"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.'"
Teams:New Orleans Hornets(Pelicans) & Houston Texans
With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!
Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.
Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.
He wanted the big city and lights. That's it. Having met him out and having friends who knew him pretty well, he isn't the guy he portrays himself to be. There is a reason the list of teams he was willing to go to was so short. We could have gotten something better for him from another smaller market team.
Look, I don't dislike him at all. I actually admire the way he has played things. He never hated on the city, he just wanted to play in a bigger one. The way he has people eating out of his hands is quite remarkable.
I don't know if I ever said I don't believing anything he said but I'm sure I did say something like I never take any public statement by an athlete at its face value.

Paul was great. best player so far in the history of the Hornets. And a class act. I just wish we had a competent GM and an owner who wanted to win.
Oh well we have the Brow.... we have a promising future.

No surprise hear, I've heard about this during 2010 season
Anybody still think he wouldn't want to come back with all of the help we got him?
I still don't think he'd want to come back.
For the record, I still think Gordon will come back, play well, and people will forget about the nonsense and just enjoy basketball.
Wonder if you'll be saying the same thing a year from now when he's still only played a handful of games?
