    I for one have said we may be a .500 team at best with Gordon returning. Keep on trying.
    He was talking about when LeBron was still on the team, but out injured. And the Cavs lost more than just LeBron when he left.

    And we have lost more than Gordon throughout the season, but i see your point. Delante West for Sessions and Mo Williams for Baron Davis was probably the cause of their historically bad record.

    Teams can survive without their best player for a few games. It's when the player misses a significant amount of time. LeBron never missed more than 7 games in a season in his entire career.

    Also, let's look at another example of a team missing their best player. In 2010-2011, Eric Gordon missed 26 games. The Clippers were 25-31 with him on the court, and 7-19 without him. That team started out 1-11 (w/ Gordon) and had some big struggles early. So after that, they were 24-20 with Gordon on the court. Could the Hornets face a similar situation? I think so for sure. That Clippers team was not as good as this Hornets team.

    I appreciate your response and respect it, but this forum is primarily based on opinion and speculation....you could have worded your thought much better and not have it come out sounding the way it did....MyLanta said that Gordon was seen "home shopping" in Belle Chasse and your statement indicated to me that you felt MyLanta was either mistaken or not telling the truth, because there is no way he would reside there....as pointed out by several others, there are some very nice places to live in Belle Chasse proper and I could easily see him at least "looking" there....anyway, thanks again for clarifying things a bit more....

    I completely understand where you're coming from. I just wrote a quick response that could have easily been worded differently and coherently. I was just surprised that Eric would house shop there and threw out an opinion. I never thought that I was disregarding MyLantas information but I guess I did.

    Taking my post down, but my point in it was saying you shouldn't post it because it's too easy to find that way. Took me all of 4 seconds.

    Hope that's a gated community. Last thing he needs is some overzealous fan paying a house call.

    Edit: It is not. Internet is a scary place. I've driven through the neighborhood a few times now that I recall.

    Some Hornets fancy-pants live in English Turn. What's good for the fancy pants is good for the whoevers.

    Plus, he could easily have an apartment or second place if that was too inconvenient.

    Many Saints players and staff do NOT live in New Orleans or even sleep here (or JP or whatever). Think Northshore, especially after Katrina. Destrehan.

    Or they just have an apartment and really `live' back home.

    There are some new subdivisions going up in Belle Chase that puts English Turn to shame. And I personally can't stand the area, so no bias here. It's just too far from anything resembling city life. Buts that's what some people like.

    Meh. Guess I figured he doesn't live there it was just his first visit. And if he does move in it's not like people aren't gonna know. Me and all my friends have known where Monty lives for years now. Kinda hard not to.

    Point taken though. I took it down just in case he doesn't feel too cool to live in Belle Chasse.

    Isn't the Bulls still in the playoff hunt and they've been without Rose (a better player) the same amount of time we've been without Gordon this season. Also I remember the Grizzs making it to post season play without Rudy Gay.

    No team can be a true contender without it's best player, but it doesn't mean they have to play poorly either.

    The Rose point is good. But at the time, the Grizzlies were playing so well because Gay and Randolph/Gasol hadn't learned how to work together yet. Gay being injured allowed the team to play to its strengths, and when Gay came back he had to adjust to that. That situation is actually what teams should do: find out what works when you don't have a star piece and implement it. I just don't think the surrounding talent on the Hornets allows Monty to do that. It's hard to build an offense around slow guard play and getting Anderson open looks.

    that's two entirely different situations. Neither of those two teams are in a rebuilding process...what team that's rebuilding and turned their roster over can survive without their franchise player?

    I wish I got this joke. What kind of house did our best player ever have?

    If I was a fantastically talented basketball player, I would probably be just like Gordon (except for "heart in Phoenix" statement). I would be just as quiet, cautious, and poor at PR as him while also having no desire to live in a city. Lol

    I love to visit cities occassionly, but I tire of them over the course of a weekend. Just not my style.

    A smart NBA employee, according to New York Knicks forward Steve Novak, doesn’t buy a home in the city where he works; he rents. “Statistically, very few guys stay in one place, so I think the people you have around you, your agents and advisors, are people that tell you to rent, don’t buy,” Novak said. “You are probably not going to be there forever, and even if you feel like you are, you can’t guarantee it. The guys who find a home are lucky, but I think a lot guys do bounce around for their whole career.” Novak, of course, had always been one of those guys before finding a good landing spot in Manhattan. Drafted as a Houston Rocket, Novak has played for five different teams in only seven NBA seasons. However, after a career year with the Knicks in 2011-12, Novak was able to ink a four-year deal to stay in New York. HoopsWorld
