Utter waste of cap space, I might add.

"Hornets means nothing." - Tom Benson
This lack of specific infos is frustrating and if the case is on of these two: A) they signed him without a 100% knowledge of his medical problem or B) They knew it and it's a cronic condition... Well that's pretty much scary and untrustworthy on Demps managerial skills.
I am in a no-win situation I guess. Thanks guys
"I don't know if people know — I dislocated my pinkie finger. And [Tyreke] told me, 'You wanna go home or you wanna be here?' I want to be here. And he said, 'All right, then go tape it up and let's play. Let's go. We not stoppin' at no stores. Straight gas. That's what we do, just keep going.'"
EDIT: I just hate when people say insider info, but there's only a 50% chance that this may happen.
A little perspective never hurts.
Dwayne Wade has missed double digit games in 4 of his 9 seasons, and has played in less than 80% of his teams' games in his career. What a soft little baby right? Ray Allen has had multiple injury issues in his career, even in his prime. Manu, Vince Carter, TMac, Brandon Roy...the list for elite 2 guards goes on and on. The life of a shooting guard is probably the roughest of any position. They run, cut and attack the paint the most, and take the most contact and damage proportional to their size. If they are not close to 100%, it is better to rest than to play through it for a young team with long term goals.
You roll the dice with these guys, injuries or not, because a dynamic scorer on the level of EJ is very rare and absolutely essential to winning big in this league.
So as frustrating as this is, resigning him was still the right NBA business decision. McNamara and his ilk (didn't realize David Thorpe was a doctor) giving definitive armchair medical opinions on a 23 year old with no reported degenerative or structural body issues is meaningless to me. Its just overly emotional babble from know-it-alls who have never laced em up and probably can't drop a single-single in a YMCA pick up game, much less go against the world's greatest athletes 3 times a week. I'm not in EJ's head and don't pretend to know what he feels. Lulz at you guys screaming in your dockers and loafers from your cubicles about what kind of pain YOU would play through if you were him. Comedy.
You DO NOT eff around with knee injuries. I'd much rather he sit and get right.
Nows just not the time to say "I told you so." We can see it with our eyes, unfortunately. And it's getting so old.

"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."
The Hornets need to be more transparent with the fans & stop lying to us
Dell Demps PLEASE get us some scorers!
As to you specifically? I honestly don't remember reading anything about you saying this or that about Gordon's health. Don't take it the wrong way, but I was only a sometimes visitor to 24/7, the way I am with AtTheHive. Not dissing, just how my rounds go when I'm bouncing around the Internet as I do. Can only speak for myself though.
Now I do voice overs. Finally!

It's because you act like you're all of fifteen years old, little Mikey.
I don't think you guys understand. I don't care how you all view me personally, I just think some people should realize that they are hypocrits with regard to what they want and ask for and this is why the "mainstream" media will always play it safe; because there is no reason to tell people what is really going on behind the scenes.
Just watch how Nola.com covers this story, how ESPN does (if they do), what Monty and Dell say in public. It is because there is no benefit to telling the public the truth- only downside.
I still havent learned yet, but I might someday
This summer when Phoenix wanted him and he told NO he didn't want to return I said lets work out a sign & trade and people bashed me. I realized that he was the centerpiece from the CP3 trade but now he's only going to hurt the franchise even further now
Truths can suck. But I'm not a baby, unlike some "athletes" I know of, I can handle it. Hell. I'm already over the hard emotional part.
If he carried himself more like Joe and Jason, it wouldn't be a problem.
