; he should be driving Gordon to the doctor and standing in on the diagnosis daily lol

    LOL! Sorry, fell asleep last night. Excuse my ignorance. Ya'll see the point I was trying to make though


    One of the reasons why the NBA can be frustrating. The players have all the power. Guaranteed contracts will do that to ya.

    Good point.

    Monty sounded PISSED in his quotes. He might just go Spreewell or Bob Knight on the next reporter who asks him about Gordon.

    Maybe he's out because every time he goes hard the knee acts up. It's frustrating, but let's just see what happens.

    And the guy has played through injuries before, he isn't weak.

    No contract should be FULLY GUARANTEED in any pro sports. Anyway it's not like the guy said he wanted to play somewhere else......oh wait a minute he did. (eyes rolling)

    I don't even care anymore to be honest. Austin Rivers is the future then. It just kind of sucks to be thin at SG now but whatever.

    time to get your stripes austin.

    Not letting this kill the opener for me i just will not do it.

    I'm angry but I'm still a supporter. We'll see what is actually going on later after shoot around. I'm sure Monty is grilling him (or hope) for WHY he can't go.

    Monty all but called him a certain part of a woman's anatomy that no man wants to be referred to as. Monty sounds like a guy who is sick of defending a player who obviously doesn't love basketball.

    To me, it sounded like the doctors told him one thing and Mr. Flake keeps saying "ow ow ow".

    I say they trade him for Simone Augustus straight up.

    This is how I feel. I'm over it. I don't want him to push it if he thinks he's gonna get hurt further.

    Rivers for tonight.

    My point with Granger for Gordon was Granger has 2 years on his contract; Gordon has 3, possibly 4 if he envokes player option, which you know he will do if he is always hurt.

    Get Granger and he is either an expiring you can use next year or he falls off the books in 2014. This is not a basketball trade, it is a financial one

    Did you read the article? He knows as much as he's going to know? He can't read a MRI. Doctor says he's fine. Gordon says he's not. What else do you want from a coach? I don't get it.

    Anyone else getting the feeling Gordon is working his way up to baron davis level cancer? Or is the guy really just damaged goods?
