A lot of people I know always comment about the offense Eric will bring, but often forget that his defense is very good and much better than anyone we have of the perimeter now.

T-word is like ****ting your pants. Just get a warm feeling...but in the end...you still just stink.
Williams said after Monday's practice: "He looked pretty encouraging, but we'll see how he feels tomorrow.''
"The greatest threat to the domination is the equality."
I don't think they practiced yesterday, so he had a lot of time to rest and see if some swelling develops. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough when the team reports for shootaround.
I thought he was already ruled out for Wed? Are we just talking about Friday potential? I'd just be happy if he traveled with the team.
He was ruled out.

He was ruled out, but that doesn't mean he won't participate in the shootaround.
Yeah they ruled him out for tonight's game over the weekend. Haven't heard anything yet about Friday or Saturday. Hoping he can come back Friday.
Jennifer Hale's tweet:
"Eric Gordon here in Orlando, working out w/ #Hornets during shoot around. Not expected to play tonight vs #Magic."
I don't know how we judge which GM's would have re-signed Gordon from those who wouldn't. We see what Sam Presti does when he can't sign his players to the contracts and/or time frames he thinks is acceptable. We could have traded Gordon last year or even gave him the max deal, but instead we choose to play hard ball. Now both side are coming away looking bad. To top things off the one team that we know for sure would have given Gordon the contract he has is no longer a potential trade partner. Now if he really just doesn't want to be here or health continues to be a problem this kills us cap wise. Who's going to want to come here if 20% of the cap is going to a guy who always out of the line up?

Reading another board there seems to be a idea that Gordon will take away shots from Anderson because he looks for himself first.
Gordon may take a shot or so away from Anderson a game on average but his efficiency will go up.
Well...yeah. Of course he's going to take shots away from Anderson. Anderson won't be the #1 option.
Was he trying to make that out as a negative?

I like it. It's a good way to bond. Endear Eric to his teammates and vice versa.
Interesting if Gordon debuts Saturday, that is an NBA TV game against Charlotte. Hornets might get some extended gum flapping time on national tv.
