Oh God. Comparing himself to Bynum and Granger. Not good.
Glass half full:
Glass half empty... with a crack in the bottom:"I've talked to him already, just reacquainting and talking about his rehab and things of that nature. He said it's going really well. He was pretty upbeat about it.

Guess who is putting in time at WBOK 1230 AM Talk Radio... Don't guess, it's me. Tune in this Friday for Sport-a-Talk with Roe Brown and you might just hear me!
Feel free to PM me for details.
With Davis's injury, I could careless if he comes back anytime soon or not. Take your time.
The tank may not be literally on, but it definitely feels like it is.

Anybody else think that it is a little weird that Monty is just catching up with him now? I mean, this is supposed to be your star and every time Dell and Monty talk they act like they never speak with the guy and they are blindsided by what is going on with him.
I know they will say "We are just focused on the guys who are here", yada, yada, yada, but we have seen such poor communication on several occassions with these three. It's just incredibly frustrating on so many levels.
Speaking of frustrating, the game is about to start!
Monty doesn't surprise me, and you're off about Dell. He just mentioned like a week or two ago that they were monitoring it. And yeah, you know it's bad when you are fearing a game starting lol
In regards to Dell, I am referring to the offseason when he said that he hadn't been in contact with Gordon during that moretorium period and therefore hadn't talked to him about the Hornets plans with him
Biggest free agent decision of your career, you are going to dedicate 58 million to the guy, and you don't call him and let him know your plans? Just odd and it wasn't how they worked with CP3. They talked to him about everything, sometimes multiple times a day
Im still in disbelief that we gave this dude money.
I keep waiting to wake up and see that this didn't "Really" happen.
I think some of that was posturing and I also remember that after the fact we were told Gordon's agent asked them not to talk to Gordon. But to your main point, I can't imagine the same lack of communication happening with any other star player around the league short of the crazy ones like Cousins.In regards to Dell, I am referring to the offseason when he said that he hadn't been in contact with Gordon during that moretorium period and therefore hadn't talked to him about the Hornets plans with him

Honestly i was shocked to see him standing and CHEERING for his "teammates" last night. He gained a couple points with me for that fact alone.
Seriously, it was the 1st time since we traded for him he actually looked engaged on the bench.
I know it doesn't mean much but we'll see. It's the little things
"You don't wanna be in Taco. You wanna be in Gap 2" - Monty installing defense
He was actually paying attention?!?! HOORAY!.....
Don't get me wrong i don't think it means much but I gave him a few points for it. That's all.
Interesting comment on NOLA.com
Gordon's meniscus (fibrocartilage) is fine, so he's clearly having problems with his hyaline cartilage (or articular cartilage), which is what covers the tips of your bones and provides that smooth glide in the knee joint. What hasn't been said is if it's the articular cartilage covering the tip of his femur, tibia or behind his patella (knee cap).
A lot of you fans are uneducated. The cartilage is a tricky material. It's totally avascular, which means it has no blood supply like other organs, which means it takes longer to heal. This is a crucial time for Gordon. IF he does further damage, he could need micro-fracture surgery to create new articular cartilage (the newly created articular cartilage isn't as good as the original though). IF his condition is anything like Andrew Bynum's, it means his articular cartilage is a little soft or in a "weakened state". That's probably where the bruising and swelling came from.
Gordon is doing the right thing. He's strengthening the quad, which is major to the health of his knee joint. He's also giving his knee rest, which is clearly what it needs. I think it's good that he hasn't played on this, making it worse.
It sucks, but it is what it is. People will just have to be patient. He'll come back 100% and avoid any future problems if he stays patient.
Now I feel all jerky for blowing up on him.
Eh. I'll remain vindicative though.
I don't know how you can't get excited about playing for Monty - he is Old School and I think the players respect that more than anything. He might drive some people nuts with his player combos, but who cares, IF Monty told me to walk in a tub of lava for a halftime show I would it and say "thank you for asking me".

Gordon can earn the fans back easy as pie. Get on the court when fully healthy and ball. Say the right things, and the rest will come.
